* The model in the pictures is 5'7" and wearing Layercake size 1.
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
Because 4 x 3 = 12 different variants (for each fabric we choose), we do not hold stock of all different variants.
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 garment and the fabric are out of stock and we do not expect any new fabric in the next couple of months at least.
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 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 180 cm (5ft 11in) - garment measures 135 cm (4ft 5in)
Tall: for ladies of 170 cm (5ft 7in) to 190 cm (6ft 2in) - garment measures 145 cm (4ft 9in) - please order HERE
