Measure downwards from point "F" the distance of the WAIST-TO-HIP measurement and mark the point (point "H"). If you do not have a WAIST-TO-HIP measurement but know the standard size for the garment you plan to make, use the appropriate measurement from the following : XS : 19,8 cm (7&3/4"), S : 20,2 cm (7&7/8"), M : 20,6 cm (8"), L : 21 cm (8&1/8"), XL : 21,4 cm (8&1/4"), and extend them appropriately for larger sizes (XXL : 21,8 cm (8&3/8") and XXXL : 22,2 cm (8&1/2")). Now measure from this point across the width of the block to the point "I" directly below point "G" and connect points "I" and "G" with a line. All three of these lines are part of the final block outline and therefore may be drawn in more heavily. The horizontal line is the HIP LINE.
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
