The designer of this gown decided to make the lace top layer much longer than the lining layer. It created an interesting situation for bustling.
I rigged the lining layer to bustle in a one point Ballroom pick-up using a white hook and eye.
The lace top layer is bustled with a 6 point French Bustle. The effect shows off the lace very nicely and the bride loved it.
This gown is bustled mostly with a Train Flip, but the lower flowers ended up under the flip, so I started designing the bustle over again
by first french bustling the top flower so that it brought up both flowers enough that the lower on didn't;t get caught under the Flip.
It worked well and the bride was very happy.
