Pretty easy to make. I'm not sure if I will be good at explaining it though.  Here goes. measure waist and divide by 3 this plus seam allowance is the measurement for the top of each jean piece. Make the bottom about an inch wider(more if you want more flare).  Make the pieces as long as the zippers you are using. You need seperating zippers if your fabric isn't stretchy. then make strips of fabric about 4 inches wide for the pleats. sew all pieces together alternateing jean, pleat jean. then just sew the zippers to the edges of the jean part. viola

hope that helps

I made one before with a plaid and black fabric. I loved it but it didn't fit me so I gave it to a friend. This one turned out ok. I think I need to do another without jean fabric.
Thanks btw
