Using your French Curve, draw in a curved line between points "S", "P" and "D". If you don't have a French Curve, use a dinner plate (draw a small section of the curve, then slide the plate along and draw a new section - you'll need to practice to get this to work). This line is the armhole (armscye) seam and forms part of the final block outline - once you have worked out a satisfactory curve, you should pencil the line in more heavily.
