I want to add straps to my gown in the same fabric as the dress. The thing is, although my dress is from DB, I didn’t buy it there, I bought it used on ebay. They still sell this dress there. Will they even do alterations for me? Will they be able to get matching fabric? How much do you think it would cost to add simple thin straps to a dress?
Thanks for any help 🙂

f you want spaghetti straps you can get great varieties and they’ll probably have some spares laying around – they come free with the dresses so just say you got it at a different DB and they might help you no questions 😛 or else I’d say maybe $30? Or if you want fabric straps you can sometimes get your seamstress to take the leftover material from your hem and alterations to make straps. Or again, they could source you material from the bodice or skirt, and a good seamstress can remove appliques (if any) from the dress and place them on the straps. This last route is what I will do, and I was quoted about $100 for the material and applique removal/placement.
I’m in Australia too, but it shouldn’t be too different. Hope this helps!!
