Layercake lagenlook Linen Tabard

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

Red Cross-weave Linen is scheduled to arrive at the end of June (hurray!) so out of stock sizes are available again for pre-order FOR DELIVERY MID JULY. All available garments in Red Cross-weave are listed as available and will be shipped immediately.

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)

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 OR sold out", then choose the "pre-order" variant instead. If its price then shows, 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 you choose the pre-order variant and it still shows the "pre-order or sold out" text  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.

"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.
