Yeah, this seamstress said something about it sitting flatter when it was actually sewed, but I honestly don’t think that is going to help the uglitude. I’m currently trying my darndest to dig up the original seamstress.

I might suggest doing a ballgown bustle. I originally wanted a french but it didn’t look right with my gown either, but the ballgown bustle makes it look like there’s no bustle at all! Just looks like the same dress but shorter. Here’s a pic of my bustle. Don’t know if this is what you’re looking for, but thought I’d suggest a different option. Hope it helps 🙂

First, your dress is gorgeous. Second, I echo what many of the PPs said. Your seamstress should be able to work with you, although they know best in many circumstances, this sounds like it might not be one of them. Find another seamstress! Bet you can find some good recommendations from Boston bees on here.
