You will need a piece of paper that is big enough for the whole draft; stick two pieces together if necessary, and then turn the paper over so that the tape is on the back.
From top to bottom it will need to be
(your nape-to-waist measurement) + (your waist-to-hip measurement) + 15cm (6”)
So if your nape to waist is 17” and your waist to hip is 8”, the paper will need to be 31” long.
From side to side it will need to be
(half of your bust measurement) + 15cm (6”)
so if your bust is 40”, the paper will need to be 26” wide.
And now to the main event! Download the drafting instructions below by right-clicking and selecting "Save target as." Have fun!

AND DON'T FORGET - the most important thing...
|Kudos goes to readers 1stborn_unicorn and lark_ascending, who have both been savvy enough to have spotted a typo in the tutorial:
On page 8 it says, "From B to C is half your bust measurement plus 5cm (2"). So if your bust is 40" measure 26" from B and mark C."
Actually, if your bust is 40", you should measure 22" from B and mark C.
