If you use a lot of vintage patterns like I do, you'll see on the back of the pattern envelope a yardage suggestion and pattern layout for "one-way or with nap" fabrics. (Contemporary patterns don't discuss this much now, or show a layout.) So what's a one-way print? I'll show you.

    I haven’t taken this much time on the construction of a garment in a loooong time, but this striped fabric is a one-way print and requires a bit more forethought before I go to my next step.
