When I looked at the fabric requirements on the back of the pattern envelope, it wasn't obvious to me where Fabrics 1, 2, 3 and 4 would be located on the jacket. So I looked at the pattern pieces, figured it out, and put the fabric numbers on the outline illustration.
I then started playing with colour placement until I found some that gave me the most balanced looked. Here is the result of that colour play. Click on the picture to see an enlarged view.
Astaire Suiting, which I carry in my online store. Here is the result.
I was also very tempted to make a Mondrian version a la Yves St Laurent by adding additional charcoal grey strips over the pieced seams.
I hope this has inspired you to look beyond the obvious when it comes to your pattern choices. If you don't have a computer program that helps with the process, old fashioned tracing and colouring is just as effective.
