Details

I have had requests for a more fitted Layercake. I loved the idea but at the same time wanted to ensure that even when offering a more fitted garment, it would serve ALL my Layercake customers. Which means it works on a very wide range of body shapes and sizes. It's taken a while but we cracked it, so here it is!

A bit about its 1st of July price increase: it takes 3.5m of fabric and 4 hrs to make one Wrap Skirt - and that is when it is part of a production run, when a batch of skirts can be made together to save costs. I priced the skirt before I had these numbers and seriously misjudged it, so the early adopters may rub their hands in glee, they got an incredible bargain! Naturally this would not be sustainable. The current price still isn't right but at least it is creeping closer to what it should be. Thank you for your understanding.

Introduced for the warmer months of the year in our medium weight linen, the back panels overlap from one side seam all the way to the other, so even in gale-force winds, you won't be left standing in our underwear :D
The other advantage of having the wrap panels in the back rather than the more often-seen front, is that a double panel in the front means a double layer of fabric covering your legs when you sit down; not the best idea during the warmer season!

The wide, sturdy waistband resembles an OBI belt: it doesn't collapse on itself and can be worn either loose or wrapped quite tightly if that gives you the look you are after. The flexibility of the waist measurement also means you can choose whether to wrap this skirt high up on your waist, or wear it lower down if that is your preferred look.

The pictures show a size 0 Skirt on a 28in waist and a size 2 on a 38in waist.

Finally, as with all of your Layercakes, I encourage you to combine this skirt with other Layercakes and/or other garments in your wardrobe. Do play to discover interesting and unexpected combinations and please share them!

    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.

    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.
