What kind of neck hole should I put in a T-tunic dress I plan to wear to an SCA event, anyway? Round? Keyhole? Square?

I've asked someone who'll know, I'll let you know what I find out.

From grnvixen :

All of the above.

Seriously, they all work for t-tunics. Only if you get very very VERY picky on era/country there might/maybe/possibly be some hard and fast rules.

I'd say go with whatever is comfortable. If she is adding trim, some styles are easier than others.

Square necklines can be kind of tricky if you have not done very much sewing, they can easily end up to big and fall off your shoulders.

For hot weather I kind of like a round neckline, cut loose around the neck for comfort.

I have done square (for chemises under Elizabethan/Tudor gowns) and round. Keyhole would have been new, but I might just chicken out and go with round (as I don't want square without the overbodice to keep it in place and all) because I am pretty sure it's easier to face. ;) Thank grnvixen for me, please.
