    During the second half of the video, instructions are given to draw 3 lines on the side front all originating at the apex. My apex, and most apex points I presume, would be on the seamline at bust level, not in the interior of the side front piece ( or the apex would be in the center front panel). Otherwise the princess line would be towards the center front in an ackward position. It’s not possible to draw a line down from apex towards waist time n this situation. Not sure what I’m missing?
