Instructions for a French Bustle?

Yesterday I had my final fitting with "her" and the woman who dressed me was explaining to me as she was doing my bustle that mine is a French bustle ( it has 7 points and also ribbons underneath the dress).  I spoke to MOH last night and she doesn't know how to do this bustle.  If anyone can help me or are there instructions for this?


TIA.

I also have a 7 point french bustle.  It is super easy...I held up the back of my dress and she simply tied the ribbons together.  Make sure she can match all 7 with the right ribbon above it...my sister started on one end instead of in the middle...took her less than a minute!


Then it just needed to be fluffed a bit.

Okay, thanks because she went into this whole rambling session about how she is going to look it up online and all this craziness.  I started freaking out a little bit.  LOL.

Oh no!  I was worried about this too!  I took my sister with me so she could 'learn' it and kept asking her if she was sure she got it because I couldn't see what she was doing.  I think a double or triple french bustle would be a little more difficult though!

I so WISH my MOH lived in the same state as us, but she lives over 4 hours away, so I was on my own for both fittings.  However, my stepmom will be here on Tuesday night, and she knows a lot about sewing, etc. so I am sure she will be a HUGE help.

I'm having an 8 point french bustle and they write numbers on my ribbons...so my MOH will match ribbon "1" to ribbon "1".  They said they make them as user friendly as possible.

Good!  I'd take someone because you won't really be able to see what they are doing back there so it will be good to at least have 1 person who has seen it done.  But don't worry too much about it!

Mine are probably numbered too (haven't looked)...it may be common practice too make it easier.

My mom and MOH will be there, it will probably end up being my MOH and one of the wedding coordinators who do it.

@Athena, they will be with you at the fitting? I don't have anyone who will be with me to pick up the dress on monday, just Stepmom and she will be here late Tuesday night.  I'm sure everything will be fine with it.  I have faith in my girls.  : )
