Quart into pint-pot fail

I have a skirt pattern than requires 1.6m of 45" fabric. I have 1m of 1.36m Liberty Tana lawn with a one-way print. I have spent the evening cutting out duplicate pattern pieces and arranging them in every single possible way. I could do it with 1.1m by cutting the single back skirt into two, and doing the facing in a different fabric, which I would do anyway because a self yoke wouldn't work with the print. Unfortunately I don't that 10cm. Without it I think that I can do it with 1m by cutting the single back skirt into two, doing some natty little extra pieces on the front, and splitting the back yoke. That does not sound the quick and easy alternative to the top I originally intended to make, and there is a lot more potential for it to go wrong.

Alternatively, I could remember that Shaukat exists, and happily they aren't sold out. On the downside, this does turn what was a cheap top to a skirt costing twice as much. I shall decide in the morning.
