Pre wedding dress care
This is my second marriage and have purchased a beautiful dress second hand. It is a halter neck bodice made of a shinny satin-like fabric with beads and a tulle over satin skirt. The tulle has a one inch satin hem at the base of the tulle at the floor level.The bodice needs to be altered and the tulle skirt is wrinkled and will need to be ironed. The tulle is scallop-gathered with satin rosettes at the base of the zipper and sit on the rear end area. There are no care instructions indicating what the tulle layer is made of and I need to know how to get the wrinkles out. I think the satin is actually polyester and the tulle is soft and shinny and my be a synthetic also. How can I determine what the different fabrics are?
