Hand Washed a Dry Clean Only Item and the Colour Ran

I decided to hand wash a 100% silk maxi dress and the black within it has run into the cream (in patches). Is there any way to spot clean the stains? Please help as I love this dress! Thanks

Try the dry cleaner. If he can't fix it, it's history.

You might try to gently bleach out the black stains with hydrogen peroxide. Leave the black areas dry, so the bleach won't run into the black, and try to bleach out the cream areas.
