Locate your origin point (point O) near the top left corner of your sheet of paper. Draw a straight line downwards and measure off 3 cm (1 & 3/8"). We call this point "A", it is the bottom of the back neckline. Note that the line from point "O" to point "A" is a construction line, not part of the final garment outline, and should therefore be drawn in lightly.
