When should I cut on a single layer of fabric?

Cutting Single Layers

Fabric is cut in single layers when there is a pattern to match (such as plaids) or it is difficult to control (such as chiffon). Make sure to cut one piece with the pattern tissue right side up and one with the pattern wrong side up so you end up with one piece for each side of the garment.
