I think it looks pretty also. I like the button detail around the neckline. ChristmasHills is correct, POLYESTER crepe might be harder to work with. Wool crepe would allow you to bring that drape to heel with steam. Perhaps if the drape were adjusted on you. Where there's too much fabric it could be nudged into the right shape on the body.

Polyester crepe would have been difficult to work with for this particular draping I think. Perhaps wool crepe would be more successful. It looks pretty though so I am sorry you are not so happy with it.

I like the color. Maybe you can do another more fitted.
