I took an old prom dress (10+ years old) and paired it with an asian print to get this grow a bag I made for the Buy Nothing Day swap.

Here it is all opened up for maximum hauling from the yarn store! (oops thatwasn't really in line with the whole buy nothing day theme was it?)

I like the idea so much I made one for myself too except the fabrics are reversed so the print shows and the solid is hidden.

Unique concepts and the combination of prints and style give is a very retro almost 40's look to it.

Are the layers held up with buttons, snaps or some other method and then let down?

The tutorial can be found here:

She used velcro on the tutorial but loops and buttons in her first example piece.  I used ribbon loops and buttons. It secure the buttons so they didn't rip the fabric I sewed another regular button to the inside before adding the lining to help bear the stress. You can let down the layers by un-buttoning them.
