I think you have a right to be upset if the dress isn’t altered the way you want it to be, especially since you are paying for it. If the dress really is loose in places where you think it could be taken in and still have room for sitting, dancing, etc, then I would go ahead and make your case known at the second fitting. Also, if you’re not sure if the alterations will work or not, then try to show her what it is you want by tucking the fabric, etc and asking her if that will work or what she would suggest otherwise so you can achieve the shape you want. I also would try not to worry too much about it until you get  to the next fitting and see what she has come up with… once the hem is shortened and the bra cups sewn in, the dress might fit differently and then you can get an idea of where you want to go from there.
