this is my dress… it is like yours, but my tule is pleated which is more difficult than non pleated.  i was just at the seamstress yesterday with a grand total of $655 that i had to pay so far. i’m pissed off about that… but i wish i could show you how she is doing the bustle. it looked really natural like my dress wasn’t even a train.  there are going to be 6 bustles that are going to be tucked in where the mermaid starts on my dress. and in the end it just looks like it’s how the dress is suppose to be… lookes shorter with no train. i can totally see it being done to yours. how about a french bustle too??

I looked for the before pictures but can’t find, it’s a cross between the the above two dresses but here is the after affect along with bustling the last of the three different layers I mentioned in previous post.  There are 13 layers of tulle!  The top layer is buttoned in three places.  Hope it helps.

you can get a wrist loop, but then can be a bit tiring and annoying from what I’ve heard

Are there any instuctions on how to bustle a Galia Lahav Tony dress with a very long train?  Is a five point or eight point bustle best?  and how is it best completd?  thank you!
