Sorry that you weren’t happy with the bustle.  Sounds like they did not think through it very well.  I would recommend getting a second opinion or exploring some other options.  I had a very similar style tulle dress and had a multi-point bustle.  I was also trying to avoid the “pooping tulle” look (as my husband called it).

And the bustle:

@TheFairyPanda:  i would get a second opinion. i feel like there must be something they can do. Would you consider a different type of bustle?

@SunnySquirrel:  Hahaha that’s actually what my sister calls it! And I was going to suggest the same kind of bustle.

@TheFairyPanda:  OP, your gown is amazing (simply TDF), and I’m really sorry you have to deal with all of this unneeded stress. I agree with the PP who suggested getting a second opinon. Take your dress to a completely different seamstress and tell her your issue/concerns to see if there is an easy cost-effective way to fix this clumping. 


If she doesn’t have an easy solution, then you might have to have her redo the bustle entirely. A ballroom bustle is lovely. and I really hope this can be fixed. Here are some threads on bustling huge tulle trains that might help you, as well:

DB has some great dresses, but a lot of people have not-as-great things to say about the DB alterations department. I would absolutely get a second opinion before completely changing your vision.

@TheFairyPanda:  Do you think you could post a picture of dress bustle?. I bought the same dress and I would love to see how your bustle turned out. I too am trying to avoid the “poopy” dress look πŸ™‚
