Help me find a similar skirt.

I'm obsessed with this skirt. Unfortunately, I discovered it after my size sold out, and now it's completely sold out. I'd like to find something similar, but I am not sure how.

I don't know skirt-ology or really much about fashion and so I don't know what to call this style or cut. A Google search for "mustard skirts" and "yellow skirts" comes up empty handed. I did some ebay searching and came up with some comparable shapes but not the same style with the pocket and button up front. I even found this one on etsy which looks like a similar style, but possibly too flared, I can't tell as it's flat. (And it looks cheap and the wrong yellow).

I don't know what to call the cut and style. It's a mini, I think, but beyond that I don't know. The button down front with pockets in front seems to be an established style; in addition to the etsy one, I have a maroon courdory one that's longer but has the same features (button down front, two pockets).

Is there any hope of finding something similar? I'm not very aware of fashions so I have no idea if my dreams of finding a similar one are dashed. Also, while I like the mustard color, I could live with it in another earthy color. I did look up Mink Pink, but couldn't find anything similar

here is a similar mink pink skirt on ebay. the style of skirt is called an "a-line".

ASOS stock MinkPink, might be worth keeping an eye on there.

Modcloth often restocks so check back after a while!

eBay and Etsy searches for 'button front mini skirt' will turn up same-y stuff -- for example, & more

This Kuhl skirt is stylistically similar and to an extent so is this one from Prana.

Thank you for the suggestions. I hadn't considered sewing my own. I can't sew, but fortunately for me a friend of mine is starting to sew off patterns, so maybe there is hope!

I'll also keep an eye on modcloth in case it comes back. I thought the ones that might come back had a little thing that let you notify them you are interested in it. But maybe I'll get lucky and it will come back.

I do have one additional question. Is it an A line? I was looking up that style and the A-line skirts I was seeing are triangular shaped this appears to be more hip hugging. Is it just how the picture show it, or is it something else?

i used to sew some and i'd say it's an intermediate level skirt if it has the placket with all the button holes down the front. the pattern with panels instead of a button front would be a lot easier to make. i do think it's an a-line but not a terribly pronounced one. i could be wrong though. the short length of the skirt makes the triangular shape a little harder to see too. it's quite cute. i can see why you would want one.
