Grafting large scale mail onto small scale mail

Hi all!

I am in the midst of making a floor-length ombre/color fade scale mail "dress" (considering making it in two pieces to reduce the weight of each piece, see reference photo). The plan is to start with small scales on top and fade into larger scales, an idea I borrowed from this two-piece ensemble Daphne Guiness is wearing (https://www.pinterest.com/pin/340655159292428754/).

My question: How do I "graft" large (1") scales onto small (.5") scales without disrupting the weave? All apologies if this seems like an obvious question, this is only my 3rd scale mail garment. Tutorials and links would be appreciated.
