Layercake lagenlook Linen Tabard

* The model in the pictures is 5'7" and wearing Layercake size 1.

We are currently out of stock of Red Cross-weave Linen, so Red is not available for pre-order until further notice (the factory that weaves our linen is on lock-down). All available sizes in Red Cross-weave are listed.

The Tabard is another over-piece in the Layercake line-up. It creates an equally effective yet strikingly different silhouette to the Knitting Smock, as the points of the bottom hem are at the front and back rather than the sides. This is liked particularly well by legging-wearers who prefer the front and back of their garments to be slightly longer but love the shorter sides.

Size 3 Petite: available both in the Smock as well as the Tabard shape for size 3's of 5'4" or less.

Following here is a guideline; we recommend 5 cm (2 in) positive ease:
Size 0: bust up to 90 cm (36 in) - garment measures 95 cm (38 in)
Size 1: bust up to 107 cm (42 in) - garment measures 112 cm (44 in)
Size 2: bust up to 122 cm (48 in) - garment measures 127 cm (50 in)
Size 3: bust up to 135 cm (53 in) - garment measures 140 cm (55 in)

We also offer limited edition wool Smocks and Tabards, listed HERE. For seasonal news and special offers, sign up for the newsletter (scroll to the bottom of the page).

About the Cross-weaves:
This is 100% pre-shrunk linen that was woven to our specifications. We are thrilled with the result and trust that you will be as well.

ABOUT OUT OF STOCKS: if a certain fabric/size shows as pre-order, it means we DO have more fabric, the garment just needs to be made for you, so if you place an order for a pre-order item, please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery.
If a colour/size combination shows as "unavailable" then both the garments and the fabric are out of stock and we do not expect any new fabric iin the next couple of months at least.

"Last chance": colours marked as "last chance" are going to be replaced with a different colour, so if you are keen on a "last chance" garment, please beware that, once out of stock, it will no longer be available and we cannot take special orders for it.

Key features:

  • made from top quality Irish and Italian linens
  • pre-washed and pre-shrunk, so they can be thrown in the washing machine and dryer, getting only better over time
  • nice big pockets on both sides
  • in a range of colours making them versatile and suitable for wide range of occasions
  • made for a range of different shapes and sizes
  • the pointed shaping of the hem elongates legs and hides knees when worn with bare legs in the Summer.
