To draft a neck drape similar to mine, draw a line 4 cm below the armhole, at a straight angle to center front. Draw a new neckline from the point wher the neckline meets the shoulderline to where the new help line meets center front (it should be parallel to the help line for 1 cm at center front). At center front, extend the new neckline into the pleat. Now, measure the new neckline at front and back, from the centers, to the shoulder (substract 1,5 cm from each to compensate for seam allowance at the shoulder). The width of the pleats is not measured here. The resulting measurement is equal to half the length for the neck drape. Either use this measurement to cut the drape on the fold, or cut it out of a single layer of fabric doubling it. The drape can be as high as you want it. Mine was 60 cm (single layer).
