    I love the idea however, like most pop tab crafts a lot are needed. It's great that you had the time and effort to collect and make this but I think I'll save this for a less last-minute costume opportunity. :)

    the arms are fairly simple with wire rings, but with pop-tabs, not quite.. make a W-I-D-E strip about shoulder to wrist length, in the same rotation as the shoulders. (and about the same height as the inverted "U" of the vest shoulder holes.. ), attach to the shoulders, and then begin closing from the wrist end into a tube. Once you're about 8-inches from the flanks, begin attaching the inverted "U", back towards the wrist, (will require adding another horizontal row on one side, to even it out.) once you reach a odd-triangle, simply close with one. . this should give you a slightly downward to both sleeves. (which, read below, Stresses like crazy if you raise your arms a lot.) (picture of me, with a friend with the first Inlay I did, in copper & steel.)

    Nice Tab-Maille! But, hardly mighty.. Even butted (plain metal ring) tends to tear over time with stress in areas. (I've made steel, copper & aluminium wire rings. and every time, have a few shed. by opening)
