Fiery gowns are highly scripted gowns that were introduced at the Great Auction of 2016 and have been released in limited quantity since then.

Analyze

You analyze your elesine bliaut and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions.

The creator has also provided the following information:

This elesine bliaut will react to fiery spells being cast at it and transform into a fiery gown!
While in this state it has ambient messaging.
Verbs:  TURN, PULL, PUSH, TICKLE, WAVE, SHAKE, SASHAY, and RUB.

It is fully alterable, but the fabric form must remain actual fabric.  The fiery form is also alterable, and the on-fire description (long and show) can make reference to the gown being on fire.

When altering gowns, please keep in mind that the messaging references a long, full skirt.  Accordingly, these pieces should NOT be altered to have short/tight/fitted skirts.  Also, anything that resembles a sheath dress is not appropriate for this gown.

The flame color may also be customized.  There's more room than the traditional 15, so color descriptions needn't be one word
only, but let's keep it reasonable.  "Azure and silver" = Okay. "Gold-hearted scarlet" = Okay.
Brightly luminescent absinthe green-tinged aquamarine and cerulean = Too much.  Exercise common sense!

CURRENT SETTINGS:
Normal dress:  a midnight blue elesine bliaut stitched with runes among the weft and weave
Show of normal dress:  The execution of the bliaut's design exploits the unique weave of the elesine, slanting narrow wedge-shaped panels diagonally across the fabric to play the triaxal pattern against itself.  As ambient light strikes the metallic electrum threads, a prismatic array of colors ripples over the silk, enhancing the depth of the midnight blue hue reminiscent of rainbows arcing over a star-studded night sky.  The effect is supported by coruscating elemental runes, patterned across the sleeves, neckline, and hem.

On Fire dress:  a midnight blue elesine bliaut sheathed in roiling rainbow flames
Show of On Fire dress:  Vibrant and untamed, ripples of rainbow-hued flame roil just over the surface of the elesine, fitful as they chase the threads of electrum in the weave.  Along the sweeping neckline and billowing sleeves of the bliaut, tendrils of prismatic flames dance and surge, cascading over the midnight blue in undulating waves that sink into the deep folds of the voluminous skirt.  Scintillating motes of silver flare here and there, mere embers that escape only to die breathlessly on the air.

Flame color:  prismatic rainbow-hued


You get no sense of whether or not the bliaut may be further lightened.
