Springtime DIYs


Outfit picture from the weekend, we had a nice time outside walking in the sun and drinking beer. 

Farewell jacket, you have served me well for the past couple of years, but your design wasn´t fit for a proper punk jacket. 
It was given to me and I used the opportunity to sew patches and put studs on it, but the cut of this jacket always made it look military-ish with no real collar design to put pins on. Plus, it had a belt sewn to it which broke when I tried using it as a bottle opener last summer.

The time has come- a new jacket in the form of a blazer awaits. It is currently being altered to my size by a friend, so hopefully I will be able to DIY it this week and show pictures later!


Old patches from old jacket had to be redone as well, as most of them were frayed and didn´t hold on any more. All of these are made by me except for the Metro Cult patch (go check them out!). The cruelty patches were cut from a Cradle Of Filth t-shirt ;) kind of like a more brutal take on the infamous "hate" backpatch lol.

Today was a nice productive DIY day. My new jacket will be way more punk 77, I am so excited!

  1. Anxiously waiting pics of your new jacket! And that is so smart and bad-ass to use your jacket's belt as a bottle opener! :D

  3. Ha ha nice story about the belt. I have never figured out how to use a knife or such as a bottle opener. I used my teeth instead until I was talked down not to do it (foolish me).
    Good that you saved all the patches. I hope that you'll find a fitting jacket.
