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. Now we are going to do the same thing on this pocket make sure your seam is facing the direction it's meant to be. What I mean by that is here is facing this direction there is a buckle and now it's facing this direction. You want it to be facing the direction that it's meant to be next; we are going to iron our fly. Again, I'm using my hands to guide my fabric now because this is blue jeans and I want a good starch on them. I'm going to pull them up onto the board as much as I can. I'm going to use my homemade starch; just give it a little shake before you use it. Give it a few seconds to absorb into your fabric and then starting from the foot of the leg, work your way up.
