This was my first time following a pattern from Prince Armory and it worked out great! The leather I chose to use wouldn't work for tooling as the originals call for so I opted to use a stitch groover to add the designs and added a suede liner. These were a fun project and will definitely only be the first of many projects from Prince Armory patterns.

This was the hardest part of the armor set so far but oh man the results are speaking for themselves. The wet forming part is important specially for this part. Having a good knowledge also of the different size of leather (oz.) is helpful also. Too thin and this project will not look as good as you hoped. Too think and you are opening a can or worms. (specially when using double caps rivet. Beside all that if you are ready to follow the amazing free tutorial offered well this will be an amazing adventure. Worth every pennies and sweat. For more mobility I did a modification and copied Japanese attachement armors by adding two holes and passing a a leather lacet instead of a belt strap.

This was my first attempt at a leather pattern. Although i changed a few design elements to fit the body dimensions of the wearer and changed the theme it was incredibly easy to follow along with the video tutorials and make those changes as necessary. I highly recommend this bundle to anyone wanting to craft a full set of armour for those fantasy knights in your life. Great value and exceptional results no matter which way you craft it. The Base pattern is so solid it can easily take modification and still turn out an exceptional result. Hats off to Prince armoryfor making your stellar crafting look so easy for those with little to no experience! Highly recommend this bundle to anyone
