I think I have it!

The underbust shaping is vital, but I rotated some of the fabric over the shoulder and will dropped the V neckline slightly. I’ll need to ease the neckline but looking at that reverse facing of the original I think that may be what they did.
The new darts work inpart due to what makes this fabrik work so well- the wider folds in the pattern hit the bust point And just above the waist. Visually this is a V that is neither widening nor narrowing of the torso. Add to that the straight of grain support from the sleeves and this is possible.
The main differnce between my dress and the original may be the weight of the lining fabric vs shell. I’d put the darts in the lining and ease the shell if my outer fabric had enough give.
