Is there any way I can match the the fabric design on this A line
skirt:>
http://www.lauramarshdesigns.co.uk/pattern-categories/free-patterns.html
and this fabric:

/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=f5c54a7e-36ef-463b-8139-c5a12ee3b290&CategoryID=fa175f22-9c15-430f-8a49-e219f6aeb81e

The repeat is 3 inches horizontal and 4 inches vertical. Or should I go
for a full gathered skirt.

The pattern calls for two pieces of fabric, presumably an
"A" line?  I don't think I'd make much of an effort, because
no matter what you do it's going to be unaligned somewhere
along the seams.  I WOULD be sure the *horizontal* design
lined up, but nothing would tempt me to try to match each of
the little critters along the sides.  ;-}

HTH.

Thanks, I was thinking that,but unsure of myself so I figured I'd check
with you. I think it will make up to be a pretty A line and a bit more
flattering than a gather. I want to get enough done before the weekend
so that I can measure my DD for the hem.

You then know how much I've been agonizing over what to. DH laughs and
tells me I'm getting too picky. DD says she's sorry she's causing so
much trouble. I keep telling her it's not trouble it's from her, it's
trouble from me, wanting things to look really good.

Juno, I would think the only place you would achieve a pattern match
on a four gore a line skirt is the CF and CB seams, if they are
perfectly straight for their whole length. May be worth trying, maybe
not! I think as Beverly says, getting it all lined up horizontally is
a good plan.

Thanks for your input Sarah.  I think I'll go just for the horizontal
match and forget the vertical match.. The pattern is a very definite A
line and no matter how I looked at it I just couldn't see those side
seams lining up vertically. I wanted to be sure I wasn't missing
anything. She wants to wear it with boots and I think the pattern I'm
using  will look best without a center seam.
  All any  of us need is more time. Glad you found some to sew.
