"Alina" embroidered bustier dress indigo blue

The “Alina” bustier dress is a piece of Norwegian inspiration, more precisely of a unique kind of “Bunad” from Bergen. Usually composed of several elements, there is a “Bunad” which unites bustier and skirt, thus forming a practical and comfortable dress. We had the pleasure of discovering this traditional costume during a trip to Bergen (South-West Norway).

Made of a heavy and firm cotton canvas, the dress has a bustier with a low neckline that reaches the chest in the middle, to harmoniously match all body shapes, especially bigger chests. It sports a lacing that echoes the original “Bunad” corset.

You will find on the straps, the front sides, and the bottom of the dress pretty bird embroidery - a nod to the joyful patterns found on the traditional "Bunad". The dress closes with a zipper located on the side and has pockets.

Last little note: know that we designed "Alina" in three colors, but indigo blue is the closest shade to the traditional color in the region of Bergen!
