I would ask someone if they could add the fabric.  I don’t see why they couldn’t if they can add it to wedding dress.

how high does she want it?

I think it would be easier to let her wear another dress in the same fabric, or order fabric directly from JLM and have a dress custom made for her that looks the same in front but with a different back.

Unless the whole back was redone, you would have a very visible seam along the original back of the dress.

I’d let your sister pick out a similar dress from JH that has a higher back.

What if instead of adding the exact fabric, you add a lace or something in a similar color? That way it covers, but you don’t have to worry about the seams since it’s a different fabric (we’ll call it an “accent”)

What about a bolero jacket? You could maybe have all your bridesmaids wear them for the ceremony and then they could choose whether to take them off at the reception. That way you could match the color and fabric or go with something completely different like lace.
