Rachel – Custom Bolero Jacket

As a laid-back and low-frills person, Rachel seeked out simple, yet elegant wedding solutions that also reflected her personal environmental and social consciousness. She found a cotton eco-conscious dress on Etsy from South American designer Zelaya. To soften and tailor the dress to Rachel, we garment washed it and added darts for shaping. We also created custom straps, and added a textured green suede trim at the empire waistline for a little colour accent.

To cover her shoulders and dress up the look slightly, we designed a custom bolero jacket in silk shantung lined in soft cotton voile.

Rachel & Tyler were married on the coast at Old Orchard Beach, Maine.
