How should I get the wrinkles out of this dress? It has been sitting in a box for the past few months so it’s pretty wrinkly. I was thinking of taking it to get dry cleaned but it doesn’t really need to be cleaned and I’m worried about it getting ruined. My mom has a steamer and told me I should try that. I googled a few things and people are saying it’s ok to do as long as you hold the steamer a few inches away from the tulle. They are also recommending hanging it in the bathroom with the shower running but this dress is just too wrinkly for that to work. I just want to know if anyone has had any personal experience steaming tulle (or getting wrinkles out another way) because I don’t want to ruin the tulle or cause it to lose anything.
Just in case the picture isn’t clear, it’s only one layer of tulle that creates the skirt. It looks like a lot because the sash bunches it up so much when it’s tied on the hanger.
