How to alter girl's skirt pattern

I am using McCall's 6830, view F as a basis. It is a circular type girl's skirt with elastic in the back waistband.
I have two patriotic prints I want to cut into sections, alternate the fabrics and resew to make the skirt.
Would it be appropriate to have eight sections, or should it be an odd number, or does it matter?
It would definitely be easier to use eight sections.
I have seen skirts done both ways.
Any opinions?

I don't think it matters, except that it's going to be easier with eight!

The only reason I can think of to do an odd number is if you don't want a seam at the center front.

Thanks!
Since I am winging it, I just wondered if there were any set rules.
Since this is something that won't be worn many times, I think I will use eight section and shift the placement on the waistband so that one section is centered.
Incidentally, for those of you who sew for little girls, this is a very versatile pattern. Not only versatile, but fast and easy. With the back elastic waist, no need for zippers or buttons.
