Seamstress here!  That looks like it could be do-able, with enough time, money, and lace.  

Assuming you have enough lace to do either, but you would need a seamstress with a delicate touch to appliquee it all together in a seamless (pun intended) way. The hardest part looks like it would be piecing the lace together so the pattern of it looks right.

Also, it depends where the lace ends on your dress – is it all over, or limited to the bodice like image #3.  It looks like acheiving image #2 could be easier, because you don’t need as big of a swath of lace as #3 needs. 

Lastly, since your neckline has a deep V front, I think option #2 might make more sense visually – the halter in #3 with the low V might look weird.

However, without being able to touch or see your lace and how the dress is connected, a girl can only estimate.  Definitely track down a great seamstress and have them way in on time and $$$ needed to make this work. Good luck!
