Default MY DRESS IS ON FIRE!!!

I bought a vintage 60's formal evening gown, but I don't think it is FLAME RETARDENT since they had not yet started doing that to clothing in the 60's.

What should I do? Is there some type of spray or something I can use to make it flame retardent? I would hate to have to jump overboard in a flaming dress, LoL.
I can see it now.... waiter bringing out the baked alaska, me running for cover....

HELP!

Christy

If you are truly concerned about this, then i would tell you to go to your local crafts store they most likely would have something, i would be very concerned that anything you would apply to vintage clothing might either change the color or ruin the dress all together. BTY the only clothing on the market today that is truly flame retardant is kids jammies!
