Dry Cleaning: Do I have to?

I have a lovely J.Crew dress that is 93% cotton and 7% spandex, and it says dry clean only. This confuses me (like, since when does cotton and spandex need to be dry cleaned?).

J.Crew tends to say most everything they make is dry-clean only, so I'm wondering if that is a move on their part to make their clothes seem to be of higher quality/exclusive than they actually are (or something along those lines).

If you had a mostly cotton dress with a little bit of spandex, would you dry-clean it? I don't think it's necessary, but I'm not a professional. Am I just being cheap?
