    hi!
    has anyone ever wondered what should should be the width of the neck while drafting the sewing pattern of any garment i always make mistake by measuring it as 1/3 of the measurement of the neck and the shoulder measure as 14" which is the distance between both of bone of my shoulder bone but the clothes which i draft sags near my neck and hence its not a perfect fit i want your the helpful and useful recommendations thanx
