I’m not sure what it is called but I know what you’re talking about and think it will work.  I’d just explain it to your tailor when the dress comes in and he’ll know what you’re talking about.

I had mine done like that, it was my favorite out of all the options….

DB calls it a ‘ballroom bustle”. My skirt was asymmetrical also, and it wasn’t a problem at all. Basically, she sewed buttons on the inside in the shape of an upside-down “U” so the longest part was buttoned closest to my butt. Hope that makes sense!

@nachos: Hum … if you google “ballroom bustle” that isn’t the type of bustle that comes up at all!  But what you had done seems to be exactly what the OP is wanting!

@CorgiTales: Haha!  Yeah – that would probably work better than the “ridiculous hand gestures and lots of “ya know?”s” Wink

I didn’t know what it was called, but I described that to my alterations lady and she was able to make it!  It looks great too!  Like the train just disappeared – no waterfall of fabric from this bride’s behind!

@Mrs.KMM: Not sure why the seamstress called it that, she must have had her bustles names confused!

@CorgiTales: I have more pictures of it bustled if you need them, just let me know 🙂

Ooo!  I like this!  I too have a dress similar to what you’re wearing and have been wondering about the bustle.  When I bought the dress, the gal mentioned that some people actually bustle it off to the side since that’s the direction the dress goes.  I’m not sure about that though.  I might be more interested in this ballroom bustle idea.

yeah I just describe mine to my seamstress a well.  First she was going to give me a french bustle but then I said the sale lady said it can go under and she was like ok.

I never feel about funny about looking stupid or asking lots of questions.  I always just make it sound like I am bowing down to my seamstresses (or whatever, I do this with everything I don’t know a lot about) and her superior knowledge.

Check out this thread that calls it a “train flip”… It’s what I’ll be getting for my dress!
