What if you underbustled the lining layer, and then did an over bustle for the overlay so you don’t lose the detail? I love how flared out dresses look with underbustles. I think they’re a perfect match.

I would take the two layers and bustle them seperately. I’d do an under bustle or french bustle on the bottom layer and a “pick up bustle on the top layer to preserve the beautiful lace edging.

This is a very helpful website.

Here are some more bustle photos… there is 1 with a “single french bustle” on a dress that is kinda similar to yours. However, it looks like their under-solid layer doesnt have a train, only the sheer layer does.


A Triple Traditional might be pretty for your dress.
