Mitch's Renaissance Festival tunic is hot off the machine, leaving me with only the pants to go!! Woo hoo, home stretch!
McCalls 4530 as a basic shirt block. I cut the front as one piece with center front on the fold, and a slightly lower neckline. I lengthened the body to just above the knees and marked the slit in the front of the neckline, and up the the hip on the side seam. I used the sleeves as-is, except for straightening out the lower edge to make a smooth hemline. Obviously, I ignored cuffs, collar and front bands, as well as the various "western" yokes.
