Yes, and the moth does not like the taste of synthetics, but the real wool is to her liking.

- Draw 2 perpendicular lines that come out of this point.
- On the horizontal straight line we measure the distance equal to a quarter of OG + 4 cm.
- Just make a mark on the vertical line.
- We construct a bisectrix starting from a corner, we put on it the same point.
- With the aid of a curve, we construct a curve connecting the three upper points-this is the waist line.
- From this curve we measure the length equal to the desired DI, we put the points on the corresponding straight lines.
- We connect the bottom points.
