She wore blue velvet
I bought this blue velvet 60s dress off Trademe before Christmas. It took a couple of weeks to arrive and when it did I was away for Christmas. This meant it sat for two weeks scrunched up in a courier bag. It was really creased down the front when I opened it but I managed to get quite a few of the creases out by hanging the dress up in the bathroom when I had a shower. There is still a big crease down the front though. I'm not sure how to get it out because I don't have a clothes steamer. I guess I'll have to take it to a dry cleaner but I'm scared they might ruin it if they don't have a lot of experience with vintage clothes.
