Layercake Lagenlook Linen Dress

After many requests from our super-enthusiastic Layercake Ambassadors (you know who you are!), we are finally getting ready to introduce the Layercake Dress...

This is a listing for pre-orders; the dress will be available in the brand-new Small Linen Check and in the Black Pinstripe.

We MAY introduce more colours later in the year but it all depends on how we can manage our growing collection as we have so many colours across so many sizes and a growing number of shapes...

To give you an idea, 1 dress in 4 sizes and 2 lengths means 8 variants per colour.....

This is how the pre-order will work: please place your order as per usual. When we return from Wonderwool, we will combine all orders and do a production run in the 2 fabrics offered. The dresses will be sent out on a "first-come-first-served" basis. You will receive your dress by the end of May latest but I will send them out as fast as they are made, i.e. you will literally receive them "hot off the press"!

In terms of sizing, please use the following info as your guideline: order your usual Layercake size (0, 1, 2, or 3). Then consider the 2 lengths:
- the Regular dress is 44.5in (113cm) in length, measured from the shoulder straight down
- the Long dress is 50in (127cm) in length, measured from the shoulder straight down

For those of you new to Layercake sizes, please visit the sizing page and/or use the following guide; 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)

What does this mean? For frames of 5'6" and up, you have the choice of either length, with the Long variant hitting you at your ankle and the Regular variant hitting you mid-calf. For frames of 5'5" and below, automatically choose the Regular length. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Note: at this stage, we will not do any bespoke fits for the Dress. We may be able to accommodate those in the future but during the launch you can only choose from the 8 size variants offered.
