Wedding Dress Coloring

My wedding dress is off white. It is a satin, I am assuming with polyester in it because it was only $300.00 twenty five years ago. It was never preserved but it has been in a cool, clean closet and looks like the day I wore it. My daughter is planning on having children in the next 2 years, God willing. I would like to make the dress into a Christening gown and quilt. It is Ecru, and I know that my daughter would love for it to be white. Is there anyway to lighten it or even bleach it to white? Any information you can give me will be appreciated. Thank you,

Hi Cindy,
It sounds like a great idea, quite heartfelt and meaningful! Unfortunately, it’s not possible to change the color of polyester fabric. Time to get creative. You could try an overlay of white organza, or maybe trim with lighter lace, etc.
best,
Jennifer
