Measure to the right of point C a distance of one quarter of the bust measurement plus 4 cm (1 & 5/8"), mark the point (point "D") and then draw in the line that goes straight upward from here to the point "E", level with the point "O". If you do not have a bust measurement, but know the standard size for the planned garment, assume the following values for the bust measurement : XS : 76 cm (30"), S : 82 cm (32"), M : 88 cm (34"), L : 94 cm (36"), XL : 100 cm (38"), and extend them appropriately for larger sizes (XXL : 106 cm (40") and XXXL : 112 cm (42")). Now draw in the line from point "O" to point "E". Note that all these lines are construction lines that do not form part of the final garment outline - therefore draw them in lightly. If you are interested in making a jacket, add 7 cm (2 & 3/4") instead of 4 cm to the initial distance (one quarter of the bust measurement).
