It was in top notch condition, I just thought it could do with nip and a tuck in order to discover its full potential as a play thing (gosh I sound like a pushy glamour model agent!)
It's true, I don't iron. If something requires ironing then I don't purchase it. Advances in materials have given rise to non-iron items, Buster's school uniform trousers are just such an item. I minimize creases by not leaving items in the washing machine or tumble dryer when the cycle has finished or I hang things flat or on hangers when they're drying.
Nobody has ever commented on the creased nature of my clothes (maybe they're just too polite) but quite frankly I don't care enough about other people's opinions to stand for hours on end ironing items that will probably be creased in drawers and cupboards or by unthinking family members within minutes of my doing so.
I know that ironed clothes look and feel better for about 30 seconds and if something is particularly creased and it's a special occasion then I will drag the ironing board out, but on a day to day basis the only things that get ironed are Mr Right's work shirts (although most of those are of the non-iron variety now anyway) and he does those as he's quite particular about how they're done and with my lack of ironing experience I wouldn't want him to wear something he wasn't completely happy with would I?
