@honig108:  Your dress is gorgeous! And your seamstress lied*. Your dress can most definitely be bustled. Only, the bustle will likely be expensive and/or time-consuming, since she might have to bustle each layer (or even combine bustle styles). There was another Bee with a similar issue, but her seamstress figured it out. 

Let me dig up that thread…

ETA: Here’s the thread w/photos (http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/tulle-bustle-problemhelp#axzz2TtSgU0RZ), and OP gives an update at the bottom.

*And by “lie,” I mean she either was not telling the truth or she meant that she doesn’t have the skill to bustle it herself (or she’s just not willing to put in that much effort).

@honig108:  Hi, welcome to the bee! I’m not a seamstress, however, I don’t see any reason why she couldn’t do three point American bustle on the dress. You’d have three small hoops towards the end of your train and three buttons up higher for them to attach to.

It can be bustled. She just doesn’t know how to do it, perhaps?


And, really, your dress probably already heads a “wrist strap.” It’s the loop used to hang the train when your dress in on a hanger. SMH. Sorry; just a pet peeve of mine.
