I have seen some bustles that drag a little on the floor, but overall I think it should be off the ground. If that’s what you want tell the seamstress.

You’re right – when your dress is bustled it shouldn’t drag. Can you try tying the ties tighter?

Try tying the bows as tightly as you can. A good bustle should make your hem just barely touch the ground.

Also, did you try your dress on with your shoes? Your seamstress probably did your fitting with your shoes on in order to get the proper hem, so if you pop your shoes on it’ll probably be the right length.
