We were both working with faux leather skirts here, but the same concepts still apply. Even the wonderful Mr. Tim Gunn agrees that faux is a now a passable alternative to the real thing!
But please don’t call it “pleather” or “vegan”. One dates you and the other is just annoying.
If you can’t settle for anything but the real thing, however, there are plenty of leather skirts to be found in thrift (and especially vintage) stores! (Britt found a great one one time, but it ripped, *tear*)
