I hung my tarp from the ridge line with the sides hanging, started from each end gathering the fabric toward the RL and tieing the fabric off with string every foot or so. This gave me the shape of the bundled tarp, which ended up being tapered from the ends to the center. Draped the skin material (netting) over and pinned for sewing. Hope this will help.
