A good seamstress should be able to handle that. If not consider getting a topper with cap sleeves!

BHLDN has some nice ones

I would just find one that is designed with straps. They always look better that way.

Slingshot:  My dress did not originally come with straps but I hate my shoulders and had them added on . Adding straps should not be a problem at all, the bridal shop where I went to had several that I could try on with my dress. Keep in mind the straps in pic were not completely fitted and sewn on, I’m still awaiting my dress to arrive ! The sample dress was pinned for best fit but still huge lol

I saw a bride who had a scar near her collar bone from skin cancer that she was self conscious of just use some satin ribbon to make a halter strap to her very blingy mermaid dress and it looked flawless. The back was very low so the ribbon ends and bow were extra dramatic flowing down her back.

Straps are the easier thing to add on a dress!

There are so many gorgeous dresses with straps these days.  It’s all I will try on, and I still have way too many choices that it’s overwhelming.

gandules:  this dress is Maggie Sottero Sasha, right?  If yes then this dress has an option for cap sleeves and a keyhole back.  Look on MS website
