In order to proceed to the next step, the front dart needs to be moved - this is done by cutting along the line indicated, rotating the triangle of paper and retaping it to the other edge. Also, the block must be cut down the middle of the three dashed lines, and the two pieces slid across each other (they will hence overlap in the middle), so that the total bust measurement from CB to CF is the exact bust measurement measured from the body (that is, the ease that was introduced in the process of creating the basic bodice block is being removed!). Note that for both this diagram and the previous one (and all subsequent ones), no seam allowances are shown. The two horizontal lines are the waist line and the bust line.
