Layercake Linen Wrap DressRegular price $353.00
Layercake sizes run from 0 - UK8-12 to 3 - UK 22-26 (0-3 = US6-22)
So PLEASE check your measurements against our sizes before you order.
The Wrap Dress shares the shape and measurements of its sleeves and chest circumference with the Love Dress but flares out with a generous gathered skirt. Like most Layercakes, the Wrap Dress has large pockets but they are set into the side seams as it can be worn with either side as its front**, as well as worn open as a Duster. It is made of our usual high-quality medium-weight linen that ages beautifully and will serve you for years. The shape of the sleeves allows you to wear the Wrap Dress as an over-piece or by itself as a Dress.
** The Magpie Stripe Dress is shown worn both ways, i.e. with the wrap and ties in front and reversed, with the wrap worn on the back.
To find out more about how the Wrap Dress looks when worn by itself or with other Layercakes, watch Eps. 74 and 75 of the Slow Wardrobe podcast on YouTube.
A note about sizes and length
If you are on the cusp between Layercake sizes, then size DOWN for the Wrap Dress. Because the wrapped panels reach from one side seam to the other, it is very easy to wear the dress with slightly more width across your chest. Together with the generous Dolman sleeves, you may find that sizing down still gives you plenty of fabric to play with. When in doubt, give me a shout and I'll be happy to advise!
The Wrap Dress measures 43 in long in the front (measured from the shoulder down) and 47 in the back. These measurements are chosen so that all customers can wear the Wrap Dress. However, if this length does not work for you, please get in touch and we will try to accommodate your wishes.
