Velvet Dress Looks Shiny After Dyeing?

I have dyed a velvet dress. The colour is great, but it's gone really shiny and looks horrible now! Can I get rid of the shine?

Velvet is a very hard fabric to dye and get it right. Many times this can happen when you dye this type of fabric. All you can try to do is take it to a dry cleaner and have it cleaned a few times. This might help get rid of some of the shine. You can also try to wash it again to see what happens. I would not wash it too many times. But dry cleaning it could help out more if you want to give this one a shot.

If the shine is because the nap is "off" from the dye process, you can try steaming it in a shower or with a professional steamer and then using a new, soft toothbrush to "fluff" the nap. If that doesn't work, you can ask if you have an old-school dry cleaners, if they can fix it. Not one that sends out. But one that has services on site. Post back with updates.

If the fabric was polyester, the dye may have made it shiny and you cant do anything about it. Next time dye on a small swatch.
