Its definitely possible. There are lots of one strap dresses that have detachable straps so its basically the same thing.

What kind of strap are you asking about? I’m picturing a spaghetti strap, which honestly I think would look extremely weird. But if it’s not spaghetti then I think it would work. Get a great seamstress! She can use the fabric from alterations to possibly make a strap.

More than likely you can.  I know a lot of times you can add cap sleves so adding one strap should be an easy one.

Mori Lee has a huge selection of one shoulder straps.  I would contact a shop that carries Mori Lee and they can order you one.  They should have a catalog to look at.

@aguilpul: I’m turning my dress into one shoulder…sort of.

I’m having my dress custom made, but the foundation of the dress is Demetrios 7413. I REALLY wanted a one shoulder so I’m having it added to the dress. Here is a photoshop version of it.

@aguilpul: Phew! Glad it’s not spaghetti πŸ™‚ I like the idea of a brooch! That is beautiful! Maybe you can find a flower similar to the one on the dress to make it flow more.

Oh my goodness…That’s my wedding dress!..and I also plan to add a detachable one shoulder strap to it!! πŸ™‚

I actually came to this website and did a search for dresses with one shoulder straps, because I’m also trying to figure out how I can add the strap. (I’ve been searching the net for months!). You can imagine how surprised and excited I was when I came across your post! πŸ™‚

I’m considering buying satin ribbon or a slim piece of detailed fabric or applique (from a fabric store), to which I can then sew flowers (whether organza or otherwise). What do u think?

My sis did on her dress.  Its a gorgeous sparkly/flowery one.  It completely transformed the top πŸ™‚  They had sample ones at the shop she bought her dress at and her alterations lady is going to attach it for her.
