Details

The Smock is an over-piece with a great curvy silhouette that can be thrown over pretty much any outfit. You know when you wear one of these that they are extremely comfortable (loose and relaxed), practical (pocketses!!!) and that you will love what you see when you catch your reflection in a mirror or window. Not to mention the seemingly never-ending stream of compliments you get wearing a Layercake Smock (read the reviews if you want to know what I mean!).

This is the medium-weight linen used for the Tulip Summer Dress. We received specific request for these light colours in Smocks and Tabards so here they are! Have a look at the Summer Tabard, HERE.

Length from shoulder (size 2): 90 cm (36 in) front and back, dipping to 115 cm (45 in) at the sides – slightly shorter in the smaller sizes.

Size 3 Petite: available both in the Smock as well as the Tabard shape for size 3's of 5'4" or less.

Key features:

  • made from top quality custom-woven 100% linen
  • pre-washed and pre-shrunk, so they can be thrown in the washing machine and dryer, getting only better over time
  • nice big pockets on both sides
  • in a range of colours making them versatile and suitable for wide range of occasions
  • made for a range of different shapes and sizes
  • their bell-shape creates a very flattering, flow-y silhouette.

    Layercake Sizes
    Layercake follows a different sizing system, recognising that the traditional system of "ladies dress- sizes" does not account for body shape and height. Read more about the background to this HERE.

    Apron:
    The Apron sizing is close to our Smocks and Tabards (0, 1, 2 and 3) so if you know your Smock/Tabard size then choose the corresponding Apron size. However, the Apron shape is more open around the bust, so there is some more flexibility if you prefer to wear it more or less fitted.

    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.

    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.
