Lowering the bust point, choose a spot above the bust point by 1-2 inches mark this point on The Side front pattern piece. Draw a line From the mark to the side seam stitching line3.

With paper underneath tape the top part of the piece to paper mark the amount to be increased at the front stichline and draw a line to the point on the side seam where you cut to. now tape the bottom of the piece into place along this line. Redraw the straight of grain using the line from the bottom half of the pattern.
