In addition to what you said is still to be done I’d also consider taking it in around your thighs to define the shape a bit more.  Once you are all done you should be good to go!  What kind of bustle are you thinking of getting?

emsie :  i think it still looks a bit bug in the hips/thighs. i think it needs to come in a bit more under your bum to enhance the silhouette

emsie :  Yes I think the one point bustle will look lovely for your dress.

The dress is taking shape but needs to be taken in more around the hips and thighs which will also help accentuate your bum. A one point bustle will look good on your dress.

Tighter arond the waist and  hips yes, but I don’t agree with tighter around the  thighs , I don’t think outlining the  bum is that dress’s basic intention /shape. 

Must you bustle it all? A wrist loop might look nice  – but I’m  biased , I really dislike  bustles except maybe the ballroom one .

emsie :  Your bra should stay in place once the top is fitted to you but maybe get a low back bra just in case.
