Sizing notes: this dress has stretch and runs large, so if you’re in between sizes, size down. The skirt of the dress is very roomy for hips/bum, so shop your bust size, then be sure to check you’re happy with the sleeve and dress lengths. All these details and notes are in our size guide.
This is what customers have to say about this dress:
I love how Lucy layers makes me feel. The quality and workmanship is evident as soon as you unpack the beautifully styled dress. The fall of the skirt and the design of the pockets or speak to the skill and dedication that goes into making this wonderful garment.
Love this dress so much I washed it after wearing it one day so I could wear it the next! I read all the notes Belinda had made on the dress size and took her recommendation to go down a size as it runs large. It fits perfectly and it is just lovely to wear. Perfect spring dress ❤️

All measurements allow for ease. This is the extra room we need to move comfortably in clothing. So, just find the measurements closest to yours.
NB The Lucy Layers Dress is most fitted around the bust. Therefore first select a size that fits you there. The layers and gathering make it roomy in the hips and waist. Use the measurements above as a gauge of how the dress sits well. For example, if you have a 160cm hip measurement you could still wear the size 20 (because of the generous gathering in the layers) but it might not sit as well on you as the size 22 will.
We measured the finished (and washed) garments to make our size charts. We don’t just measure our patterns and hope for the best.
Every garment style has its own size chart. There is a link in the main product description. The size chart also includes pics of other women wearing our products and their measurements and size choices.
What part of my body should I be measuring?
See our how-to advice in the FAQ section. How do I Get the Best Fit?
What about Shrinkage?
It’s so disappointing when a new garment shrinks after its first wash.
That’s why we go the extra step. All garments are washed, dried and pressed after they're made. What you try on the first time, is the same size it will be after a wash.
What if it doesn’t fit or I need to return it?
You may qualify for a free or discounted return - see our Returns and Exchanges Policy for more info.
