Ah, using up that stash feels sooo good! I made this maxi dress from a bunch of jersey left-overs and added a big piece of crepe for the skirt part. Since crepe can be quite see-through in the sunset, I built in an underskirt ;-) There is a full tutorial/how-to at my blog: Of Dreams and Seams
Really, the whole dress is just a bunch of rectangles put together! This is a neck holder version, and I also made a sleeves/straps version.
