I was wondering if anyone knew how much an 8 tier bustle may run? I am going through an independant seamstress and when asked she said she couldn’t give me an accurate quote without seeing the dress first, which I figured. I am going in next week and was just curious if theres any ladies out there that got “complicated” bustles and how much it cost?

the lady i am going to told me that it would be around $50 for the french bustle. im not sure how many points, but my bottom half and train of the dress is a bit ruffly with tulle and lace

Mine cost $120.00 and it was very elaborate with a color coding system. My train was very long and heavy so I can’t imagine it costing much more than for any other dress.

@Treejewel19: Yours is the one that was my favorite from my other post! I will be showing yours (if you don’t mind) as my reference.
Thanks for sharing your cost, too! I was expecting a $300-$450 quote after seeing yours yesterday with how elaborate and beautiful it is! 🙂

The going rate from several seamstresses in my area is $10 to $20 per POINT.

Also, the seamstress said it was an extra $14 per additional bustle.
