So with the typical arrogance of a beginner in the sowing arts, I recentlly bought a beautiful dress from a thrift store in the hopes of altering to fit. The dress has a black satin bodice and a black and metalic gold brocade skirt. The alterations I made actually turned out great and I was hoping to wear it to a party this week, but when i tried it on in better light I noticed that the satin had a lot of very fine pulls that looked like flyaways. The actual strand is not pulled but the fabric does look a bit dulled in good light. I am guessing that this is caused by wear but I was wondering if there is any way to fix it or improve its look.
I’m sorry if this is a stupid/childish question but I have searched for an answer and came up blank.
