6 gore skirt thoughts

Ok I've moved onto my teal section of the SWAP. Its a very dark teal. I've cut out some wide leg pants (my TNT) and the proceeded to try to get one of the Loes Hinse Gore skirts out of the remaining fabric, and after 20 mins it is apparent that it ain't gonna work.
Then I recalled that I bought this same fabric (a drapey rayon????) in navy as well, so I had a mad thought. 'what if I cut out the 6 gore skirt, and 6 godets, 3 each in teal green and navy and alternate them'. What do you think? I have probably got enough of the navy to just make the 6 gore skirt all in navy.

Here's some similar ideas I saved from an old Boston proper catalogue, though try to imagine navy/teal alternate gores (and godets).
