Extend the line from D to F downwards by from 0.5 to 1.5 cm, depending on the bust measurement (i.e. 1.5 cm for large bust sizes, 0.5 for small bust sizes and 1.0 for intermediate bust measurements) and mark the point (point AB). Draw a line from the point AB to the point E. This will be an oblique line. This extension ensures that the waist remains horizontal and doesn't ride up due to the bust.
