French Darts Forever

I have known for quite some time that French darts are my kind of darts. However, there is a bit of a love/hate thing going on, because French darts and short waist adjustments are match made in hell. But when I saw this pattern and there was not only a dress, but also a jacket with these darts I had to have it, no matter how difficult it would be to get it to fit me.

After a first hopeless muslin I have managed to get the dress to a wearable stage, although a few minor adjustments would still be helpful. I only I knew how to make them. If anyone can point me towards a tutorial on the manipulation of French darts I'd be so thankful.
