Acceptable in high society punk safety pin jacket :)
I loosely followed this how to -

But after the first few pins, you just end up making it up as you go along :)

Also, never really had to take a photo of my own back before, harder to do than the jacket :D

  • Step 1

    Attach pins to form wings, don't panic about trying to get both wings identical as it's not going to happen x

  • Step 2

    after you're happy with the shape and size of your wings, the placement of the pins and such, pinch the safety pins closed.

  • Step 3

    stitch the safety pins down not only for added security but also so that they lay flat against your jacket and shows off your design a lot better. And done :)

for taking pics of your back wearing the jacket, if you have a camera with a timer you can always try that if you cannot find someone else to take the pic... This looks very nice! I might try to make one myself as I have a jacket that needs some sprucing up..
