After months of waiting, my dress is here! I had my first fitting this morning. They are going to take in the bust area because I am lacking in that area. :O It is missing a strap right now and they are trying to locate it. Maggie must have forgotten to send the strap.
I have a second fitting this Saturday, they are going to hem the bottom and do the bustle. I originally wanted my bustle to be like this one in the post; http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/08/25/ballroom-bustle-train-flip-how-to/#more-159075 but there are too many points. The lady suggested a french bustle. Any other suggestions or pictures of your bustles?

why are you saying there are too many points on that bustle? did the seamstress tell you that, or are you just worried about actually being able to bustle it? if it’s the former, you might want a second opinion; if the latter, take a couple bms to the fitting so they can get a tutorial.

Thank you Eloping!
I haven’t asked yet because 1, I don’t want to overwhelm the seamstress especially because my mom has been driving them crazy about her dress. 2, my bm’s would have absolutely no idea on how to bustle it and I don’t want to bother them anyways. They are my sisters and they don’t like doing “girly” stuff. Basically, I am chosing to keep it more simple.

I saw this from another post from a Bee. I think this bustle for the Fiorella is amazing because it tucks the train underneath the gathering of faberic at the back.

Yes, I saw that bustle the other day. It is beautiful. I just don’t want a big poofy bustle and this one looks perfect.

Don’t feel bad about the bust not fitting! I really think they design the dresses for barbie-doll proportions (tall, big bust, small waist). When my dress came in the waist fit perfectly but the bust was too big and it was way too long.
