I have a Southern Belle Organza Gown that I have lovingly designed. The organza silk gown is almost like a chiffon.
Unfortunately with silk is that this fabric does not last. I noticed recently that some of the silk fibres in the gown have split. It also stains easily.
One option that I was thinking was to make a replica, but making a replica each time when the fabric deteriorates is not only a nuisance, but is very very expensive, especially for this type of gown.
Does anybody know of how to protect silk from deterioration (other than blending silk with other materials), and keeping it from tearing easily and disintegrating away?
Is it possible to create a fine vintage garment of fine material that will last?
