My sister makes them by adding a zipper and waist band to keep them as long a possible. They can also be made with an elastic waste band. Here are 3 tutorials on how to make them.
This is with an elastic waist band.
Here are 2 with methods with zippers.

She cuts the center out and adds a zipper and a waist band. She can put one together in about a half hour. She uses round table cloths and prefers a nice cotton twill. She uses blanket binding tape for the waist band because she likes how soft it is. Making it with an elastic waist band would be even easier.

Unfortunately I ended up going back to the belts because I had pants that didn't have the required buttons on the inside of the waist and I would need to wear those pants and no time to sew on the button at that moment and I got out of the habit. Maybe I need to revisit that. Suspenders were also warmer in cold weather because the loose waist allowed heat from my upper and lower body to move around.

It's Fabric Land and I usually get overwhelmed by the chemical smell and find it difficult to find their non-synthetic cloth. The staff are... um... well, they aren't used to people asking "where do you keep your natural cloth?"
If I knew what I was doing, I would love to invest in some yardage from Maiwa. but I don't know enough about how to sew this stuff because I don't know what fabric to get to practice sewing a skirt. I'm lost in a loop.
