Hi all! I finally took my dress in for alterations and I was planning on having a bustle put in. The seamstress told me since it’s a sheath gown and lace it would show if she put a button or hook and eye closure bustle in. She suggested just pinning it up with a large pin. Has anyone else been told this or is anyone else doing this? I found some pretty pins on Etsy, I’m thinking about getting one and having someone just pin it up for me. I’m definitely ok with saving the money but should I get a second opinion? Thoughts? TIA!
It doesn’t hurt to see if another seamstress knows a better way to do this! However I can see what the first seamstress was saying, there’s no way to put anything on your dress to attach the train to without it showing while it’s unbustled. But there might be another way!
I got a bustle between the lining of the dress and the outer part of the dress. The outside of the dress tucks underneath. I would definitely ask another seamstress to be sure!

Thanks Grace! I agree.. I think I’m gonna get another opinion. I’m just last minute so kinda freaking out about time (totally my own fault) but def doesn’t hurt to ask! Thanks again 😊💕
