I purchased Eden Bridals GL024 as my wedding gown and I was wondering if anybody knew how I could bustle a gown like this. It has a very long train of sheer fabric with lace applique and now I’m getting nervous. There are not many appliques to hide the hooks behind. I have sewing experience (theater costumes), but I never had to bustle anything in this material or style before. Advice would be appreciated.
I could also post pictures of me in it if it would help, but I thought the model pictures showed the train and silhouette best (the sample I tried on was 2 sizes too small)

My dress had a lace overlay. The alterations lady basically did a one-point bustle on it twice, once for the bottom layer and once for the overlay. Two separate bustles. She used clear buttons. I thought it would show, but I swear you couldn’t tell at all. We had trouble finding the button to bustle it after the ceremony.

Following to see what responses- my dress has a sheer, lace train as well

@ColoroftheSky: Do you have any pictures? I’d love to see it.
My dress has just barely a sweep train for the satin layer so I’m planning on leaving it as is and just bustling the lace

My dress has a lace overlay with a long train. Here’s my pictures of the dress with the train down and then it bustled. 🙂
Lots of lace!
And here it is bustled:
There’s a bustle underneath the lace overlay and then there’s the three button one picking up all that lace. She did it this way instead of a french bustle (I think that’s what it’s called) so you wouldn’t lose seeing all the lace details. 🙂
Hope this helps!
