More Ebay and a question

A lovely silk Regency gown.

After seeing the color of the gown above, I *think* the taffeta I already have will be okay but...

I have what I can only describe as dark pumpkin orange silk taffeta. I got it during the last sale. I have enough to make, I think, a robe in the style of the late 1790's, early 1800's. (A la, V & A, Patterns Of Fashion, pages 44-45) Is this color okay, though, for that time period? I've seen a lot of pinks, yellows, blues, and some greens but I have yet to see much in the orange color range. The dress above really is the first and it looks more brown to my eyes.
