The other day a friend of mine gave me two bags of old clothes for the flea market. Of cause I had to take a look inside and there I found it. A hidious 80s leatherjacket with huge shoulderpads and a weird lining with a huntsman motive. But with a beautiful soft, brown leather. I fell in love with it and knew I wouldn´t sell it but make something out of it. Of cause a bag was the obvious solution. The jacket had a beautiful pleat on the back which had a bright brown facing. It was asking to be transformed into a pleated bag. I also blogged about the bag here.
