Details
The Cap Top and Tunic are sleeveless versions of out Love Top and Tunic.
Please note: the pics are both for colour and length illustration purposes. Each colour is currently only shown in one length but available to order in both. The group picture shows the Tops & Tunics with their matching Slackers trousers, which are also on pre-order HERE.
The cap sleeve is cut in such a way that anyone conscious of the shape or size of their upper arms can wear this sleeve shape with confidence.
Like their 3/4 length sleeve counterparts, the Cap Top and Tunic are available in the usual 4 sizes that can both be worn by a range of different sized and shaped bodies, depending on the silhouette you like. Check the size guide for more details. The  sweeping necklines complement your existing Layercakes and a slight sweep to the hemlines (so it is a bit longer in the back) works with just about any garment you combine it with. Choose your regular Layercake size for perfect pairing with the rest of your wardrobe.

A note about fit
Because of the cap sleeves (the body panels and caps are cut in one piece), the Cap Top and Tunic are slightly more generous around the shoulders and bust. Therefore, if you are on the cusp of two Layercake sizes, you have the option to size down for a fitted look or size up for a looser fit, depending on your preference. Whichever you choose, they will fit under your existing Layercakes. 

“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.
Please note: we are out of stock of Pinstripe and Violet, so please refrain from choosing either of those. Bitter Lime is back in stock!

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 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 / Love Tunic / Vest
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).

NOTE: length measurements are taken from the top of the shoulder straight down to the bottom hem.

Custom sizes
We do everything we can to be truly size-inclusive. We can highly individualise your garment, 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.

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.
