The most important thing is to be able to see the pattern clearly when you are cutting out.
It is much easier to cut the fabric as a single layer, right side up. Print two copies of the pattern and after cutting out, turn one set over. Tape the fronts together.
If your fabric is wide you can place the pieces lined up to the checks, side by side. If narrower then just work it out so that the side seam, say at hip level, is on the same stripe of the pattern.
You will have to decide where the centre back seam and centre front should come and what looks best. When sewing, pin seams very carefully at right angles to the edge, lining up the pattern and use a lot of pins to stop the fabric shifting. Sew over the pins, slowly using a sharp needle in your machine.
This original pattern does not include cutting out layouts or a guide to fabric requirements. All later patterns include all the features of any other commercially available pattern.
