Can I change an A line skirrt pattern to a straiight skirt?

I have a nice quick sew pattern for an A line skirt. I would like to
make a straight skirt because I have some pretty linen /rayon blend with
an embroidered boarder. I think the boarder would look better on a
straight skirt. I was thinking I could Straighten it by measuring from
the line for straight grain to a new seam line. I know I can just cut
and sew 2 panels together and add a waist band or gathered waist but
don't want it to have a lot of gathers. The fabric is close to a medium
weight denim. Any ideas.

Oh I've hung 1 window drape finally. My DD was supposed to email me
pictures she took of it.I also made 2 beach cover ups for little GD's
and have 1 more to go. I was away for 3 weeks got back Thursday, sewed
and worked on a party I was giving Saturday night, babysat 7
grandchildren Sunday and decided to take today for me. I might even take
tomorrow.
