Cut from the breast-point to the waist-dart. Again, if the lines are wonky, make them smoother, it's okay to cut a little off the edges if nesessary.
This method to draw a line to the end of a dart, cut, open the new dart or line and close the old dart works for virually any design you like! As long as the pattern is still flat, and the points of the darts end in the same place (or along a new, longer line as shown here), the fit will still be the same. So play with it, go create! Good luck and happy sewing :-).
