Greetings fellow Cruciverbalists.
I require the assistance of a smart parse please. :-)
Memsahib and I were competing this evening with our photocopies of the Friday Metro crossword in our local hostelry and one clue is as follows.
'Did some evening work perhaps' (7)
I had I?O?E?
I can only deduce IRONED but beggared if I can parse it. Any help greatly appreciated as we are into limbo land as to who has won.

Ironing- evens out he creases /garments
Ironed - smoothed/made even (evening work)
definition is 'works'
Evening; ironing - flattening
Just to clarify- answer is ironed. Ironing= evening; then past tense
