I don’t know either, but I want one like that too! But with 3/4 sleeves. So I’ll keep you company on this thread πŸ˜€ hopefully someone know where to get these mysterious jacket-like devices

  wow those are really neat. Thats exactly what I have been looking for. I was starting to think I was going to settle for off the shoulder straps added to my gown..

I am having the same problem!! Many of these kinds of overlays seem to be attached to the dresses themselves and I would like to be able to remove it via button is the back! I am starting to think I will have to enlist my mother to make me one! I also don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on it.

@amyisnice: it reminds me of ivanka trumps wedding dress. which I love! (pictured below)

 

and the pretty back

when i started looking for dresses I wanted somethng like it but all the stores had was strapless dresses it seemed so I settled for the fact that I am going to have straps added. I had figured that something like Ivankas dress would be too hard and expensive to modify onto my dress so I was going to go with a off the shoulder strap sewed on.

what do you guys think I should do with the dress? here is a photo. ( i have already removed the flowers under the breast)

I have found a jacket similar to those on ebay. It comes with a dress but I just messaged the seller and asked if I could just purchase the jacket. I also asked for it to be shortened to the waist. I am hoping it all works out. It cost me $80 with shipping included. I will let you know once I get it. πŸ™‚

@amyisnice:

 

Call Abbey Bridal in Andover MA and describe it.  I tried on that EXACT bolero. It was 300 dollars. I have no idea who the designer is though  πŸ™
