Please post a pic, so we can give you some ideas.  Your best bet without being able to see the problem is take it to a seamstress and see what they say.

Can you post a pic? From the way you are describing it, it sounds like you could have the weird V cut off and hemmed with the rest of the dress but you’re saying it can’t be fixed.

Post a pic… If it’s a scalloped hem and the defect bothers you so much, you might be able to get away with wearing flats and just chopping the bottom off (you’d have to make a call about whether you’d rather deal with the defect or lose the scalloping). 

As for the store- if it’s been altered, you’re probably SOL, even though it wasn’t hemmed… They have no way of knowing if that defect was there at the time of purchase or if your seamstress did it.  And honestly, how did neither you nor the seamstress, whose job it is to go over the fit of the dress with a fine tooth comb, not see this?  Not laying blame on you, we all know the glow of finding the dress, but I feel like the seamstress should’ve caught it.

I know here that even if the store has a no exhange policy by law if there is a fault in the product they are legal obligated to have to replace/fix the product. So I would look into that.
