So if you don't want to pay £40 for the whole outfit, how much are you planning to pay someone to make just the blazer for you?

Well, breaking it down:

1.5m polyester drill = £6m

5m ribbon = £2

Rose buttons = £2 (assuming buying from eBay and then painting them silver)

No lining (which would be crap but let's keep costs low)

So total for basic materials = £10

Let's say someone spends just 4 hours to make it, tailored to your size.

National minimum wage is ~£6/hr. £6 x 4 = £24.

Your total would already be £34. That's assuming 1) the commissioner makes it really quickly, 2) they're only being paid the minimum wage but making something specifically tailored to you, 3) those 4 hours include them going to the shop to buy the fabric, and maybe paying the bus fare to get there.

Basically those are unrealistic assumptions and that's already £34. So if you're looking to get a jacket for less, you're most likely going to be disappointed.
