The Summer Tulip Dress is made using our medium-weight linen and is offered here in a range of popular and new linen colours, selected to complement your existing wardrobes. The dress has a slight balloon-shape to the skirt, and the arm holes are reduced in depth to create a neater fit, which allows you to wear the dress without a top underneath when ordering your usual Layercake size. Sizing up delivers a more familiar Layercake feel, giving you more play depending on what you prefer.

The heavier-linen Tulip Dress is available HERE .
Tulip Dresses in Wool can be found HERE.

The neater cut of the dress and the skirt's shaping gives the Summer Tulip a structured pear shaped silhouette. As with all our clothing, choosing different sizes means that any changes are kept in proportion. 

    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.

    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.
