It turned out well (with a reservation or two) but I did make one important change to the pattern because of the striped front panel. I new a regular bust dart would distort the stripes less than a French dart which was on the pattern.
This post is to explain how to change a French dart to a regular bust dart.
Here's what I did.
Step 1. I traced the upper bodice center pattern piece.
Step 2. I drew a line from the side seam to the bust point about 4" below the underarm..
Step 3. I cut a line through the center of the French dart, to but not through the new bust line.
