Hello, my name is Carol Hughes. I've owned and operated Custom Costumes and Tailor Made for 25 and 30 years. Today I'm going to teach you some basics in ironing. How to get wrinkles out of silk shirt. Well my preference is to start with a completely damp shirt. But if your shirt isn't damp then you may want to spray it with water. And proceed to press. Of course you start with a low setting for silk. And proceed around the top of the back and toward the shoulders of the front. Use a lot of steam or squirt it with water if you have a really bad wrinkle. Some irons have a squirt button where you can literally squirt water out of it. And that's a pretty neat feature, don't have it on this iron. Okay I usually do the sleeve after the yoke. This has kind of a bad wrinkle in it so we'll spray it with water. And after sleeves again we just start with the body of the blouse. And proceed around. Going in circles is a great way to get way to get out the multiple wrinkles in silk. Ah ha here's a bad one see if we can get that out. Good. And that's how you get wrinkles out of a silk shirt.
