As example, a few dresses I've done recently. I hit a good half price day at the thrift store and scored three pink/orange themed garments. The first was a pink and orange narrow-striped skirt, which got turned into a dress on its own, trimmed with rickrack and a flower applique. The second, a butterfly print, was a dress pretty much all on its own, but I added a border and applique heart made from the striped fabric. The third garment, an oversized orange-and-white print skirt, got turned into 2 dresses, and teamed up with the ruffle from the butterfly print dress.
By the time I got done, I didn't even have enough scraps left for potholders. That's saying something.
This time around, I actually have a little bit of each of the blue fabrics left. I see a series of marine-themed potholders in my future.
