I had a really successful visit at the flea market a long time ago, when I bought this wool suit for an amazing 5 Euros. I just loved the fabric, a herringbone pattern in turquoise and purple! It was hand-sewn by someone unknown to me, but she or he really was a pro! So I was hesitant about cutting into it, but then again, I would have never worn it as a suit. And well, out came a coat that I have been wearing every day since finishing it. The style lines “happened” by the skirt not being quite wide enough to reach all the way to the front, and by the fact that I had no additional buttons to add (and I sure wouldn’t have succeeded in making such perfect bound button holes to match the existing ones…).
