Hi. I'm Tali Gallo here to talk about adding a bustle to your dress. A bustle is a must if you plan on dancing at your wedding. So I'm going to show you several different ways that you can add a bustle to your dress. One of the options is of course a traditional bustle, this is more the American bustle where your seamstress would actually take a hook and eye and hook it up in this manner or they could actually do a loop and then loop it around the button. And the underneath would get bustled up as well. Another way is of course a French way which is an under-tuck. So your seamstress would add ribbon underneath so it would force the dress to go up into an under-tuck bustle. And again, that's called the French bustle. And a third alternative would be to do a sweep. So this is only an option on some dresses. You would definitely want to check with your seamstress to make sure. So this sweep is going to pull it up to the side, so the under-tuck would also go up as well. So but there you go. This is a sweep look. Again it only works for certain dresses and definitely check with your seamstress to see what they recommend. Thank you.
