Has anyone here ever done, or heard of, this? I have a rayon satin 1930's wedding gown that, gasp!, I shrunk when I laundered it. I "knew" I was taking a risk washing it, but I've had rayon lingerie before that was washable, and this looked like the same grade or type of rayon... Nonetheless it has shrunk (not a lot, but enough!). In researching a way to "fix" this, I read several items that said if you re-wash a fabric that has shrunk (wool, rayon, etc.), using hair conditioner, you may be able to unshrink it. I assume the hair conditioner relaxes the fibers? You're supposed to then dry it flat and gently stretch it as it's drying. The fabric on this gown is sturdy and seemed to not have suffered any ill effects other than the shrinkage from washing. I'm wondering if I should give it a try? It's cut on the bias, so I don't think it would need a lot of stretching to restore it to its original dimensions. Or just sell the dress as a tinier size--LOL.... But the shrinkage altered the lovely, drapey intention of the bodice, and I'd really like to get it back as closely as possible to its original lines. If anyone has any other tip for unshrinking a shrunken garment, I'd welcome them! Thanks much in advance!
