Wow looks fantastic! but i agree with the other poster, make it mid calf length!!! instead of hemming you could add a bit of lace  - nothing too crazy - just a subtle detail!

 Shocked BEAUTIFUL!!!  It's all been said in previous posts, but I have to chorus in - you did an AMAZING job with the altered top and you look gorgeous!  Being another of curvy figure I hate trying on clothes in general and you not only braved wedding dress shopping, you totally trumped it with your own creation. 

Best wishes for your beautiful wedding day and all the years beyond . . .

This is why I hate making clothes for myself! They never look the same on the model as they do me! You did a great job at changing the cut of the dress so that it accentuated your curves! Note to self...buy empire waist patterns.

It looks beautiful. Well done for sticking with it and making it work for you. It's so easy to get disappointed when it doesn't look like the one in the picture (I do sometimes) but you've ended up with something much better.

This is one of the most beautiful wedding dresses Ive ever seen!
I must admit that I also like dresses with a lot of beads and details (though not the ones that make you look like a wannabe princes, lol), but I love the simplicity of yours!
My cousins getting married, too, this summer and we just had a talk about dresses, which resulted in me being told by my mom that it was rude to say I wouldnt spend almost 1000 on a single dress... but honestly, who could still think that was necessary, after having seen your amazing project?

This is absolutely stunning! All the best.
