Tips for ironing a blazer
In Norvil, the ironing section plays an important role in giving the garment the final presentation we are looking for.
The fabric has an important influence on the easy ironing. Among our tailoring garments we can highlight the TRAVEL line, whose fabric has been subjected to a treatment that makes the suits much less wrinkled from the first wash, EASY CARE.
In addition, thanks to the finishing touch that we give in Norvil, all our tailoring models have a permanent shape stability throughout their useful life, so ironing will always be easier.
Our workshop team, made up of real professionals, explains how to iron blazers.
Before you start...
First of all, check the garment for any stains. This is to prevent that the heat of ironing leaves a permanent mark on the fabric.
If you also want to make good use of your iron, it is advisable to use distilled water, this also prevents the steam jets from soiling the garment.
It is important that the fabric is always well stretched out and to avoid damaging the fabric it is advisable to use steam jets in delicate areas such as seams.
To avoid shine, the correct way to iron is to press the iron evenly and not to slide it over the garment. If you also use a piece of cloth on top of it, the fabric will be even more protected.
A blazer is complicated to iron, it is better to iron the areas with wrinkles (back, elbows, front), as we explained above, the initial shape is given in the workshop.
Let's get to work!
The order of ironing depends on your preferences, but here we suggest one to guide you through the process:
➡️ You can start with the top. The lapels and collar do not need to be unfolded. The peak of the ironing board is the best place to iron this area, always softly and with the fabric well stretched.
➡️ Then you can continue with the front or the back. On the front, you can carefully unfold the flap to iron the back.
➡️ When ironing the pockets, the pressure should be light to avoid marks.
➡️ Regarding to sleeves it is advisable to iron only the middle part, if you press the edges, unwanted folds are formed. Using a dry towel folded inside the sleeve avoids wrinkles and strange shapes.
➡️ Finally, it is best to iron the cuffs with the tip of the iron on the inside to maintain their rounded shape.
