- Wedding: July 2009
Hello Hive! I am wearing the Maggie Sottaro Ireland dress to my wedding in three weeks. Figuring out a bustle for the this style was a long process of trial and error, and there is not much info out there about this style since it is fairly new. I thought I would post the solution my wonderful alterations woman and I came up with to help out any brides who have this or a similar dress.
We went through three bustle designs before we found one I was happy with. I was very concerned with the hooks showing through the chiffon, so I wanted them near the bottom of the top layer so they would not be as visible.
We detached the chiffon layer from the satin underskirt, and will be bustling the pieces seperatly. The chiffon snaps to the satin for the ceremony, and is unsnapped to be bustled. The satin underskirt we simply turn under and hook.
