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.

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.

Not bustled…

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

@ribbons:

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.
