    My wedding dress was made of peau de soie and was lined with a cloth like paper lining. I was married in 1964. Later my dress was in a basement and it got flooded. I thought it was ruined and never did anything about it. Since my 50th anniversary I became brokenhearted about it and I am researching for a way to save it. Is there somethin I can do about the gown? Can you please help.

    • The only thing I can recommend is that you take it to a professional fabric conservator in your area. It’s unlikely that they will be able to save it after all this time, but you can but try
