All About Bustles: 5 Point Pickup Bustle

And we are back with a new ‘All About Bustles’ Blog! Here we have a 5 Point Pickup Bustle on a gorgeous lace gown.

The pickup bustle can drastically vary in the number of points used. The number of points typically depends on the type of fabric and the length of the train. For this particular bustle, we used 5 points. 

The pickup bustle is created by taking fabric midway through the train, picking it up and securing it on the outside of the skirt. Points are created and fastened to securely attach the bustle.

We love using a pickup bustle for sheath silhouette wedding gowns. It also works great with column and trumpet silhouettes. When you work together with an experienced dressmaker, they will be sure to create the perfect and most flattering bustle for your particular gown.

Fun note! This bustle was created when we were upstairs in our first studio in the Makawao Plaza Building. We have since moved downstairs to a larger, more spacious studio. My, how we’ve grown! And our JOA team is growing too! We are grateful to Maui and the community for supporting our business these past few years. Thank you for helping our Atelier grow!
