I have made my self a few. This is a skirt or pair of pants that buttons on each side. It has 3 decorative buttons on each side at 1/2 inch intervals. If you have a tendency to add or drop a few pounds easily, (as I do) the skirt adjusts sizes by buttoning on different buttons. I love mine! It has a total of 3 inches to size it each time you wear it. I am a seamstress and have made quite a few of these with great success for other people.
