I picked up my dress from the alterations shop yesterda, then took it to get pressed at the dry cleaners. The dry cleaners stated that they wouldn’t waste my money on having the dress pressed because of the style of the dress. Then they stated that it would just wrinkle back up in the bag anyways. It is the Roma by Maggie Sottero heavy beading corset top and pick up style skirt. However, there are still light wrinkles on some of the pick-ups, how do i get rid of these? Is there any “HOME” remedy that i could use? It does not look bad at all, but it’s not perfect. Let me know your recommendations.

Do you have a garmet steamer? I’d try that (as long as the material was safe to steam!).

Do you have a friend who has a steamer? I can’t think of anything else that would help, sorry!

Why didn’t the alterations shop do it for you?

One thing I have always done with wrinkled clothes/dresses/dance costumes is to hang it in the bathroom while you take a shower (leave the fan off if you can and it will get a bit steamier in there!). It will gently steam the dress and is usually pretty good at getting light wrinkles out – huge creases not so much. Try that and see if it works! It is free, so if have to use other means if that doesn’t get all the wrinkles out, you haven’t lost anything!

I agree with dance’s suggestiong but make sure that you have a clean sheet or something under it because you don’t want the dress to be dragging on the floor. After I brought my dress home from alterations, I had it hung up completely out of the bag so that it wouldn’t wrinkle.
