Sorry , not the best picture but gives you the idea. The fabric was dyed and painted with rust. I loved it just as it came out of the dye bath. I saw a very fancy lady wrapped in a lovely gown added a ruffle at the bottom and used a vintage (tractor?) copper gadget, with vintages buttons to hang the piece. Very Vogue:) I may in the future add gold or shinning glass bead work to define the gown more.
