Grafting Help

I've nearly finished Magknit's Blossom, modified rather a lot. I didn't pay too much attention to one of the modifications, and now I'm in a quandary:

I've finished the knitting, and just need to graft/sew together the shoulder seams. Unfortunately the way I have modified the pattern I've ended up with the back sides of the shoulder straps a lot longer than the front, so the seam will sit at the front of the shoulders. I tried the three needle bind off that I had intended to use and it is too bulky and sits funny. I'd rather not have the noticeable sewn or three needle bind off, but I'm not sure how grafting will work in this case.

It's three stitches of garter border on each side of three stockinette stitches. Is there a way to Kitchener/graft together IN PATTERN? if so, do I want to have the front and back straps both end on right sides, wrong sides, one right, one wrong??

This is a gift so I'm picky about how it turns out, but at the same time I'd rather not try a million things and rip because the yarn tends to split if it is pulled out over and over.

I appreciate any hints, tips, etc.. I've googled but am probably not looking for the right words.
