American Bustle diy

Has anyone done an American bustle themselves instead of paying to get it done? I already have a ton of other alterations I need done, to the point where it's going to cost more than the dress! If you have any tips or have found videos on how to do it yourself please let me know! Thanks in advance!!

    Have you seen an itemized quote for you full set of alterations? I don’t remember the bustle piece being very expensive, so to me it seems like a bit more trouble than it’s worth to save a small amount of money. Plus you want a solid bustle so you’re not dragging your train around all night!

    Yup, my alterations ended up being more than double the price of my dress! 😱

    My genius sister, who went to school for fashion design; helped me and all she used was one of those huge binder clips!
