Hi there!

I got some nice fabric today, it's basically old bed linen  Roll Eyes and I'd like to make a dress of it but I don't know what the name could be.

the bottom should look like that http://www.jcarolinecreative.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/howtos/peasantskirt_med.jpg but with layers, not really just the different colours sewn together...

and the top should look something like that http://media.laredoute.fr/intl/Products/picture/3/324159678_0001_PP_1.jpg

any idea how that would be called and what I can google for?

you can't see the neckline too good because of her hair but this is what I am looking for!

I had a dress like that once, sort of...it was in the 80's, and I was a kid, so I can't help you with names, but to re-create it, you'd sew a solid base dress, fitted or A-line, and then add your tiers to it, spaced however you want.  This is how my dress, and most similar ones I've seen, have been made.

Hope that helps!
