A while ago I drafted a six-gore skirt pattern that had worked well once before in a solid-colored skirt. However, I’m wondering if it would work just as well for a material with rectangular patterns on it (gingham, checks, plaid, etc.), especially with regards with matching; the pattern was originally made as a modification of the basic A-line skirt pattern, and as a result most of the individual pieces are not symmetrical, so I don’t know whether there’s any technique or trick that would work to resolve this issue. Has anybody done this successfully? And if so, any tips and tricks? Or should I draft an altogether new pattern with symmetrical pieces (and fit the muslin, and alter, and so on) for easier matching of the plaid/checks?
