Adjusting Darts on a Bodice Pattern

My client is a 5 foot 2 lady with a full figure.  She needs verticality.

Horizontal bust darts don’t work for her because she is not horizontally stable…  Gravity takes its toll on the full figure, and horizontal darts don’t line up at the end of the day.  So, I’ve decided to move her darts to the waistline.

And, to enhance her height, I’m going to multiply and divide the bust dart using this picture I clipped from Pinterest.
