Keep the Crinkle in your Skirt


If you are like me, you love to wear cool, comfortable, cotton, crinkle skirts.  But as we all know, once you wash those skirts, the crisp crinkles are gone. This is a really easy, and very frugal, way to keep those crinkles so that your skirts always look like brand new.  

-After you wash your skirt, hang it on the line using 3 clothespins, with the waist line scrunched up close together. 
-Tightly twist the skirt lengthwise while it’s wet.  
-Using a piece of twine or cotton string, tie the top end around one clothespin. 
– Loosely wind the twine or string around the length of the twisted skirt and
 tie together at the bottom.  
My skirts usually take a day or two to dry, depending on how warm it is outside.  But when dry, simply unwind the twine or string, give the skirt a little shake, 
and your skirt will be crinkled back like new.
And the best news……no ironing!

  1. Hi, love your blog and especially that you're Christians. The skirts look great. I usually just tie mine in a knot for several ours then carefully hang it to finish drying. Have a great day!

  2. Thanks for the positive feedback! We hope to get out some ideas to help others with this blog, and love knowing that we have Christian readers. If you have any ideas for subject matter, let me know and I will do my best to get the info out there!
