I do men's on commission so it is less prominent than the women's styles but thanks for the notice and understanding :)

very nice work. is there a manual that teaches you the steps or is it completely on your own to make the mail?

NikidaEve Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
I've been completely on my own for these. I didn't find any tutorials on this, and I don't go to youtube or anything really to look at videos so this was a long, tinkering process.

I love what you have done here. once I find time in college I would like to make a chain male top for myself but may need some help from friend who is in to this a lot. That is the way to go trial and error besides it doesn't look to hard to make.

Chainmaille is tedious. It's got pattern and design like every other craft, and it's got repetition. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy, just time consuming and tedious. You'll be able to get it and get it into a shirt

NikidaEve Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
With a background in chainmaille, the weave is the same as some of the regular chain link shirts just with a different shape.
But practice makes perfect :)
Make a rough draft
Tinker with details
Polish the finished product!!!

But only with this do I have patience. I could never traditionally sketch or do photoshop. Ever. Lol

I do commissions for these and also smaller ones that come up the forearm just past the wrist that are more affordable as well.

I just wish I could just give these to a ton of people :/ everyone should have something like this

Just out of curiosity, if you're using split rings to assemble the pieces how did you keep them from falling down your arm when your arms are hanging at your side? I work with scale too and and very intrigued as to how you accomplished that.
