The stiffness of crinoline fabric adds fullness to a skirt or dress, but this light fabric is not resistant to wrinkling. Crinoline can be made of different fabrics, such as nylon, polyester or cotton, and must be unwrinkled carefully so the material is not damaged or scorched.
Things You'll Need
- Ironing board
- Pressing cloth
- Clothes hanger
Lay the crinoline fabric out on an ironing board. Run your hands over the fabric to smooth out as many wrinkles as possible.
Heat an iron to the lowest temperature setting. Place a pressing cloth over the crinoline.
Run the iron slowly back and forth over the pressing cloth to remove the wrinkles from the crinoline. Keep the iron moving at all times. If the crinoline item has multiple layers -- as is often the case with slips that go under a dress or skirt -- iron one layer at a time.
Lift the pressing cloth periodically while ironing and smooth over the crinoline with your hands. Move the pressing cloth to another wrinkled part of the crinoline and continue ironing.
Repeat this process until all the wrinkles are gone.
Hang the crinoline fabric from a clothes hanger to let it cool down and prevent more wrinkles from forming.
