    instructions, if anyone needs them :)




    Stand to one side of the shirt. Imagine a line that runs from the middle of the shoulder furthest away from you to the bottom hem. Then imagine another line exactly halfway inbetween the top of the collar and the bottom hem. Pinch the shirt at the point where those lines intersect.

    Then follow the first line up to the shoulder seam and grab the shirt there with your other hand. From the shoulder seam, fold the shirt in half so that the shoulder where you grabbed it meets the bottom hem and grab that hem too (so that you're holding the shoulder seam and the bottom hem together.)

    The first hand should be hidden by the shirt at this point. Still firmly holding the bottom hem and shoulder together, pull the hidden hand out from underneath towards you. Then fold the loose arm underneath.

    Phil,
    That is an informative post. I used to send out t-shirts and someone asked me WHY I folded them all like that and I told them it was because that was how I was taught in the garment industry. LOL. Well this is "pertnear" the same way only it looks quicker. I sent it to our engineer for future reference in the costing dept. We don't do a lot of t-shirts but have occasionally and we have a few similar products that this might help with.

    Thanks! ;) :)

    Heck, I would give my wife a heart attack if I should fold my shirts! :D I just toss them in my drawer[most of the time] if I do not forget and leave them on my bed!! :D :D

    I don't have the room to just toss everything in a drawer, so I have to fold my T-shirts; but I fold, then roll the undershirts to make even more room. Been thinking about rolling the regular T-shirts, too, because I'm having trouble getting the drawer open and closed. Comes from buying all those BOC T-shirts.

    Well that beats all I ever seen. If you need instructions on folding a Tee shirt, you just might be a redneck. :D

    I fold mine just like they taught us in the Army, it makes more room. If I am in a hurry, leave them in the basket by the dresser. Bet ya can't guess which one gets more use...lol
