I would use A LOT of caution, but it makes logical sense that anything you could do with a saftey pin, you might be able to do with a broach. However I might even try with a saftery pin underneath, so that anything you pull together isn’t putting stress on the broach. BUT, that being said, you have to consider if putting a broach on a problem area will help, or just call attention to the problem.

Is it that you don’t like the look of the straight strapless, or that it is too big in general?

I bet it can be done! When I tried on my sample dress, they just used a simple pin to hold it, so I could see what it looked like as a sweetheart. With a secured and strong pin on a brooch, I think you can do it. Good luck!!

i think it dpeends on the material of your dress. some dresses are flexible enough to do it but some are too stiff and need to be professionally altered. if it’s thin enough and flexible enough to be ruched by hand, I’d use a heavy thread and hand-stitch it very carefully so it ties on the inside. and i’d keep some on hand in case it snapped.
