	There are no rules.  Whatever you like is just fine.  When I make
fighting tabard, I generally use my husband as a measure and from
the top of his shoulder to a couple of inches below his knees is the 
length I make.  Divide this in half, add three inches and buy that
length in 45" fabric.  I trim the top to be a little less wide that the
bottom because the eye will see that as equal and see the same width top
and bottom to be narrower on the bottom.  It's an optical illusion
