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.
