    It seems a pity that it cannot be returned but since it is only available in the one size then it cannot be exchanged. I suggest that you perhaps consider removing the skirt and putting in a black lace panel in the side of the bodice to fit you ( it is posible to buy stretch lace ). Adjust the gathers on the skirt section and reattach ?

    i restiched the waist with a straight edge stitch 2 times giving it about half a inch extra room and it seems to fit better
