I bought some fabric at Joanns a couple of months ago. I don't think I have enough to make a skirt the length I want. I want to go back and buy more. Do I have to worry about it matching like when you buy yarn of a different lot #? Thanks.

Yes! Fabric has dye lots, too, but they don't have helpful numbers like yarn.
At the fabric store i work at if we have 2 smallish bolts of fabric the same fabric the same color on the end of the bolt, we will wrap them together. Someone will love the color on the outside, then we start unrolling and there isn't enough of that particular shade to do their project and we come upon the second, which will be a slightly different shade, then there won't be exactly enough there either, but they can't combine the two because when placed next to each other they look different.

That's what I suspected. Thanks!

Could you cut the skirt across the grain? Or maybe make a different style?

I can only use it one way. It has a pattern that can only go in right side up. But I think I found something that will work.
