I would take it back to the lady who did the alterations and ask for her help.  Say you tried doing what she said and it hasnt worked.  She will probably have a professional steamer too and will know if this will damage the dress in any way.

Could you steam it from the inside to get the wrinkles out of the satin instead? (i.e. turn the garment inside out and then steam)

mine had wrinkles in it when I took it home. 8 months later those wrinkles were still there. I totally forgot to steam the dress, oops! CAll the lady and see what she suggests since you did what she said and it’s nto working. Maybe she can steam it at her place.

I’d be concerned about steaming it yourself–some fabrics don’t respond well. Hang it up int he shower and shower in there a few times. It’s more gentle. That’s how i got my veil de-crinkled, anyways.

That’s a great idea!

Just had a thought. What about emailing/calling Watters directly? You would hope their customer service would know the best way!

I second ejs4y8’s tip.  Hanging it in the bathroom and having a super steamy shower in there would be my suggestion.  just make sure it isn’t leaning against anything (it should be hanging free) otherwise, the water will condense there and you could get water marks.

Downy Wrinkle Releaser spray!!  Works WONDERS!  Spray on, stretch the wrinkles out, and let dry!

I would just take it somewhere (a tailor or dry cleaner) to get steamed.  It’ll probably cost around $25.  I definitely wouldn’t try to do it myself!
