Hi, I'm Marti. On behalf of expertvillage.com I'm going to share with you today how to press a pair of pants. We are going to be pressing a pair of blue jeans using starch. We've done the waistband,we are going to let that cool and while that is cooling, we are going to do our pockets. You want to make sure that underneath your pockets is flat. In this case, I'm going to give it a quick press underneath the pocket working along the seam lines here. I want to place my pocket down. See how the seam is all jumbled up? I'm going to pull it and give it a little tension as I iron to help straighten that up. That will help the line of the pant when we put it on. Starting on the seams and always work your seam lines first I'm going to come down the nose of my iron and come to this side.
