The best way to start with patterns.
I've never been a pattern kind of sewer, they tend to freak me out most of time so i usually just go with the flow. I've tried a couple of Burda Style patterns, and they are great, but do require patience and some skills. However, i found skirt patterns really easy to make and, best of all, to modificate.
This is the basic pattern, but i encourage you to play with it, it's fun!
I tried to be as clear as possible, if you have questions, please let me know.

IMPORTANT: this pattern is for a regular skirt, that is the one that goes to your waist, but if you want to lower it just replace the "waist meassurment" with the meassure of where you want it to go, the hips one doesnt change.
First, take the following meassures:
* waist heigh (I'm not sure how this is called in English, but it's the distance between the hips and the waist).
* lenght of the skirt (form the waist to the bottom).
When you cut the fabric, cut on fold on both right rides of the pattern.
