I think you did a fabulous job!!!...in fact, I think yours looks better than the one on DROPS, because the colour is nicer, and the buttons they use in the original makes the whole thing look a bit frumpy. The way you did it makes the top part look more corset-like, which seems more flattering.
As for wearing it, I also vote for slim black pants and the crochet belt, if not something wider. This'll give it a nice empire waist Ooh, I'm going to have to make one now...it's so pretty!!
