Sanding might work. It is not something I'd expect to have much success
with, but some folks are wizards with such things.

I found the datasheet for the connector and it is specified for up to
0.38mm. I did fit something 0.7mm in there and it will fit, but does indeed
stretch the contacts so they have less pressure when going back to the
original 0.35mm flat flex. If it involves running the risk of having to
replace the connector, perhaps it would be better to just solder a pin
header onto the main board in the first place.
