I didn’t use a pattern for this. Instead, I just measured from my waist to the floor and cut a rectangle across the full width of my fabric ( it was 54″ wide I think).
For the waist I used an elastic at the back and foldover waistband interfacing at the front. I cut the interfacing to be half my waist measurement and then pinned elastic onto it while it was around my waist, adjusting the amount of elastic until it felt comfortable.
