Measure one quarter of the waist measurement along the Waist Line (from A along towards B) and add 4,25 cm (1 and 2/3 inches) - mark off this point (I) and measure 1,25 cm (1/2 inch) straight up and mark off point J. If your waist is more than 30 cm (12 inches) smaller than your hip measurement, you should add 5,25 cm (2 and 1/8 inches) rather than 4,25 cm (1 and 2/3 inches).

    When I follow your instruction “point (I) and measure 1,25 cm (1/2 inch) straight up and mark off point J.” I get J directly above I, whereas your block shows point J to the left of point I. What am I doing wrong?

      Problem solved. I am taking point I as being up from G.
