Layered two skirts on top of each other: the top one has pleats to give it an A-line, then I attached the bottom of the second skirt to the lining of the first skirt. Created a faux pocket patch in front and added two patch pockets in the back to tie the look together. One of my favorite skirts, I always get comments on it when I wear it!
