Another sold-out dress question!

Can I buy this dress
if it's a) three sizes too big and b) I need to add sleeves? What would the cost be like? Should I ask someone on Etsy to make something similar instead?

Apparently, the only dresses I like to buy are sold out ones on Asos
that are not in my size.
I need to change into a short, white-ish dress at my wedding because my main dress is HEAVY and no good for dancing. I found this dress on Asos that is perfect except for the fact that a 10 is at least two sizes too big, probably three by the time the date rolls around. I also would need to add sleeves to the dress.
This is basically the absolute perfect dress I had in mind for changing into on my wedding, except that it's sleeveless. How much would it be to get it altered? I don't want to attempt to get the dress altered only to discover it looks horrible.
I'm fine asking a designer on Etsy to make a recreation, but I feel like the beautiful detailing would be difficult and super-expensive to replicate. Yes or no?
Recommendations for seamstresses in NYC are, again, appreciated.
