European 6 in 1 Inlay

I'm going to be undertaking a project here in the next few weeks. The weave will be a European 6 in 1 with a 45 degree seam to form the cups, but that's wherein lies the problem. Since my girlfriend will be wearing this I want to inlay by chainmailling initials TW, one on either cup, but they would fall directly over the seam, anyone have some advice as to how to overcome the task without finishing the piece then going back and doing the inlay?

How 'bout having the letters BE the 45-deg join? That would involve the T more than the W of course. The crossbar of the T would have to start out by slanting downwards or you'd have a Y.

I presume she's C cup or smaller. Otherwise you'd readily enough locate the letters offcenter.
