Measure the distance from the neckline to the waist, downward from point "O" and mark this point (point "F"). If you want to use the standard sizes, use the following measurements for the NECK-TO-WAIST distance - XS : 39,8 cm (15&1/2"), S : 40,4 cm (15&3/4"), M : 41 cm (16"), L : 41,6 cm (16&1/4"), XL : 42,2 cm (16&1/2"), and extend them appropriately for larger sizes (XXL : 42,8 cm (16&3/4") and XXXL : 43,4 cm (17")). Otherwise, use the NECK-TO-WAIST distance measured directly of the wearer's body. Draw across and mark point "G" directly below point "D" and draw upward to point "D". The horizontal line is the WAIST LINE. The two vertical lines are both parts of the final block outline.
