Just wanted to update you all. I took the coat to the cleaners and the desk clerk said she couldn't guarantee how it would come out, how the buttons would end up, blah, blah, blah. I deal poker for a living so I've got the gambler blood running through me. I decided that since the dress came out so well and since the lining on the coat didn't have any tears, I would wash that too. I took saran wrap and covered all the buttons, turned it inside out, and threw it in the washer on gentle cycle. I even put it in the dryer for about 10 minutes on low heat and then hung it up to contine drying. It came out really nice! All the spots came out and it's a beautiful outfit. Now, I also took an 80's white silk Ellen Tracy suit in that didn't come out good at all. I guess that one will be given to goodwill.
