It is made a lot like this one and this one but incase you are still unsure on the instructions, I made a really (hopefully) simple diagram. (let's all take a moment to laugh at my "drawing" ability) Ok so there are 3 measurements you will need.
1.With the arms stretched out wide measure from one arm where you want the sleeve to land across to the same place on the other arm. Add length for hemming the sleeve and this is your width for the top.
2.Next you will want to measure the widest part of the chest then I usually add about 2-3 inches so it is a little loose.
3. Next measure from the top of the shoulder to where you want the tunic to end, add length for hemming.
Ok so those are the 3 measurement you will need, now you are going to make a large rectangle with a fold up at the top (where the neck is) the width should be measurement #1 and the length will be measurement #3 Then determine how wide you want the sleeves to be. I usually make them nice and wide, just remember the front is only half the width of the sleeve. Then once you determined the sleeve width you will cut in the sides so the lower part of the rectangle is the width of measurement #2. You will have what looks like a big square shirt.
For this one I cut the top part out of one kind of fabric (with the fold on top) and the lower part out of another fabric. (no fold)
