Many modern trains are offering a fresh new look of multi-length trains. The trains are different lengths and are often cut differently as well. This presents the need to #bustle in layers. This video will show you one way to bustle. The options are endless, really. This video will also help beginner bustlers to see a good mix of the #sewingtechniques that bridal seamsters use.

Thank you so much for making these videos. Please show us how to make gathered skirts. I’m having trouble patterning and assembling a classic gathered skirt it look so simple but it’s actually extremely hard.
I appreciate your knowledge and sharing these tips! For me, many of these topics help reaffirm how I approach a gown and how I strive to improve my seamstress skills. Thank you!
Thank you for the idea of chalk paint. For prom dresses I use nail polish, but chalk paint is great for white wedding gowns!
I love the way u explain everything. I learned a lot from you thank you so much .
Thank you for watching ❤
God bless you…thanks so much for sharing all your knowledge on my way to bustle my daughters full gown bridal gown
First off: Great video. I learned a lot.
Second: Your watch band!!!! I need this in my life. Please share where you found it. It’s amazing. 😍
It is linked to in the description below the video. It’s a diy. 🙂
Well, you did it again. Working on a train like this and cleared up that, yes, I did do it like you 😁, and learned about the snaps 🤦🏼♀️thanks again! You rule.
Thanks for watching! 🙂
Great technique. Helpful! THANK YOU!! 💗
Love your technique with the snaps! I usually bustle the satin layers tucking them under to create a smoother satin layer, up high if that makes sense instead of French bustling the satin layer.
Great video. Thanks for the clear instructions!
thank you for this video! Would love to see how you measure out the points for the bustle after it’s draped.
I literally just pick it up different ways and pick the prettiest, most functional way.
Thanks so much! Two days before my daughter’s wedding I realized her dress didn’t come with a bustle! It’s an illusion gown, too. I was able to do the bustle using your instructions, even though I’ve never done one before.
Nice! ❤❤ Please share this on social media! It means the world to me. ❤❤
Excellent video! Very informative and the illustrations were very helpful!
Hi , your videos have given me the knowledge to be confident when working on bridal dresses. Thank you. I love the large hooks I spray paint them with KRYLON FUSION MATTE WHITE. It hasn’t scratched off
Thank you so much!
Can you do a video on how you bustle a cascading ruffle wedding dress?
I’m sorry, but I can’t. The bustle is a personal thing. The choice is determined by many factors; the bride’s height, the environment she is having her reception in, how she wants it to perform, and her personal taste in how she wants it to look.
On the kind of dress you describe, some brides would pick a single American demi bustle, (one point on the outside.) Other brides would pick, possibly a triple french. There’s just no telling.
You have to pin it up for them a few different ways and let them pick. They’ll also want to walk around in it and see how it feels bustled.
Absolutely Beautiful. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Love your channel. 🙂
You do great work! Thanks for sharing. I believe that I bustled a similar dress awhile back and it took awhile to figure out. Thanks for shraing. Remember the Association of Sewing and Design Professionals is a great organization for those in our business.
Thanks! Lol, I’m actually extreeeemly introverted in forced social situations and therefore clubs, chapters, meetings, networking, etc are things that my worst nightmares are made of! But, someone else here in our community may appreciate the referral to a sewing association! 😀
Do you ever sew your hooks to the dress and the loops to the train? I’ve always done that when I do bustles, just wondering if you think there is a big difference…?
Do uou mean instead of snaps? No mam. Just snaps
I do it differently for each dress. I just do it the least noticeable way.
I usually saw my hook to the top of the skirt and loops to the bottom, but I guess its just a matter of taste.
I just finished bustling a gown almost exactly like the one you are working on. I love your idea of using the snaps. I will go and add them before my bride picks up her dress tomorrow!
Awww so glad I could help!! ❤❤
