A Tufted Bustle

This Bride had lot of ideas to make this dress uniquely hers. We had a champagne colored sash and used lace from her grandmother's and mother's wedding gowns to create accent and a focal point on the front of this taffeta tufted gown.

The back of this dress had pick ups spread through out the trane. I used the French Bustle method to create an elegant and princess look for this bride. I used 5 bustle points to create the finished look. The Champagne colored sash is secured by two tiny doll buttons and crocheted loops that were created on the back side of the sash to keep it in place.
