2
Measure the trainTo add an over bustle, start by
measuring the back seam of the dresss train from
the waistline seam to the floor and again from
the edge of the train to the base of the
dress.Mark the place between these two distances
with a pin.
3
Pin The Waistline Seam- Lift the center back
seam where you made the pin mark and position it
so it is flush against the center of the
waistline, at the base of the bodice. Adjust the
positioning so the train is ½ ¾ (1.3 2 cm)
off the floor. Attach the train to the seam using
a pin.
4
Fold and pin the train. Lift the dresss train
off the floor, and pin it so the sides of the
train are positioned ½ to ¾ (1.3 2 cm) off
the floor and secured to the sides of the dresss
back seam.
  • 1) Fold and pin the train to lift any remaining
    train off the floor.2) If the train is too long
    or heavy, redistribute the already existing folds
    into two smaller folds.3) When the folds are
    securely pinned, release the bustle and remove
    the pins.

5
Attach the buttons or hooks. In order to secure
the dress on the day of the wedding, the bustle
will need to be connected to the dress using
either buttons or hooks. Sew these on wherever
you made pin marks along the waistline.
  • 1) Make sure to stitch securely you dont want
    the bustle coming undone.2) If the buttons or
    hooks need additional reinforcement, attach a
    small piece of interfacing under each one.

6
Bustle the dressOnce the loops have been added
to the dress, bustle the train by fastening the
loops to the buttons or hooks. Adjust the folds
of fabric on the train to create a fuller and
more voluminous bustle.If you dont like the
look of the exposed buttons or hooks, you can
hand-sew lace appliqués on top of the buttons or
hooks to conceal them.Be sure to stock up on
safety pins. American bustles are not as strong
as French bustles and there's a chance that the
bustle may break over the course of the evening.
