Beautiful job on your dress, I love the lace over lay!
Question, for doing the bodice, do you just cut a piece of fabric extra long and gather it, sew it on to the pattern piece then cut off the extra or was it part of the actual pattern? I love the look but never can find a plus size pattern like that!
Stunning!

Love this.  I hope to make my own wedding dress someday, so it's always nice to see that it can be done.  You look fantastic in it.

Wherever did you get that lace?  I want.

I used Simplicity 3878 for a starting point, so that already had a pattern piece for the gathering that I modified. But, really, you just described how it works. I used double gathering for the back and the front, and 1.5 gathering for the front-sides. It's not the same width all the way around, so you would measure the width of each of the short ends per piece and just extend the length of the long ends. I gathered the bottom first, sewed it on upside-down, flipped it up to make a nice folded edge on the bottom, then gathered and sewed the top. I hope that helped a little!

I got the lace at Haberman Fabrics in Royal Oak, MI. They don't offer it on their website, unfortunately. It was in the "imported lace" section, whatever that means. Do they even make lace in the USA anymore? <-- mostly joking.  Wink
