Hi all, I have a question... I have a dress that belonged to my step-grandmother, which she had owned since the 1940s. I'm not sure of the material, I just know that it is very light and is not cotton. My stepmom and I were wondering what would be the best way to clean it-it is slightly wrinkled since it's been in storage for such a long time, and there are perspiration stains on the underarms. What would all of you recommend for cleaning vintage clothing? I don't usually take my clothes to the dry cleaner, and so I'm not sure if they would be the best at handling vintage fabric. Obviously we want to make sure that no harm will come to it, as it meant a lot to my grandmother for her to keep it this long and it means a lot to us. I apologize if there have been similar topics like this; I did a search but couldn't find what I was looking for. If I can I will post of a picture of it... it really is one of the most lovely dresses I've seen. It's dark brown with a white flower pattern, with a matching belt. It has shoulder pads and a low v-neck, and it bunches up on each hip (sorry for my non-technical terms ). We have pictures of my grandma and grandpa with my grandma wearing the dress when she was my age, and a picture of my stepmom wearing the dress when she was my age. It fits me very well and I would like to be able to wear it too.
