The first run of this I did a bodice and skirt and I pointed the bodice, mostly because I can't figure out how to make a bodice that is straight across comfortable.  The edge digs into my belly that way.  So after looking at the source images and what other people have done I am rethinking that choice.  I am currently leaning toward a kirtle that is A-line in the front and pleated in the back.  The over dress would probably have a waist seam since it will have an open skirt.  That just makes more sense to me.  I'm not really sure how period the A-line kirtle is for 1560/70s, but the images don't really rule it out either.  Those silly aprons make it hard to know anything of what's going on at the waist.   I know I don't want a pointed bodice and I can't get the straight across waist to be comfortable and I think the A-line gowns are really pretty.  So I will probably mock that up soon.
