Default Creating a non-planar surface

I was modeling a sandal by modifying a circle in 3D and when I wanted to create a surface - I got stuck - As I did not start with open curves - I couldn't use birail and I still am not familiar with Maya's patch modeling - is there a waay to patch this curve in a simple command ?

Quick and easy

Draw a curve from the bottom curve to the top curve, choose the bottom curve and shift select the vertical curve you just made, then extrude. Next choose the bottom curve, go to Surface/Planar, then do the same for the top curve. There's lots of ways to do it, that's just the first one that came to mind
