Separate from our other flowing dusters, we have two linens in festive patterns! Perfect for the colder, festive months, either as an extra layer to wear around the house or to finalise an outfit that is excellent for a winter walk! As we use pre-washed linen, you do not have to worry about machine washing in case of any errant mud ruining the duster!

As a true outerwear, the duster is phenomenal at finishing off your Layercake outfit or any other outfit for that matter! To contrast or to match, it offers universal compatibility and is a garment that you won’t be able to put down, thanks to its accommodating and loose shape.

The Duster is a one-size-fits-all Layercake. As with all our clothing, the design was based on fitting between 5 and 6 feet in height and between UK dress sizes 10 - 26. (EU 38 - 54, US 6 - 22). 

For our other Linen Dusters, we offer a Check design and a Herringbone design.

For some greater winter protection, see our unlined Wool Dusters!

    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.

    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.

    Find out more about our linen.

    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.
