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.
