How to “bustle” wedding dress train?

SuwanneeBabe | Posted in General Sewing Info on

Can anyone help?   How do I “bustle” a ready-made wedding dress train for after the wedding comfort at the reception?   I have no experience with wedding dress or formal dress sewing!   Thanks for any suggestions!

    A good reference is Singer's book Sewing for Special Occasions (it has detailed instructions for all the little details in making a bridal gown, including 2 types of bustling).

    Or Check out this site.

    Hope that helps. Good luck.

      Thanks, Jean!   I've read the paragraphs on Bustles  at

      and look forward to reading more from that site.   I'll pick up the Singer book at the Library this afternoon.    Appreciate your quick response!
