Sounds like homework. So here are some clues.

How many wide is each shape.
How high is each shape.

How does the number of stars change on each line (just do the top part first when its working add the bottom part)
How many spaces before the start. (do spaces as # get this working before adding stars, changes # to space when it all works)

Write a sceliton for the draw_rombus routine, write a requires clause for it. (answer is in the question)
In you class have a feature number_of_line_output : INTEGER
Write an ensure for draw_rombus that uses number_of_line_output
Write a feature that outputs one line. Write an ensures clause for that feature.

P.S. your question is not O.S. spacific

If you get stuck I may add more clues/
