6. Mid-Neck: The circumference of the neck measuring along the horizontal line that is 1” up from the H.P.S. on each side neck. (Sketch 2.4)

7. Neck at Base: The circumference around the base of the neck.Take measurement starting at the C.B. Neck point, go around to the H.P.S. and to C.F. Neck, your cord or chain will naturally fall into a nice curve from these points, then back to C.B. Neck. (Sketch 2.5)

8. Cross Shoulder: The horizontal width measured from shoulder point to shoulder point.Take measurement at back shoulder. (Sketch 2.3)

9. Side Shoulder: The length of one side of the shoulder, measure from H.P.S. to shoulder point. (Sketch 2.6)

10. Shoulder Slope: The distance measured from an imaginary horizontal line at H.P.S. down to shoulder point.This measurement is also measured in degrees, however, in this handbook, we will measure the distance with a tape measure or a rule, as it is commonly done in the industry today. (Sketch 2.6)

11. Cross Front: The horizontal width across the front of the body taken from armhole to armhole.Take measurement at the half way point between the shoulder and the underarm, this generally falls 3” below the C.F. Neck point. (Sketch 2.5)

12. Cross Back: The horizontal width across the back of the body taken from armhole to armhole.Take measurement at the half way point between the shoulder and the underarm, this generally falls 4” below the C.B. Neck point. (Sketch 2.4)
