Measure horizontally from point O to the right a distance of one fifth of the NECK size plus 0,4 cm (1/8"), and mark this point (point "B"). The marks where the back neckline meets the shoulder seam. The NECK size can be obtained by direct measurement, or you can use a one of the following measurements for the standard sizes : XS : 34 cm (13&1/4"), S : 35,5 cm (13&7/8"), M : 37 cm (14&1/2"), L : 38,5 cm (15"), XL : 40 cm (15&5/8"), and extend them appropriately for larger sizes (XXL : 41,5 cm (16&1/4") and XXXL : 43 cm (17")). Note that standard sizes are used here as this is a loose-fitting garment with more ease and the more precise adjustments found for other blocks are not necessary. Note also that the line from point "O" to point "B" is a construction line - it does not form part of the final block outline. Therefore draw this line in lightly.
