Probably… But it would need to have good structure and a higher back I’d think so that it would stay up properly.

I’m not a seamstress, but I suspect it’s going to take a lot of work, if it’s even possible.  As the PP said, it would need to have good structure to stay up.  Does it have any boning in the bodice?

i probably could be changed into strapless.  i personally love it with those off the shoulders straps.

why do you want it to make it strapless?

I think it could be made strapless, but it would be a shame to do that to it. Is that the dress in your size or the sample?

I like the shoulder straps, but if it does have boning it could probably be done. I would try on the dress with the straps tucked in to see how secure it feels without them to get a better idea of how it looks.

If it has boning it will be fine to remove the straps. However with most strapless dresses the back of the dress is a lot lower than the one you are wearing. Look for a great seamstress to have it done. Also it will probably be more expensive to do this one because the straps are thicker at the connection to the bodice luckily there are no beads or adornments around/on the straps or on the bodice so that will be cheaper. but bring it into where you bought the dress first if they have a good seamstress have it done there because you have already done business with them with the dress. But don’t be surprised if the alteration you are wanting to do with the straps alone cost around $250. depending on how complicated the construction of the dress is underneath everything. Best bet is to bring it in and comparision shop. It may be best (if you have time) to sell that one and get a strapless. Good luck!

I think it would be a lot less work if you look for something already strapless… but like other pp’s say, if it has boning, it can be done.

I have no answer as to whether it can or can’t be…just drag it to a seamstress and ask 🙂

But I do want to chime in and say it is GORGEOUS and I wouldn’t change 1 single thing about it. I loooooove the off shoulder straps….absolutely beautiful!
