I am 12 and have just learned how to do 4 in 1 chainmail. I want to make a vest but I can't find a pattern. Can someone tell me where to find a vest pattern? Or several patterns to choose from?

Thanks!

One idea is to go pick out a pattern from a local sewing/fabric store and try to use that as a guideline to shape your pieces. I haven't tried that myself, yet, but I think that's what I plan on trying.

You might want to try the following maybe:

That might get you what you want.

there's also a lot of great info on making hauberks on this site under articles, for just a regular vest follow those directions minus the sleeves and make it shorter
