Not a perfect match, but closer in RL than appears in the photos. Hard to see, but the lighter tone of the velvet IS exactly the same colour as the ribbons on the shoes (wandering around a huge fabric shop holding a shoe up against various bolts of fabric is almost, but not quite, as much fun as getting one's fellow sewers in the cutting table line-up fantasizing about an instore coffee bar with cute, topless waiters ... amazing how little one has to say to get somebody else's mind going in unexpected directions ***EVIL GRIN***)
And then I discovered a new shipment of satin brocades ... which means I'll have another vest in my collection once I psych myself up to play with the slippery stuff. :p
Will have to re-photograph tomorrow using daylight since the flash just isn't capturing the true colours ... the background is a bronze/dark plum, with the pattern woven in gold and bright violet.
