    I would find some lace or similar looking fabric and just sew in a small piece to cover up the deep V of the neck line.  I think how it is now is inappropriate for a 14 year old.

    I agree with @Moose1209: If you got some really pretty white or ivory lace it would be beautiful and still give it that vintage feel.  You can actually buy pieces of lace that clip to a dress, but I can’t find the magazine atm.

    I am a seamstress and I agree with the other posters, a lace insert would be your best bet; depending on how much fabric their is in the bodice, it might be able to be sewn together in the middle, so that it isn’t quite so low.
