We did not buy a pattern so I decided to wing it! These were the measurements: length (from waist to floor: 46 in), waist (30 in) and hip (44 in) measurements as well as the approximate length I needed around my knees to walk (35). So I cut a piece of fabric 47 in X 45 in because I need seam allowance. I folded this in half like a hot dog so the width was now 17.5 in (length is still 47 in).

As for the waist, I just did a fold and used stitch number 7 which did basically what number 5 did except it added a running stitch. I did not want a waistband so this was the simplest form i could think of.
For the hem, i decided to leave as is for the time being since knits do not ravel. After wearing it out once I will decide if a slit is needed for walking and THEN I will try hemming it with a twin needle which will be another adventure!
