I think that’s a really nice alternative, in fact I would love to know where you got that picture! But as above, what is your question? My opinion boosters are ready to fire! haha.

do you want to alter the strapless dress to look like the spaghetti strap one? like, are you hoping to add spaghetti straps?

LOL! Well now that you have fixed your post, I would say your best bet would be to go with the cap sleeve option. I fear that the neckline might be to high and broad to go with a halter, but then again I’m not a seamstress! is the “strapped” dress the one you missed out on?

who made the spaghetti strap dress?  Did you try another shop or preownedweddingdresses.com?  Its gorgeous.  But I agree with another poster  -the style of the strapless one is going to be difficult to add a halter strap.  You’re probably best off adding cap sleeves.

They can take down the neckline to a V and add small straps to look like the dress there! I’m having my straight cut strapless altered into a V neck, that way you are more in control of the bust. They can do a lot, shop around for a good tailor!
