Details

This is the first ever playsuit you will wear that looks fabulous, feels like the most comfortable piece of clothing you have ever worn and you don't have to take it off when you go to the loo! AND it looks great regardless of age, shape and size of the wearer. Honestly, what's not to like?

You throw it on like a dress, then close it with a clever zip AT THE BOTTOM!

Shown here are the Playsuits in our heavier weight linen. We also make them in a medium-weight linen (see HERE) and in Organic Cotton Jersey (find those HERE).

It features our signature big pockets and the same slight balloon shape you find in a number of Layercake designs (Smock, Tulip Dress, Love Dress). It is a shape that looks great and  gives you lots of room to move, allowing your body to relax rather than having to prop yourself up to make your clothes look good.

Available in the usual 4 Layercake sizes but also in 3 different lengths to allow for both big differences in size as well as height. You can find the Tall Playsuits HERE.

A note about lengths
When we offer garments in more than one length, we do not just add or take away some fabric at the bottom of the garment. We change the proportions of the garment throughout. So a shorter version will suit a shorter frame at every point, same for a longer one. Example: if you usually order a regular length Playsuit and would like to try the Petite version for a cropped look, then it will fit you fine but you will notice that e.g. the pockets will be positioned higher on your hips.

    “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.

    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.

    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.
