Pressing is the most important process in making your hand sewn items look more crisp and professional.
The Tailors Board has variety of flat surfaces, angles and curved edges that aid in helping to shape the garments seams to fit the body
The board is made of Oak which helps hold the heat.
To use the board first you will want to evaluate the seam in question and fit the seam to the shape
Standing the board on one end you will see two curves a large curve and a smaller curve:
Used for Sleeve Caps, armhole and arm side seams
Used for pressing tighter curves such as collars and small children’s clothes
Placing the board on the flat side you will see a long-curved edge
Long Curved Edge
Used for princess seams
Large Flat Surface
Used for pressing any flat surface
Standing the board at the other end, on what looks like a handle (medium curve) you will have two sharp points used for collars in a variety of ways.
With the flat surface face down, you now have a Point Press and a Medium Curve
Used for corner such as a pointed collar, square pocket or waistband. It allows you to iron all the way to the edge and allows you to press a nice long seam at the same time.
Medium Curve runs perpendicular to point press is used for pressing smaller, tighter curves such as a rounded collar.
