Advice on Making a Kirtle

I am going to be making kirtles for 3 friends of differing body types, one in THIS style http://www.bettinas-pages.de/picture...irtle_1_gr.jpg and two in THIS style http://www.revivalclothing.com/Produ...rkGrnLinen.jpg
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?) http://japanstuff.hubpages.com/hub/m...-wedding-dress
