You really want to be dragging around a foot (or more!) of fabric on the ground for 12+ hours? What about dancing?

A simple 1 or 3 point over or under bustle shouldn’t be too much of a fuss. and i would think 7 weeks is plenty of time, unless your dress has tons of detail/lace/beadwork.

I had a sweep train, and it was barely 6 inches long… tiny tiny, but it was perfect for me.

I had a really simple underbustle.  My seamstress sewed two pieces of ribbon the same distance apart as the length of the final train after alterations.  I tied the ribbons together into a knot and voila!!  I could do my own bustle!
