That should be one of the easiest fixes for a seamstress – I doubt it will be a problem.

Absolutely–a good seamstress will be able to do that, no problem.

A good seamstress should have no problems making straps for your gown.  If you would feel more comfortable with straps, go for it!

of course they can add straps–very easy you can actually get detachable straps too…I know a bride that wore straps to the ceremony and then removed them for the reception.

i think the bolero will look fine over the straps, it probably won’t even be noticeable. if you want though, it would be easy for the seamstress to put in detachable straps.

Take the bolero when you go to the seamstress. She can design the placement of the straps so they won’t show when you have the bolero on.

This is a very easy alteration for anyone with even basic sewing skills.
