Here are some no-pattern sewing instructions for a simple Renaissance shirt. I've used this basic pattern to make shirts of various shapes and sizes as a costumer for plays. It has been so useful that I wanted to share it with you!

Step 1: Measurements
You will need:
-Nape of neck to middle of hips (or whatever length you want the shirt to be). We'll call this "Length Measurement". [pictured]
-Bone of shoulder to wristbone. We'll call this "Sleeve Measurement". [pictured]
