 First off, that dress is beautiful!!!

I have NO earthly idea how this would be done, but is this a wow factor you’re looking for? https://sparklefriday.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/cathedral-train-1-6.jpg  

There’s ways to have it flush with the groud but basically tuck it under the dress, I can’t remember what it’s called.  My dress had ruffles so I took one ruffle and stuck it under another but it had that ballroom blended look. 

This was a cool site- maybe the Austrian?

Do you want to change the look/feel of the dress or just get it out of your way?

Mine was probably “technically” a french bustle but didn’t look it (because of the ruffles). It just looked like it was a shorter version of the same dress. 

I believe what I’m trying to show is called a hidden (aka nacho or train-flip). Research those words in these boards and you’ll see other styles. It gives a seemless bubble feel. You’ll probbaly trash the dress a bit more but nothing a general cleaning/preservation won’t fix.

My dress is a different Justin Alexander dress, but it’s also a lace mermaid/trumpet. I’m doing a 7 point bustle. I think it’s considered pick-up style, since it buttons visibly on top of the dress instead of being tucked under. It looked really pretty when pinned, and showed off all the lace details. I was originally going to ask for a french bustle that I’ve seen called “Waterfall Bustle” but my seamstress told me that the pick up style would work best and I just took her word for it.
