Thoughts for the Snakeskin fabric

I thought it would make a nice skirt but had difficulty thinking about laying it out and getting the stripes even. I want to make a Magic Pencil Skirt out of it but getting the subtle stripe even posed a problem

I decided to trace another copy of the skirt for ease of layout. In some instances I can see where it would also help to have either a back and front or the whole skirt as one piece.

The skirt pattern is only one piece to be used for both front and back. After placing on the fold, you cut two. Considering the layout, you would either need to pick up the piece and cut it again or trace two. I decided to trace two.

It's been a busy week.
