SIMPLIFIED ORDER AND STOCK SYSTEM (JULY 2020)
if a certain fabric/size shows the "add to cart" option, then there are 2 possibilities:
1. we have some ready-made in stock (shown directly below the product price).
2. it is a pre-order, i.e. we have to make it for you. If this is the case, you will be able to put it in your cart and order it, and you'll realise that we wont be able to ship immediately (pre-orders usually take between 2-4 weeks)
If we have run out of stock AND fabric, it will show as "No longer available" and you will not be able to add it to your cart, it truly is all gone.
September fabric update: We are currently awaiting new stock of Dark Teal and Pinstripe. As a result, if your size in these colours is not in stock, it will take an extra 2 weeks before we are ready to ship your order. Order times for these 2 colours will return to normal by the middle of October. Thank you for your patience!
* The model in the pictures is 5'7" and wearing a Layercake size 1 Smock and Large Baggies in the Long length.
This is first ever playsuit I have worn that looks fabulous, feels like the most comfortable piece of clothing you have ever worn and you don't have to take it off when you go to the loo! AND it looks great regardless of age, shape and size of the wearer. Honestly, what's not to like?
You throw it on like a dress, then close it with a clever zip AT THE BOTTOM!
Available in the usual typical 4 Layercake sizes but also in 3 different lengths, because the Layercake motto is EVERY BODY HAPPY
About the Scottish Wool:
This fabric is produced on a very small scale in Scotland by a traditional wool tweed mill. Currently, demand of the Playsuits far outstrips availability of the fabric. Please bear with us while we catch up, our Scottish friends are weaving as fast as they can!
We recommend 5 cm (2in) positive ease:
Size 0: bust up to 90 cm (36in) - garment measures 95 cm (38in)
Size 1: bust up to 107 cm (42in) - garment measures 112 cm (44in)
Size 2: bust up to 122 cm (48in) - garment measures 127 cm (50in)
Size 3: bust up to 135 cm (53in) - garment measures 140 cm (55in)
Petite: for ladies up to 160 cm (5ft 4in) - garment measures 125 cm (4ft 1in)
Please note: for a size 3, we recommend the petite for ladies up to 155 cm(5ft 2in) and the medium for ladies up to 175 cm (5ft 9in) - when in doubt, use the garment length as your guide and check whether that length hits your leg at the point you would like it to. The design is for the playsuit to be slightly cropped, but the longer length options give you the choice to wear it to a length of your liking.
Medium: for ladies of 160 cm (5ft 4in) to 175 cm (5ft 9in) - garment measures 135 cm (4ft 5in)
Tall: for ladies of 170 cm (5ft 7in) to 193 cm (6ft) - garment measures 145 cm (4ft 9in) - please order HERE
