How to Fold a Button-Down Shirt

Master this technique for a neatly packed suitcase or perfectly appointed closet.
The Martha Stewart Show, February 2012
  1. Button the shirt (except for the cuffs) and place facedown on a flat surface with the arms out to the sides.
  2. Take one arm and fold it over the back of the shirt, bringing half the body of the shirt over.
  3. Fold that same arm back on itself and down at an angle.
  4. Repeat on other side.
  5. Bring the shirttail halfway up the back, then fold the bottom half once more to meet the shoulders.
  6. Flip over and smooth out any creases.
