Dungarees - Bodice smaller than trousers

Hi I wonder if someone can advise me. I’m sewing a pair of dungarees and have cut everything accurately and followed the instructions, yet when I’ve come to attach the bodice to the trousers the bodice is smaller so attaching the zipper will not work. What can I do? This seems to happen to me a lot, but with a skirt I can at least gather it to fit. I have a pic but this is my first post so I don’t know if I can attach it! Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your reply. I don’t think i can attach a pic because I’m on a mobile device, but I actually managed to resolve my issue by sewing straight down the bodice and waistband and then grading down the stitching on the trousers. Again I have pics but can’t upload! Sorry! This worked on this occasion but I was worried I’d be losing too much room in the trousers. Thankfully they fit! Anyway, thanks again!
