ok so i\'ve been making mail for some time now (12yrs). im trying a"seamless" ( no outward viewable seams) scale mail shirt ...
however somehow i made a counting mistake on the back of the shoulder seperation a few weeks back that i just noticed today ... i realy realy do not wish to rip the whole shoulder apart to get the correction made but i think this may be the only way to go about it please any help would be great.. pic to follow . i hope

with a pic we can help more, but what is the counting error? like you need to add a row or you need to subtract? is it noticable?

ok pics are front and left shoulder the right shoulder is fine unless it need to be changed to fix the missing row on the back of the left shoulder ...
the shoulders are 8 rows down each side, save for the left back side ...
the under weave is all the way around the arm/ arm pit but attached only on the shoulder as is saw my mistake while working on this part first time really trying to make the shoulders this way but i think it is kinda working...

at this point im thinking of ripping the under weave out and adding a few rows anyway to make the size correct back there

Ok, now that I see the piece, I am guessing that the back of the shoulder is 6 rows by my count instead of 8? the only way to fix that is to add more, now as for the underweave it is all just butted or is it welded? Butted should only take a few minutes to detach, add then reattach. But I think it looks ok otherwise.

yeah.... the underweave was butted but i was over eager and really secured it in there 4 rows each direction.It took an hour but i got her fixed up ... However in that proccess i found a few more mistakes and had to take everything apart twice because i got mad and made a mistake putting together in a hurry... i'll post a few more pics as i get this project done...

thanks much for the imput and help


P.S. has any got any ideas for long sleave scalemail shirt? ... any ideas/ help would be great.

for long sleeves would probably suggest scales on the outside of the arm only and chain mail against the body. haven't tried a long sleeve in just scale yet, if you figure it out let us know please

The scales facing each other (inside arm and side of torso) are likely to scratch each other and may even catch on each other. In my opinion it is much better to follow calisandra's advice.

I have a full sleeve attached to a chain vest. There is little/no catching and it is incredibly comfortable. God willing I will have the wife take a picture this week and get it up now that it is finished.

What about scratching? How are the scales holding up?
