I think you're right; otherwise the skirt part would be likely
to ride up. I would be tempted to order one to examine, and
then send it back. Would that be unethical? It should be
lightweight enough to go for the Priority Mail minimum, in one
of the USPS's tyvek PM envelopes.
Probably. I'd be more tempted to go scour the pattern books to
find something like it. Or you could just cut a pair of shorts
out, cut a skirt an inch or two longer and copy the same
waistband shape, and put both on one waistband.
That's what I think I'll end up doing. I did find Vogue 8018,
McCalls 4867 or 3677, or KwikSew 3316, but none are *exactly*

This young lady gets what *she* wants or it will languish in the
back of the closet. ;-) I don't care to spend my time sewing
for her and not having the result be something she'll be happy to
say "Thanks, my Grandmother made it!" I was delighted the other
day, when I showed up over there and she was wearing a t-shirt we
embroidered with multi-colored hearts for Valentines day. She
still wears the denim jacket, on the back of which we embroidered
an Arabian horse, even though it's getting too small.
