My first chainmaille shirt

4 posts in this topic

Hi everyone I currently have the vest portion completed to what I want (adding length to the bottom so I don't have a belly shirt) but I am trying to figure out if its easier/better to build the sleeves separate and attach them after or if I should continue the eruo 4-1 off the vest into the sleeve as one unit.

I build the armpits first, then the arm, then the torso. Haven't had a fit up problem since I started doing it that way more than 30 years ago.

  

General Principal: Do the complicated parts first while your brain is fresh and your concept is clear. The torso is nothing but an endurance contest that a chimpanzee could do as well as any human if we could just figure out how to motivate them.

I love the way you put it when it comes to doing the torso knuut. It's made even funnier when you think about that because it's true about the endurance contest thing with building the vest. It's once you get to the more difficult parts like armpits where you actually gotta put in the thought.
