Reducing sparkle on fabric

I bought a costume and the fabric is a black polelyester/spandex and sparkles of glitter on the outside. It’s a bit too much sparkle for my liking. Is there any way to minimize and soften the appearance of the glitter?

    Hi Travis,
    Is there any way you can post a picture? If it is what I think it is washing a few times should take it down a bit. If it is sequins then you have to remove them individually. Most sparkle fabrics will loose a lot of their sparkle when washed.
    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the reply. Here’s a picture of the robe:

    Is there a specific way to wash something like this? To prevent damage, shrinking, etc.
    thanks for your help!
