Overgarmentblockhowto04_large

Measure downwards from point A a distance of the ARMSCYE DEPTH plus 4 cm (1 & 5/8 ") and mark this location (point "C"). The ARMSCYE DEPTH can be measured directly (distance from the neckline to the underarm) or can be assumed based on the standard sizes XS : 19,8 cm (7 & 3/4"), S : 20,4 cm (8"), M : 21 cm (8 & 1/4"), L : 21,6 cm (8 & 1/2"), XL : 22,2 cm (8 & 3/4"), and extend them appropriately for larger sizes (XXL : 22,8 cm (9"") and XXXL : 23,4 cm (9 & 1/4")). If you wish to make a jacket, then add 6 cm (2 & 3/8") instead of 4 cm to the ARMSCYE DEPTH measurement. This line forms part of the final block outline and should be drawn in more heavily than the construction lines.
