Making a shirt pattern from a bodice pattern

I've decided to make my suit blouse with princess seams, so that if I need to alter it, it would be far easier than using a basic two dart pattern. I used my unfinished snake dress bodice to make the shirt, without the neckline yoke for the dress. To make a shirt out of a bodice pattern, you simply add 9" in length to the waistline seam of the bodice, making sure you add enough width to fit the abdomen.
