Advice on Making a Kirtle

I am going to be making kirtles for 3 friends of differing body types, one in THIS style and two in THIS style
Has anyone ever made a kirtle before? If so, do you have any advice?
The websites I have looked at recomended cutting two rectangles and fitting those to the body, then adding large gores in the sides. I'm a little confused about the sleeves and gussets mentioned on this website: do you sew them together to create a sleeve, then sew them to the bodice? And how do you decide how big to make hte arm hole (or is that decided during fitting?)
Interested in commissioning a costume or accessory from me? Go to my Facebook page for more information

Alternatively, order an accessory or some clothing from my Etsy store.
