Begin with an origin point, located at the top left of your sheet of paper. Your paper sheet should be at least 2" or 5 cm wider than half the bust measurement - if it is not wide enough for the block you will be constructing, tear off two sheets and tape them together (with a small amount of overlap). Leave some space to the left of and above the origin point. Some aspects of the construction process may invade these parts of the page, so you need a little bit of working room there.
