Rotate the side dart closed and the dart in the neckline opens. So, I kinda wasn't thinking in this spot here. I should have had some more wax paper underneath to tape and stabilize. I ended up doing this afterwards and it was fine. You now want to straighten your shoulder seam. Your arm-scythe will have changed shape, but as long as the length hasn't changed you're still good. I think in most cases I would have rounded from the shoulder seam to the middle, giving me sort of an arch. Since I needed a straight line across in to re-draft the self-lining, I used the part that I had cut off as my starting point.
