ok i suck at this.. i know! haha

but i found this beautiful dress pattern today at the second hand store.. actually I found 3 different ones. one is a circle skirt of sorts, but it is the right size.. but the best one.. the one I realllllly want is a dress(sorry cant find a picture of it!)
it's about knee length, circle skirt type bottom, with low sharp vneck that also comes to an upside down v right underneath your bust.. ok i cant explain well.. but anyway.
it's for a size 14, and is a few sizes too small.. how do i go about changing it? any idea?

thanks!
