My second fitting is tomorrow and we will be working on hemming and bustles.
My gown is somewhat similar in structure to this brides. Does this bustle type have a proper name?
I would like to tell the seamstress that I want my gown bustled like this.

I think that is what they call an Austrian bustle.
http://www.heritagegown.com/bustle/ It is the last one listed.
Hope this helps! 🙂

It looks as though there are three French bustles creating the cascading effect. The top looks connected to the bottom button, the next to the bottom of the first bustle etc.

I’m thinking the same thing. Like a triple french bustle.
I don’t envy the people who will have to get in there and do this.

I got my bustles!
It’s something super complicated. A french bustle with six connection points. All I can say is good luck and God speed to anyone who goes under there to connect those suckers. lol
My dress is massive. Here it is pinned up in the bustled style.
