I bought this fabric a year ago loved the horizontal print on the bolt. Then after making 2 other skirts from my shopping fabric spree, I couldn't decide if I wanted the print to go horizontal or vertical. Love that about sewing, we get to choose, not the manufacturers.
If I made it vertical, it wouldn't be a maxi and I love maxis. SIII I thought I could add a solid extra long hem/boarder. Then I couldn't decide how I wanted it done (ruffle, pleated, etc.). Then I couldn't decide if I wanted it white or a blue color.
After going through my fabric stash I just decided to make it vertical.
