flattened chiffon roses on prom dress

Posted by tearose21 (My Page) on

Is there a way to "puff up" roses made of chiffon on a chiffon dress that appear to have been flattened during the packing and shipping process? I am guessing putting water on them would not be a good idea? How about steaming it?
Thanks for any help,

I would take it to a dry cleaner and ask them if they have any thing that they can use to spray some steam directly onto each rose.
If they're not busy, maybe they could do it right while you are there. Bring it home and then hang it so it gets plenty of air.
Let us know what you decide to do and how it works out
