1940s Rayon Crepe Dress Update

Remember my haunted dress? It shrunk when I washed it. I searched the interwebs for a fix and one site suggested that steaming it would relax the fibres, and the jolie robe would regain it’s shape.

Guess what? It totally worked! It was actually pretty amazing to watch the length grow by five inches almost instantly.

So while I wont be washing it again, it’s always good to discover (and share) a new vintage clothing care tip.
