Need help with layout for print on crossgrain
My flowers are growing the wrong way!

I'm making a shirt from some embroidered muslin, and I just realized that the flowers are "growing" along the crossgrain (from one selvage to the other). I'm sure I have plenty of fabric, but my silly brain needs somebody to remind me how to lay out and fold the fabric so my "cut on fold" pattern pieces (which is pretty much everything) will work. Is there a most effecient way to do this? Or do I need to cut everything out in a single layer? All of the pieces definitely need the "print" to be going in the right direction. No upside-down flowers here! (The shirt is Simplicity 4059)

If it matters, the Cut-On-Fold pieces are:
--Bodice Yoke Back
--The body of the shirt (front & back below the yoke)
--the sleeves
Basically everything but the collar & cuffs.

(Interestingly enough, when I bought the fabric, the image on the Hancock website was actually oriented the other way. They've since rotated it so smart people will notice these things! LOL)

Thanks!!

When I have fabric like that, I make a muslin so I have a "whole" pattern piece and don't have to fold the fashion fabric.

If you also need to consider where those growing flowers fall on the pattern piece, then laying it out single layer is safest. If that's not an issue, you can probably get enough fold space by opening out the entire yardage, then bringing the two cut ends of the fabric to meet in the middle.
