Ironing a shirt sleeve

When you iron a shirt, do you iron the seam of the sleeve facing towards the front or the back of the sleeve, and why?

You dont iron the crease facing or to the back. I'm not sure what u mean , You put the sleeve flat with the seam at one side and iron it.

I've watched the video but it doesn't say which way to face the seam of the sleeve,,,,,

I don't do ironing, so wouldn't have a clue, sorry!!!

it doesn't face forward or back it goes sideways. You simply press it flat.
Not sure if you are trying to wind us up or not.

the seam would run down the side of the arm, not too difficult lol

But the seam is about 7mm wide. Does that bit face to the front or the back when ironing it?

So is the seam in the middle of the sleeve when you're ironing it? That would put the crease in the wrong place....

Turn the shirt inside out, seam lies flat as an extension of the sleeve.

just don't try ironing =] wear it for a couple hours before you need to go out so the creases fade out

despite the fact i do this most of the time i still have an iron, and i'd go with turning it inside out as the guy said above =]

Good idea Phil. Doesn't the crease look funny then though, as it would be pointing inwards?

have always ironed them so that the crease is parallel to the seam.. undo the buttons on the wrist first though otherwise you don't get a perfect crease -

my old sergeant major used to say he could shave with my creases... ( helped that i put half a can of starch on each sleeve )

I would iron right up to, but not including the edge so I tend not to have a crease.
If I feel a crease is needed, then I do the above, then turn shirt right way round and then just put the crease in.
But 9 times out of 10 I go creaseless. http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn219/jumpingphil/thumbsup.gif
