Add to the length by measuring 5cm (plus your desired hem allowance) down from the hem of the top, on both of the front bodice pieces and the back bodice (for a style that sits at the hips).

Taper the dart to nothing at the new hemline by drawing a line from the bottom of the original dart points to where the dart centre-line you just drew intersects the hemline.
