Sewing a half elasticised waistband with no zip - is it possible?

Hey everyone, I was just wondering if it would be possible to sew a half elasticised waistband skirt with no zip? I recently made one with a tutorial I found in the tutorials list here (by the way, thank you so much to the author!) but I decided to make the elastic section a bit longer with no zip. I couldn't get it past my thighs.

So I was wondering if it would even be possible at all to make a half elasticised waistband with no zip and be able to pull the skirt on? I'm just wondering before I try to sew another skirt so that I don't suffer unnecessary heartbreak and seam ripping like I had to before :(.
