    I am afraid the situation is not going to be so easy. If the details are gone, burn tool or not, nothing you can do becasue there is no details to work with.

    Why don't you post the picture and we can have a better idea how bad?

    the over exposed areas cannot be totally white (eg. 255r 255g 255b)
    if it is then cannot do anything about it.
    unless you paint it in

    Should have check histogram while shooting, and if too much highligh, use EV- to underexpose. If shoot in RAW still can "under-develope", otherwise in PS can do limited corrections.

    well, the low down is to take another picture of the dress with its texture properly exposed, then paint the texture back into the spoilt picture.
    sigh.

    clone and heal...clone texture from areas where it exists, and blend it in...if textures are simple like fabric texture, can just heal the areas...

    How about if you try playing around with the shadow and highlights in Photoshop. If, like Ortega says, the white are not totally clipped at 255, 255 ,255, there is a chance to recover some of the detail back.

    actually, i tink the easiest way would have been to shoot properly....

    i mentioned burning if the extent of the highlights wasnt too blown out, it would have been a quick fix...

    but if its way blown, i tink digital merging will be one of the many options.... alternatively u can try masking out the area and pulling the levels and curves on it and see if it works...

    cheers
