I got a really nice bunch of fabric in Black Watch tartan and have been thinking of turning it into a half-circle skirt, but I’m worried because it means the alignment between drape and pattern might get a bit wonky in places—that is, much of the skirt will have the checks running at all sorts of angles except for two rather narrow sections where they can be expected to run roughly parallel/perpendicular to the ground. Is this a problem at all? Has anybody tried to make such a plaid (half-)circle skirt with satisfactory results? If it turns to be a bad idea, I guess I’ll just settle with the dreaded Skirt of Many Pleats….
And, since I’m still a novice sewer who handles buttonholes a lot better than zippered flies (which I tend to mangle rather horribly), I guess I might just as well ask a secondary question here: would such a thoroughly-patterned skirt look good with front opening buttoned all the way down? If so, what do you think would be best: shiny metal buttons or ones covered in the same fabric as the rest of the skirt?
Thanks beforehand for any answers to either question!
