I need a pattern for "skorts"

'Skorts' is the name used to describe a pair of shorts with a flap across the front so that from the front it looks like a skirt.

I want to make some for my girls.  It's a compromise.  It looks like they are abiding by the local dress code of wearing a skirt (this gets stronger the older they get) but gives them the freedom and modesty that comes with a pair of shorts.

I have looked on spotlight and have looked through the usual catalogues online.  I can't find one.

I have done some experimenting but would like to get a better fit and shape than I have managed by just making it up.

Can you help?

Here are some helpful links that I was sent in response to this post:
