alter or sell iw jsk?

Hi, I'm kinda newish to lolita and I recently purchased my first brand dress from the current IW sale, the Merry Rose JSK (here. Going by the measurements on the site the dress should have fit nicely, but it turns out that I cannot zip it up fully at the bust. There is back shirring on the dress and it has a side zip. It needs another inch or two to zip up. Was kinda disappointed as the rest of the dress was fine. Now I'm in a dilemma, I'm wondering if I should get the dress altered by a tailor or just sell it. I would really love to modify it if I can, was wondering if it is possible to add some fabric inside the sides or something.
