I absolutely love the sweep on the gown, but the top i don't care for I'd like to convert it to a simple princess seam sweet heart cut or even a plunging v-neck. Any suggestions on the easiest way to accomplish this? And i do want it to be all one piece.

It's hard to tell from the line drawing, but if you eliminate the bow on the bodice, you might be really close to what you're looking for. It'd be worth looking at the pattern pieces to see how it's constructed and whether you can eliminate the bow easily.

ETA: If you look at the reviews for the dress here on PR, there are several that talk about leaving off the bow.
