Details

The Dress has a similar silhouette to the Smock, with a slight balloon-shape to the skirt. Like most Layercakes, the Dress has large pockets and is made of gorgeous Wool that is woven here in the UK. The depth of the armholes allows you to wear the Dress either as an over-piece or by itself.

For our extra-sturdy Linen version, see HERE.

For our Summer-version in a medium-weight linen, see HERE.

The dress comes in two lengths (details in the size guide below). For frames of 5'6" and up, you have the choice of either length, with the Long variant hitting you at your ankle and the Regular variant hitting you mid-calf. For frames of 5'5" and below, automatically choose the Regular length. Please contact me if you have any questions.

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)
PLEASE NOTE: standard-sized made to order garments CAN be returned for a refund!

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.

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.

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.

Wool Care & Washing Instructions
Note: all Layercakes have washing labels sewn into them, usually in the left side-seam. We recommend washing wool as little as possible. Wool Layercakes tend not to be worn next to the skin and can be kept going for a long time before a wash is really necessary. Any spills etc. can most easily be removed by spot-cleaning with some water and a cloth.

When it is time to wash, we recommend hand-washing. Wool cycles of different washing machines vary, so while you know your washing machine best, if in doubt stick to hand-washing. There are a number of hand-washing detergent brands (we sell Soak) that can be added to the water, add the garment, wet it thoroughly and then just let it sit. Take the garment out of the water, no rinse necessary, and put it dripping wet in the washing machine for a short spin cycle and hang to dry. Wool Layercakes can also be dry-cleaned.

Our Wool
We produce wool Layercakes in smaller quantities compared to linen, so we rarely have fabric custom-woven for us. The rest of our wool fabrics have been woven in the UK by other manufacturers, but become surplus to their production needs. This gives small businesses like The Slow Wardrobe access to high-quality, often custom-woven wool fabrics in small quantities.
