Details

The Dress has a similar silhouette to the Smock, with a slight balloon-shape to the skirt. Like most Layercakes, the Dress has large pockets and is made of our sturdy, hard-wearing linen that ages beautifully and will serve you for years. The depth of the armholes allows you to wear the Dress either as an over-piece or by itself.

For our Summer-version in a medium-weight linen, see HERE.

For our Wool version, see HERE.

“MY CHOICE" colour requests and how to order them:
This option allows you to pick a Layercake Linen colour that is not standard for this garment. We will then make this garment in your choice of colour.

To order:

  1. Pick a colour from the big picture with the list of names and swatches.
  2. Select the colour "my choice", select your size, then add to cart.
  3. On the Cart page, type the colour of your choice in the "Note to The Slow Wardrobe" box.
  4. Check out as usual.

If a certain fabric/size shows the "add to bag" option, then there are 2 possibilities:

1. We have some ready-made in stock (shown directly above the "add to bag" button).

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.

Layercake Sizes
Layercake follows a different sizing system, recognising that the traditional system of "ladies dress- sizes" does not account for body shape and height.Read more about the background to this HERE.

Custom sizes
We do everything we can to be truly size-inclusive. We can highly individualise your Layercake, by adapting the standard fit and/or choosing a non-standard fabric/colour.

Linen Care & Washing Instructions
Every Layercake has washing labels sewn into them, usually in the left side-seam.
All our linen is pre-shrunk, unless stated otherwise and can be machine-washed at 40º C and either line-dried or machine-dried. If you machine-dry them, take them out of the dryer as soon as it finishes and hang them up straightaway, then you will not have to iron them.

Our Linen
Linen is one of the world's strongest textiles and most sustainable fashion choices, creating zero waste as every part of the plant is used (for textiles and food). Our linen is all European grown, yarn-dyed and woven especially for us, then boil-washed to pre-shrink it.

Wearability
Linen is not only a Summer fabric, it is also a natural insulator, providing warmth when it is needed and offering the perfect base for a layered look, trapping air between the layers to keep you cozy year-round.
