I would take a look at the seams, if they are visible. This is the material that the seamstress will have to work with, and will give you an idea of how much the dress *can* be let out. Generally speaking, I've been told that if you let out every single seam to the max, you can usually get around 4 inches, which is quite a lot, so I'm sure getting it to fit won't be a problem, unless the dress is really, really small on you. What might be a problem is that the fabric where the stitching was might show the thread holes, since the material is chiffon. Again, look at where the existing stitches are and see if the holes look like they might show.
At any rate, I'd book an appointment with a seamtress ASAP to see what can be done. I think letting it out won't be a problem, but since the fabric is chiffon, there may be issues - a good seamstress should be able to tell you what the situation is right away.
