What materials did you use? The fashion fabric is teal colored Taffeta, I used rigilene boning in the bodice, the lining is "Gatsby" cotton fabric by Makower, and I used batting in the cups. If you want to read more, I blogged it here:

What are you most proud of? The bodice was obviously the most difficult part, but I'm also totally in love with the skirt. I skipped the skirt that came with the pattern and used By Hand London's Elisalex pattern instead.
