Vodka. It sounds silly but professionals use it on garments that can’t be dry cleaned easily. It kills the bateria that causes the smell. If you are worried, put  a 50/50 mix of the cheapest (like plastic jug with a handlecheap) vodka and water and   spray with a spray bottle in an unseen area. I have always used straight vodka not mixed with water though. And I have never seen it leave a water mark. But to be safe, test as previously mentioned.

I would take it to a seamstress or dressmaker who specializes in altering/modernizing vintage gowns (which you will have to do anyway if you decide to wear it). They deal with vintage gowns all the time and will know what to do.

first of all, you need to find out what fabric it is. not all gowns are synthetic fabric. a seamstress will know
