Ironing

If you are planning to wear your designer blouse again on any occasion, you might have to iron it to remove creases. But while ironing at home, you need to be a little careful as high heat can ruin the delicate fabric and embroidery. Always set the temperature of the iron according to the fabric of the outfit. Before that turn your designer blouse inside out and do a small patch test on a corner. If you see any damage, then set the temperature at its lowest. If you want to iron without doing this, make sure you place a light fabric on the surface. It will absorb excess heat and also prevent the zari or any other embroidery from getting spoilt.

Folding

Folding the wedding outfit correctly is very important. Wrong folds can damage the work of the designer blouse. Before folding, it is advisable to place sheets of tissue papers or soft fabrics between the folds so that the sequins, zari or any other embroidery does not rub against each other or get tangled. Also, keep changing the folds from time to time to prevent the fabric from tearing at the creases.

Storing

Improper storage can spoil your outfit completely. Always wrap the outfit in an unbleached cotton cloth or muslin and store it in a place that is cool and dry, away from direct sunlight. If possible store the dress in a box made from acid-free materials. If you are storing it in a cupboard, make sure it is moth free.
