This is not a list that you need to sign up for. I will provide a download link(s) when the pattern pack is ready. I apologize for the delay, but I want the instructions in the patterns to be in terms that a beginner can understand. The patterns are finished, but the instructions are taking longer than expected to complete. I may post the patterns alone temporarily if I don't have them finished by the end of the week. Thanks for your support and patience.

It's amazing how long it can take to write up processes and instructions for things you do and tasks you perform without thinking isnt it?

As a beginner looking to try out all sorts of things I am incredibly eager for this when it is completed and released :)

I'm just finishing up the full suit patterns. I'll have them up tomorrow possibly.

The hardest part is determining if a beginner will understand what to do. I'm still unsure, so I'll answer any questions that members may have about the patterns. There are some parts where forming is optional. These parts will work either way, but they will look better when formed. There is very minimal forming required in these patterns. Mostly, the parts just wrap around the body and buckle.

My stepson's birthday is coming up and he's outgrown his old armor, so as I use these patterns to make his armor, I will post pictures here to help get a better idea of how they all come together and how you can modify them to make them unique.

Well most certainly I am a beginner and trying to gather together different patterns and ideas, I can't wait to try out your patterns and the time and energy you are putting into this is very much appreciated by many people including myself. I will make sure to test out what you provide and send in pictures and let you how it was for me.

Here is what I have so far. Instructions (limited, but they should help) are included in the patterns in some cases. I will have more as time passes, so check back periodically. Some of the patterns for the armor are old plate armor patterns found online that I have modified (some to great extent) to work better in leather, so I would like to credit the author(s) of those. There will be updates to facilitate this.

Feel free to show off what you do with these patterns. This is a community, all competition here is friendly and criticism that is given is always intended to help you improve no matter what skill level you have. I have been working with leather most of my life, but I have still learned a great deal from just browsing these forums.

What browser are you using? Sometimes just swapping a browser works--Adobe doesn't always "play nice" and what will open in Explorer doesn't always open in Firefox, and vice versa.

Thank you for the guides. I've been trying to figure out how to make a few of these. I'll have to give them a shot and see how they turn out.

I was able to access all files this morning via Google Chrome.

I don't know why some of you aren't able to get to the files. Send me an email at one.onedesigns@gmail.com or send a pm with your email and I will get them to you.

What specifically is the 404 error saying? Is it a "Not a valid URL" ? They take ~ 30 seconds for it to load on my PC, which is quite long for my very fast Internet. It's possible the host is timing out your connection to the file itself because it is taking too long.

Instead of left clicking on the link, Right click the URL and select "Save Link As...". This should allow you to download the .pdf which is what you want anyway, I assume. Try that and see if it works.

I hope it's all right, I packed the guides mrdabeetle posted into a .rar file. https://dl.dropboxus...attern Pack.rar

File size is 11.7MB

I put a readme.txt with the instructions guide and all credit to mrdabeetle.

Use Winrar (Free) to decompress.

Thanks for zipping up the files, much better to download.
