@Asparagus:

Hi, I wonder why it would be stepping on FSIL’s toes if you asked your FMIL to make your dress.  Anyway, if you are asking your FMIL to “do alterations” for you, would that still be an issue for the FSIL?  Maybe you could ask these questions of FMIL–Gee, I know how fabulous you are at sewing, and I was thinking . . .but I don’t want *FSIL name* to be upset,. . .    I guess what I am saying is, ask FMIL her take on things.   I think it would be wonderful to have her assist with altering a gown for you, 🙂

No offence to your FSIL, but that’s pretty ridiculous.

Anyways, I do actually think you could add straps to a strapless dress!

I agree, FSIL is being ridiculous!!  I would definitely talk with the FMIL and tell her what you are thinking of doing.  (You could also tell her you are afraid of offending FSIL, but FMIL will likely come up with the best way to handle everything-including her daughter!  lol.  🙂  Best Wishes!
