I have to share these with you ladies since my FI can't see them.
And with the french bustle:
It was quite an experience. The seamstress called the other seamstress in, and they both spoke to each other in Italian for a bit, while pointing to my bust and trying to figure out how to make it fit just right. I am glad for today, because at my first fitting (I bought the store sample and had to get it taken in a few sizes) she seemed short with me. But today she was extremely nice. I'm so excited!!
