Although the uniform depicted is the dress whites, the dress blues are folded and ironed exactly the same way. When ironing is completed and you turn the uniform right-side out and you should see that all creases EXCEPT the front middle crease and the three creases on the collar flap are turned inward, not out outward.
Can you iron your dress blues?
Dress blues are a dress uniform worn on formal occasions. Turn the shirt of the uniform inside out and lay it lengthwise on the ironing board. Iron the sleeves first by applying two strokes of the iron to each, and then spray a bit of starch on them before applying two more strokes to both.
Use a combination of water spray and steamed iron. Spray the water on the dress white uniform creases, then iron the creases in. Place your dress white jumper around the ironing board, inside out, and repeat the cycle, spraying some water on the uniform and then applying your steam iron.
