Good move Lady de la Warr after my experience with black velvet at the dry cleaners, I will be cleaning the velvet garb in same manner, spot cleaning, shaking, repeat.  A garb maker at the Loch Norman Highland Games suggested Dryel, eventually I'm gonna grab some velvet, run it through with Dryel BEFORE it's made into something beautiful to test the fabric.

Dryel - what a great idea! I even have some.

I'll have to try it on something non-critical. Like maybe my purse. It's velvet.........and black.

Hmmmm....................

Thanks ladies!

Incidentally, the gown looks beautiful again. I managed to get all the dried mud out of the hem - and went over the bodice lightly with a damp cloth both with and against the nap. Fluffed it up some and got all the "lines" out of it. So it looks great  - I think I'm ready for next Saturday!

Say it isn't so m'Lady!!! What tragic plight occured to the green dress?  You didn't take it to the Dry Cleaners I took the black velvet skirt to did you?   ???

Uhhh...........yeah. Something like that.

Let's just say the "velvet" wasn't really velvet. It was some sort of polyester backing with the "velvet" GLUED on. So when they tried to clean it the "velvet" just started peeling off in sheets. It's a wreck. I cannot believe someone would take all that time to make that gown - using a dry cleanable brocade to boot - and use such substandard material for the rest. Unbelievable. But yeah - it's ruined and irretrievably lost unless I take it apart and replace all the velvet - which is basically the whole gown.

Incidentally the brocade is just fine so I may just go out and buy some green velvet and try my hand at remaking it. I'm sure I can do the skirt, it's the bodice I'm a little iffy on. That will be a real challenge. I might be able to do it if I take a pattern off the old one. The only thing is I'll have to figure out where I can have the grommets put back into the bodice as I have NO idea where to to take it to get that sort of thing done.

So yeah..........it's toast.

I have a grommet setting and the big grommets so you get the bodice done and I'll put the grommets in for you.

Master James - you are awesome my friend!!

I am going to try to have the dress done for July 4th weekend - so I may have to make a trip out to see you for this. I'm going to GLMF for the 4th weekend - and I am down to only one gown - which will NEVER do in the heat (ewww gross).

I have fabric swatches on the way as we speak - I may even have them for Saturday so you all can help me choose. Once I make the choice I'll have the fabric either overnighted or priority mailed (I cannot find what I want locally) so I can get busy and get it done

So if I can have this bodice done in time do you think we can take care of it in time?

That will not be a problem as it only really takes about 10 minutes to do it.  You get it done and I can do it.
