I would think the knee articulation could use a couple more lames

leaves or plates.
It has been a long while since last I armored a knee or elbow, but I used to use five plates in total:
1 fixed plate below the joint
3 mobile plates on the joint
1 fixed plate above the joint
the fixed plates attach the armor to the limb, and serve to mount the articulation for the mobile plates.
I tended to use ring articulation, rather than rivets, but rivets will serve.

Nah, don't need more elements, it works very well with one. And the customer wanted a simple desing that looks historical.

*shrugs*
practical armor is always a compromise between coverage and mobility, and within reason there's no absolute right or wrong way to do it.

I'm looking at making some tassets for myself, but I wanted them to fit more like this. Lovely stuff!

Quite interesting piece of leatherwork and can work as protective gear for fencing (Or even for some martial arts - I can imagine laughing to low kicks with those on...)
But it could use better shaping around the knee area plus its not really "historical"
(And I cannot wear ther with my viking balloon pants which I finished just today...)
