Now draw the line parallel to OB at the other side of the block, upwards for the same distance as the length of OB (this is equivalent to the ARMSCYE_DEPTH plus 2 cm or 4/5"). For bust sizes below 92 cm or 36", this will return you to the same height as the origin point. For bust sizes above 92 cm or 36", add one eighth (1/8th) of the amount above 92 cm (or 36") and raise the point D this distance above the level of the Origin point. Hence for a 100 cm bust (39"), you will raise the point D, 1 cm (or 3/8"). Draw a thin line between the origin point (O) and this point (D - note that the thin line is not shown in the diagram). Note that this results in the top edge being skewed - this is normal. If you are estimating the ARMSCYE_DEPTH here, please note the measurement - you shall need it several times. (Note that in the figure, ARMSCYE_DEPTH is indicated as ARMSCYE).

    I am making the bodice sloper (my second try as I found the instructions, specfically the DART calculations in step 20 extremely confusing). Can you please clarify the following: add or subtract 0.6 cm to 7 cm for each 4 cm bust increment above or below 88 cm. If possible maybe include a sample calculation and I might be able to figure out your meaning from that. Of if you have a formula that would be appreciated also for future projects. Thanks.

    I am very interested in your method especially for the manufacturing of bra because those of the business do not really correspond to me. My problem is that I am French and that the translation of the terms is difficult for me. Being Quebecois, should you have a French-speaking version ? Thank you and bravo for what you make.
