Couture Bridal Gowns "Innes"

soft grey-blue silk corset and bolero jacket, with tartan trims and contrasting collar matching cropped bolero jacket with high collar, corset, skirt and removeable train with tartan contrast

Most clients have a two-piece order of corset and skirt; some have a four-piece outfit! This commission included a long-line, waist-cinching corset, a fish-tail skirt, a removeable (tartan lined) train and a cropped bolero-style jacket.

The four seperate parts to this order resulted in an ultra-flexible outfit, whatever the weather/ temperature/ venue. The removeable tartan-lined train and bolero jacket enabled the bride to change her look entirely from ceremony to reception. Shoes were made to match in the blue silk.

See "Flower of Scotland" in the Corset and Contemporary categories on the menu for a similar commission incorporating corset, butterflies and silk tartan trims.
