Details

The Cotton Love Top takes versatility to a new level  top in our new organic cotton jersey. Available in the usual 4 sizes plus the new 00, this top can be sized up or down for a more or less fitted look, depending on the silhouette you like. Check the fit guide below this description for more details. Its main features are 3/4 length sleeves, a sweeping neckline that complements your existing Layercakes and a slight sweep to the hemline (so it is a bit longer in the back, just like the Linen Love Tops). Choose your regular Layercake size for a loose, relaxed fit or size down for a fitted top that still offers complete freedom of movement.

Composition: 95% Organic Cotton / 5% Elastane

A note about fit
Because of the Dolman sleeves (the body panels and sleeves are cut in one piece rather than setting in the sleeves separately, just like the dress of the same name) the Love Top is slightly more generous around the shoulders and bust. This clever shape allows you to size both up for a loose fit or down for a fitted top, depending on your preference. The cut is such that a closer fit is perfect for wearing under your existing Layercakes, whereas a loose fit allows you to throw it over the top of your other outfits.

 

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 won't be able to ship immediately (pre-orders usually take between 2-4 weeks, up to 6 weeks during very busy times like Oct-Nov)
PLEASE NOTE: standard-sized made to order garments CAN be returned for a refund!

If you need an outfit for a special occasion, please contact me BEFORE placing your order to ensure it can be made and shipped to reach you in time.

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.

The Slow Wardrobe sizes
We follow our own sizing system, recognising that the traditional system of "ladies dress-sizes" does not account for body shape and height. See how The Slow Wardrobe sizes relate to body measurements HERE.

Shirt / Love Top
4 sizes, designed to fit a very wide range of sizes and heights, from a UK size 10 to 28. Check these garment measurements to give you an idea of the fit for each size.

The Love Top is available both in a selection of linen colours as well as a selection of organic cotton jerseys. When choosing your size for the cotton jersey, you can opt for close to no positive ease for a more fitted look (the stretch will give you ease of movement despite a close fit).

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.

Find out more about our linen.

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.
