I had one elastic waist band from my mom's old jeans (from the 90's...) and yellow and lavender coloured flower curtains donated by my mother-in-law. It was destiny - those two needed to be paired. I did not use any pattern but I did take a look at Emma's another ruffle skirt, store-bought, so that I would get the proportions of the ruffles correctly. This became Emma's favourite instantly and she has been twirling and dancing in this skirt the whole day.
