I think your dress is cute---gathers and all. I keep looking at this style for me as well, and your dress is inspiration.

Your dress looks great on you. Bravo for your beautiful lining, too! What a cute summery tea party dress! It does NOT look goofy! I also have lots of flat chestedness so I know what you are saying about the poufiness of gathering. Maybe next time you could remove some of the width at the lower bodice front to make less volume in gathers, if you don't feel good about it. Perhaps what you are seeing as poufy is the gathering filling the sizeable distance below your bust and where the raised band attaches. I think the neckline looks great stitched down and has just the right amount of gathering. Wear it and think "cool and chic."

I think this looks nice, but might some of your doubts be due to the fabric being quilting cotton. Voile or lawn is more flowing.
