Hi, my name is Marti. I'm coming to you on behalf of Today I'm going to show you how to iron a skirt. The skirt that I have chosen today is a linen skirt which is a plant fiber. It requires a high heat but I also choose the skirt because it has some other details that we'll be addressing. First thing you want to do with any garment is turn it inside out because you want it to address the construction of your garment. That is what allows your skirt, pants, jacket to hang up appropriately. The first thing we are going to do is press our waist band pull your skirt onto your board have your iron hot with steam preferably. We are just going to go around your skirt and press down the waist band only.
