LOVE your dress!!!! 


For a PICK-UP BUSTLE, http://www.ehow.com/how_12055148_make-pickup-bustle.html


and below


LOVE your dress For photo 3460074-1  The Pick-up Bustle can be designed in either the French or Ballroom styles and is used for gowns that are slimmer in the hips and shorter in the train. The train is lifted in only one pick-up point to be secured to the back of the gown at only one anchor point. A simplistic style that is not always easy to achieve properly for when you have only one point to secure the whole back of the gown, it can be tricky to find just the right places to position them.


 


FRENCH OR UNDER BUSTLE:


LOVE your dress For photo 3460074-2  The French Bustle, or Underbustle is best used for gowns that are very full in the hip area and have long trains. This style of bustle employs ribbons sewn at the anchor and pick-up points on the underside of the train and waist area that are then tied together to rig the bustle. The resulting flounce of fabric can often be dramatic in design or simply draping depending on the type and fullness of fabric in the train.


 


BALLROOM OR OVERBUSTLE:


LOVE your dress For photo 3460074-3


Ballroom Bustle is my term for what most people call an Overbustle. The bustle is formed by lifting the fabric of the train and securing it to the back of the bodice by the use of thread loops for the pick-up points and hooks or buttons for the anchor points. This style of bustle is used for gowns with long trains and is best designed when there is some kind of decorative item at the back of the gown to hide the hooks, like a large bow or lace overlay.


 


For your dress, I would suggest trying the Ballroom bustle and seeing how it comes out.  The other two would work also, but honestly, I think I would try all three to see which one YOU like the best.  : )
