Is there anyway you could contact an etsy seller and see if they could make an off the shoulder bolero? I’m not a seamstress or anything, but perhaps it could be done.

What does your dress look like? Just for sake of time, you have to wear a bolero but you can get some really pretty ones. I agree with @afbacher, try contacting the etsy seller and talk to them about what an off the shoulder and how fast you could get it. Make sure, though, you have a backup in mind at a store that you can easily purchase in case an online purchase doesn’t work.

Beautiful! Your gown is beautiful and I really like the bolero. Would you be ok with it not being off the shoulder?

Try contacting the etsy seller and see what you can do with that. Could a seamstress alter a bolero that you buy from the store? Maybe you could find one you like and a seamstress could cut it down and either sew it in to your dress or give it a tie or buttons to hold it together.

Is there any way you can order extra matching lace to the dress? That way, it “goes” and looks like a part of the dress?

Also, I would start by offering her $90 because it’s low enough that you might get it but low enough to go up if she doesn’t accept it. Also, talk with her about the condition and how many times it was worn, if she got it new, any rips/tears/stains, etc…
