    I am playing around with your Block Generator and will most likely purchase the full version. I have almost completed my Bodice Block but I am having some difficulty in locating the lines for the shoulders. they extend past points P, Q and W & X but it does not state anywhere in the directions as to what distance (unless I have completely missed it).

    Cheers,

    • Hi Esther, thank you for your comment
      It seems you are referring to the dart legs on the front and back bodice block, an example of a dart leg would be point Q to point P.
      After watching the tutorial, I see your point about the value being unspecified. These dart legs are guide lines only and do not need to be an accurate length. If you follow the tutorial to the end you will see we amend the shoulder using these dart legs. To answer your question, simply extend your guide lines roughly 3-4 cm past each point. It doesn’t really matter as long as they guide line extends past it’s point.
      I hope that answers your question.
      Thanks
      Ralph
