I was looking at a website that sells Bustle Clips… i’m assuming you use them to bustle your dress? How do you use it? Does this mean it can substitute the cost of getting it altered or is it just a decorative thing to put on your dress where it is bustled?

It looks like they are pins. I’m not sure I would want to bustle my dress with pins – as if they get put in wrong, you could end up damaging it. Plus you will probably find that you need to bustle and un-bustle your dress more than once on the day of – for the photography – and it’s just so much easier when you’re tying ribbons or slipping loops over buttons that are already there. I would think you would still have to mark where the pins would go, or every time your bustle will be different.
If you just use it as a decorative thing, maybe to cover the tie or ribbon, then you still have to worry about putting them in and taking them out more than once – but if that’s not an issue, I’m sure they are pretty. The ones that I was were $150 – $200 a set, so they’re certainly not a cheap alternative to a seamstress – all my alterations including the bustle cost less than that.
