I used to iron my dad’s shirts when I was a kid. I wasn’t Cinderella or anything. In fact, my mom did everything for us. Very spoiled. But I do remember ironing countless dress shirts. My dad taught school and this was back in the day when teachers had to look respectable. I figure I can knock out a dress shirt in under 5 minutes.
I was perusing some sewing blogs and came across this post at A Fashionable Stitch. She included a video on how to iron a mens shirt.
How to Iron a Shirt
I could watch this guy iron all day. And listen to him talk. Is it just me?
Where was I? I think it’s a great video on a basic skill. I know that I ironed differently from this. I will take his advice with not creasing the collar and starting on the sleeves. I already knew about doing up the top button.
Now my husband irons his own shirts, because he is awesome, but maybe I will try this out and time myself. See if I still have it.
