McCall's 5079

Hi everyone, This is my first post here, and my first completed project from a vintage pattern.
McCall's 5079
McCall’s 5079 is from 1959. I made view C out of Kaffe Fassett shot cotton in Lipstick. I’d like to make the other views too!

Does anyone know what the frown-y drag lines near the armscye mean? Does the armscye need to be shortened? Or would just a little more width/ease across the chest help?

Any thoughts appreciated!
