I love thrifting and tend to be drawn to wool skirts although I never wear them myself. I wanted to try something different than just a shorter version of a long plaid wool skirt. So I just shortened it, sewed it together, lined the interior, added a snap, some handles, and a cute bow with covered buttons. The pleating of the skirt adds to the total look. And it was so very simple!
