Personally I think the back looks great in the second picture.  If you’re really worried about the tulle hanging out still, maybe you could have it shorten a bit so it won’t drag?  Or I’d think you’d be about to bustle that up better as well.

If you really don’t like it bustled as is, ask the seamstress if there are any other types of bustles that could work with your dress (may not be as easy and will cost you more to have put in but could give you a look you like better).  Any seamstress worth your business should be able to show you multiple options (even if they have a professional opinion as to what would work best).

I don’t know.. I kind of like your “poofs”.  Your dress is already so fun with all that tulle.  How does the dress “move” once all that tulle is tucked up?  Does it look funny?

Maybe you could keep the tulle on there and just cut it off when you are ready to bustle it so you still have the long tulle for the ceremony.

I like the french bustle on your dress. I don’t see what you are seeing about the jutting out at the knee. I think it just looks like you are wearing a gown, and it actually does look very ball-gownish to me even though it is kind of fit and flare.
