Now, go back to the origin point O again, and measure across one fifth of the NECK measurement minus 0.2 cm (or 1/10") and mark (point G). If you don't have a NECK measurement, you may estimate it from the BUST measurement by adding or subtracting 1 cm to 37 cm for every 4 cm increment above or below 88 cm in the metric system, or by adding or subtracting 1/2" to 14" for every 2" increment above or below 34" in the Imperial system. If you are estimating the NECK measurement from the BUST measurement as presented here, make a note of the result - you shall need this again. You may choose to draw a line from O to G - if you do (it is not, strictly speaking, necessary), then draw it lightly, as this is not part of the final block outline.

    I’m not quite sure how to do the math here. If I have a 100cm bust, how do I estimate the NECK measurement?
