Using a ruler that pivots at point "o", for a length equivalent to the armhole seam (the curved length of the curve passing through points "S", "P" and "D" - measure this using a length of string or curving your flexible tape measure around the distance, being careful not to twist it), mark the intersection point (call this point "b") with the horizontal line passing through point "a". If you've done this right, the straight-line distance between points "o" and "b" will equal the curved distance between points "S" and "D".
