Hi there, I'm Melody Mooney, and today I'm going to give you some tips on how to fold clothes, so let's get to folding a skirt. Now, I always suggest hanging up a skirt if you can, especially on the skirt hangers, just because it will help keep the line and the A-lines of the skirt, but if you have to fold them, let's say you're taking a trip or you want to store them, I'll show you how to do it. Okay, really simple. Get a flat surface, I always have a flat surface like my kitchen table or maybe your bed or the floor, just make sure that it's flat. I'm going to take the left side top and bottom and fold it over to the right side. Now I'm going to take the bottom and I'm going to fold it all the way up to the waistband of the skirt, just like so. Now I'm going to flip it over and fold it one more time so now I get a nice square from that skirt. Now if you do have it traveling, the minimum that you can fold it the better, but you could get those wrinkles out really easy with your travel steamer or your iron. You can also store it just like that. Okay, so there you have it, the proper way to fold a skirt!
