If you are drafting the shoulder seam variant, proceed, if not, skip down. For the variant, measure the back shoulder seam length (the distance between points "B" and "S"), and swivel this length down (using point "B" as a pivot) until it crosses the construction line slightly below the line connection points "Q" and "M". Mark the intersection point as point "V", and connect points "B" and "V" - this is shown in the diagram as a dashed line, as it corresponds to an additional change between the back and the front sections of the block. This line represents the front shoulder seam.
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
