Hi, my name is Marti. I'm coming to you on behalf of expertvillage.com. Today I'm going to show you how to iron a skirt. Linen is a great fabric. It is wonderful in the summer. Often times those vacations getaways people wear linen. This is an interesting skirt because it has a little box pleat here that kicks out to the front. I'm going to pull my pleat over to the side and press this seam here. I'm running my iron right along the seam. Once that is done, I'm going to take this my box pleat, fold it how I want it and place it where I want it.
