So PLEASE check your measurements against our sizes before you order.

Details
We have taken the undulating hem of the Smock as the bottom of a simple bodice and attached a circle skirt to it, allowing it to drape the way our lovely linen does when given free rein. This dress swings and swoops and invites you to dance and twirl.

There is a choice of three cross-weaves, each with our Blush Pink as their base and teaming it with red (to create Raspberry), a soft yellow (to create Mango) and teal (to create Fittonia).

With close to 5m of fabric per dress, our limited edition fabric may run out faster than most. Available in our usual selection of four Layercake sizes.

I recommend you check the size information if you want to make sure the length of this dress works for you and do not hesitate to get in touch if in doubt!

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 do everything we can to be truly size-inclusive. We can highly individualise your garment, 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.

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.
