My sister wore an Amsale that had a lace overlay — that part got a one point over bustle — and then the fabric under this part was done up in a three point UNDER bustle.  It looked great!

I usually like the French bustle better, but for your dress with the lace detail at the bottom, I think a simple over bustlle would be best.

Hmmm, I do have a picture, but I’m not that familiar with posting on images on the boards.  Do you have an email address I can send it to?  Feel free to PM me with that info!

hm… what about gathering another layer of the fabric on top and bringing it under so it’s more of a V shape? Like add an attachment in the middle to bring it up even more underneath. Probably totally doesnt make sense- sorry!

@bookgirlbride      Mine is also lace overlay with satin underneath – i haven’t talked to the seamstress yet, but i’ve been wondering if there is any way to do the bustle where the lace is either pulled up above or hidden behind and the bustle is then done with the satin….to change up the look a little bit from all lace to satin….  i’m sure that is clear as mud   hehe  Here’s the back of my dress….what do you think?

 

@bruschetta     Is that kind of what you were talking about??  LOL

I didn’t want a french bustle because I have such beautiful lacing and detail on the back of my dress but the top layer of my dress is stitched to all the other layers of tulle.  I have the Maggie Milana and the top layer of the dress used to not be attached and the top layer could be lifted but not anymore.  So unless I want a ten pound horse tail on my butt I am going with the French Bustle.  But at least I can get jiggy with it in my dress!
