Another Wedding Dress

A bustle, that is!! This beautiful bride asked for help with her loooooong bridal train.



Hi Margie!!! Tell "Mr. T" thanks for loaning you to me all those hours we worked on this project.








Margie did lots of research online and came up with this idea, below.

We covered some buttons we got in the notions section at JoAnn's.
I crocheted these loops with heavy cotton thread.
And reinforced the loops underneath, so they wouldn't tear the netting.





This was a lot of fabric to manage, but we were so happy our plan worked. Thanks, sweet friend, for helping me!!! I couldn't have done it without you.

Now, where were you when I needed you nearly 25 years ago...that idea would have been very useful!!!! what a beautifull dress & I think I like the 'bustled' look even more than the train, which is really saying something!! You are one multi skilled lady!! :)
