@alaskin17: Wow, your bustle is so unique and pretty! How does it work? I have a lace dress and would love to have something like this ๐Ÿ™‚

@HeyKaraoke:  Thanks! I definitely wanted something different and unique. It worked perfect for the train which was heavy from the material. It was really simple too~

It was set up by my samstress with ribbnons underneath. I can’t remember exactly how many points there were (I’ll have to take a peek) but it was easier than it looked. Since no one in my weddng party lives up here in Alaska and my wedding was in FL, my seamstress color coded the ribbons so when my mom in FL was doing the bustle, she knew what ribbons to tie together.

@TammieRei:  Right! And it still shows off the embroidery, It is a simple one point over bustle (I think that is what its called) It worries me a bit that it might not be enough but the seamstress changed it from a hook to a button, I’m not in love with it because now I have a button on my ass but oh well! It is much sturdier and odds are it won’t rip out when I’m dancing (I hope)
