Iron, tailor’s ham, and sleeve roll. For most sewing projects, an iron is a must to get a good finished product. A tailor’s ham (on the left) is used for pressing shapes like like sleeve caps and bust points. A sleeve roll (on the right) is used for ironing seems in sleeves and pant legs. The woolen plaid sides are for pressing heavier fabrics, the white cotton side is for lighter fabrics.
