I would say any good seamstress will be able to take that off.

A top notch seamstress can work miracles. However to match the beading on the top of cup may be a trick. If your seamstress can’t or won’t do that, what about taking the flowers off the shoulder and having the strap beaded to match?

It is a very pretty dress, in my opinion minus the flowers on the shoulder!

Yes, a semstress should be able to do that — but it might be a bit expensive as PPs have mentioned because of having to reshape the cup and possibly do some beading! One thing I would make sure to look at when you get to try the dress on is “simulating” removing the strap by tucking it in to the bodice or something because I think it might change the look of the dress significantly (I wonder if it might look “off-balance” with the angled beading and dropped waist but not the single strap? Or it might look perfect — hard to tell without seeing it!)


Good luck! Hope it does turn out to be your dress 🙂

The actual designer of the dress should be able to alter their design for you.  All you need to do is have the bridal shop in which you order the dress from place specific alteration directions with your order form…..beware, it may cost extra though!  Good luck 🙂
