1. If the waist measure is less than the bust measure, divide their difference by two, and make a dot this distance on line 7 at each side of line 5; mark them H and I.

2. Draw a straight line from D to H, and another from D to I.

3. Make a dot at the junction of lines 5 and 8; mark it J.

4. Draw a straight line from H to J, and another from I to J.

If the waist measure is greater than the bust measure, slant these lines outward instead of inward, this will necessitate a seam.

Fold the paper under on line J, and cut the pattern on the heavy outside lines.
