I recently bought a beautiful cotton filigree fabric that I planned on using for a dress. The part that really sold me on it was the gold metallic accent around the darker design elements of the pattern. I prewashed the fabric (like I always do) to prepare it for cutting and I found that a significant amount of the gold had flaked off in the machine Sad I guess I should have thought of this ahead of time, but it's too late now. Can anyone recommend a good way clean this fabric in the future without losing so much of the gold accent? Will dry cleaning be safe? I couldn't find any washing instructions for it.
