What materials did you use? Rayon challis and wooly nylon serger thread

What are you most proud of? I think I bought this rayon challis for $2-2.50/yd, so this top cost me way under $10. I LOVE making a fun, inexpensive top with such great swing and flutter as I walk.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you make the Innie-Outie Seams with a decorative serger thread, be sure to make samples so you get the stitch length and tension the way you want it. This pattern would also be pretty made in the conventional manner in a solid, maybe a silk crepe de chine or a handkerchief linen.
