I used turmeric and a couple tea bags to get this colour, and sadly, couldn't get a very good picture of it. It's really quite nice..a a bit mottled, with parts being lighter or darker depending on how the fabric took the dye.
The fabric was a large beige curtain I found on Freecycle.... but I really didn't want a beige skirt. (BORING!)
Here's a great site for what dyes can be found in your home, or at least the supermarket. Try it-- let me know how it turns out!
