Black & White, Long Halter Neck, fabric ACETATO
Made by Italian Label List
As the label didn’t say DRY CLEAN ONLY I purchased the dress.
(I NEVER BUY CLOTHES THAT HAVE TO BE DRY CLEANED ONLY). The dress got soiled when on the dance floor as the style was that which trailed the floor. I tested the fabic first as to ‘colour-run’ by first soaking in a very weak solution of washing powder in a bucket the very bottom of the dress. All was well! No colour run at all. I then placed the dress in a large wash bag and put it in my front loader washing machine on a ‘delicate’ wash. To my horror some of the black ran! I am so shocked as I wouldn’t have expected this fabric or Label to do this. Can you advise me what I can do to rectifiy the problem? Is there any thing I can put on the fabric? I did purchase the dress while overseas in Cyprus. My husband is working there and is going to get me the details of the shop that I purchsed the dress from so that I can inform them of the problem. Any advise would be much appreciated.
