Luxury duchess satin bolero and button back alteration
Carolynne bought her wedding dress from a bridal shop along with some extra matching silk in order to have a matching bolero made.
The bolero is made in ivory silk with a shaped collar coming up to the neck at the back and cut away over the front. The sleeves are three quarter length. All the edges are finished with piping for a crisp, clean line.

Carolynne bought her wedding dress from a bridal shop along with some extra matching silk in order to have covered buttons added all down the back centre seam. I have a traditional button covering machine so every button is perfect, covered in your own choice of fabric. We applied the buttons at 2 per inch to Carolynne’s dress.
