The background is actually a denim blue. It's misted with gold sparkles and they're catching the light in interesting ways creating more of a burgundy look. The color isn't accurate but it does let you see the painted paisleys.
True to the reviews, the skirt is snug... on me... not on Millicent... so I'm waiting to fine tune the fit until it's a bit looser in the hips. That curve is not as smooth as I'd like and the waist needs to be smaller however, it's more of a fall than a summer skirt so I'll do that work in a few months. By then, I'll have lost my holiday fluff and spent some more time on the treadmill and it should be good. I'm pleased with how the skirt turned out for my second painted project.
