I know the best person to ask is a seamstress, and I will…once I actually get my dress, lol. But it’s something that has been bugging me, does anyone know how you would bustle this skirt? Or will I be bustle-less?

My cousin had a big Full ball gown made of tulle and she had a bustle. I dont know how though…not a seamstress 🙂

Oooh, pretty dress!
The only problem with trying to bustle tulle is that it won’t lay nicely like the other fabrics. If you do bustle it, do an American style.

Do you have access to any pictures of it…?

I had an organza style dress and I had two bustles, one under, one over.

My skirt was tulle and lace and my seamstress was able to bustle it.

Mine was bustled – I don’t know the name of the bustle, but it was 3 hooks and then a tie underneath the skirt.

I think you could do a french bustle kind a fluffy & airy…then you dont’ have to worry about it looking perfect & it laying flat

I think it is a combo of an underbustle (aka french bustle —the tie underneath the skirt) and then an overbustle (aka american bustle —-hooks on outer of dress).
At least thats what my seamstress lady said she did for my dress.
