Subject: Steaming vs. ironing

Hoping to get some advice from dressmakers. Is it OK to steam or iron a dress that has been stored for a while, flat, in a dress bag? The fabric is silk, or silk poly, with ruffles and crystals. I'm concerned about leaving water stains or puckering seams. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Steam would have been used in construction anyway, so as long as you're careful, you should be okay. Just keep the temperature low and use a tea towel or similar between the fabric and iron if you're really worried. (NT)Try inconspicuous spot firstThursday, December 17, 09:24:23am
