Layercake Linen Love DressRegular price £219.00
Layercake sizes run from 0 - UK8-12 to 3 - UK 22-26 (0-3 = US6-22)
So PLEASE check your measurements against our sizes before you order.
The Love Dress has a similar silhouette to the Tulip Dress and the Smock (a slight balloon-shape to the skirt) but with the addition of sleeves! Like most Layercakes, the Love Dress has large pockets and is made of medium-weight or sturdy, hard-wearing linen that both age beautifully and will serve you for years. The shape the sleeves allows you to wear the Love Dress as an over-piece, by itself or as an underpinning to a list of sleeveless Layercakes.
Colour update 10 May:
- we have run out of the Cherry Linen, the 1 dress left in stock is the only one still available (size 1R)
- same goes for the Large Purple Check, a couple of dresses left in sizes 1 and 2 but we cannot make any additional sizes until further notice
Two different weights...
The Love Dresses come in 2 different linen weights: our heavier weight (Large Purple Check, Violet and Steel) and our medium weight (Chartreuse, Charcoal Stripe and Magpie).
The Love Dress comes in the Regular length (which is identical to the Regular length Tulip Dress) and also in the new Petite length. The regular length measures 113cm (44.5in), the Petite length measures 100cm (39.5in), which is a great midi length on shorter frames and knee-length on tall ones.
A note about lengths
When we introduce a new length, we do not just add or take away some fabric at the bottom of the garment. We change the proportions of the garment throughout. So a shorter version will suit a shorter frame at every point, same for a longer one. Example: if you usually order a regular length dress and would like to try the Petite, then it will fit you fine but you will notice that e.g. the pockets will hit you a bit higher on your hips.
