cutting out a skirt on monkscloth
I learned to sew while growing up and am trying to get back into sewing. I am making a skirt using monkscloth (stretches in one direction). The skirt has three panels top, middle and bottem. The top panel includes the entire waist of the skirt and slopes down on one side , the other two panels have a down-sloping direction.
My question regards cutting out the skirt. Should I lay the pattern out so that the direction of the stretch goes from side to side? That seems the most logical since that would offer the stretch needed when sitting down or just bending.
The fabric is nice and I want to start this project out on the right foot.
