So far, I've only made a few skirts, all with elastic waists, but want to start by making some skirts and dresses that are not elastic, but have either buttons or zippers. Looking at patterns, I am not sure which size to go with, since when I did a quick hip and waist measurements, I got them being almost the same. Waist was 44, Hips 45.

Looking at not only patterns, but size charts for stores as well, there is always at least several inches between the waist and hip measurements.

When looking at patterns, I'm not sure which size of the two I should be using.

They need to fit your waist, so use that. They will definitely be big enough in the hips. Make sure you check the finished measurements, not just the size chart.
