val6581 :  I actually had my first fitting a few weeks ago and my seamstress nailed it with the bustle. I love the pleated look so much more than the ruffle butt lol. This is a pic of it just pinned so you get the idea. It should be much neater when it’s finished.

val6581 :  I do not. I remember saying she would color code the hooks so it was easy to do but not how many. I should be going back for my second fitting the first week or march so I can ask?

val6581 :  The short answer- no.

The dress on the left is more fit and flare than A-line. Although it is big on you, it is supposed to be tailored in at the hips and then flare out. If you add crinoline under that, it would be like putting tulle under a pencil skirt (at your hips, that is). It won’t lay right.

Hope that makes sense. I’m a bridal consultant lol.

My dress was an A line, aeveral size larger than me. The seasmatress was able to vompletely change it into a ballgown. I also had a big peitocoat under it.

 

im gonna post a picture of the dress in the model and pne of me with my dress so you can ser

 

 

 

 

 

I dont know if found a pic where you can really see how poofy and ballgown-insh it turned out

 

look at this one with the bustle

 

 

And this is the skirt I wore under it, ot was the biggest pne I found on the Rosa Clara boutique

 

 

The seasmatress did an amazing job, my dress was a size 14 and she was able to change it into some tiny size, giving me the shape I love without losing any of the lace

 

good luck!! I hope this was useful!
