As for alignment for the snaps & buttons, I traced out my armor onto paper, worked out the snaps placements and marked it out on both the armor and vest. Punched the vest, and glued onto the armor.
Hope that helps.
It definitely does, thanks a ton!
Forget snaps and velcro buddy, and go for the bolt method (see Bobamakers tutorial below). It really really is the way forward
