Tools of the Trade - The Tailors Ham

The tailors ham is a sturdily padded ham shaped cushion for pressing curves and seams of garments. We use ours all the time for pressing bust seams and curving wool and felts so that the fabric molds around the body smoothly.

Ours is plaid on one side and white on the other and feels as tough as a real ham, available to buy from Jaycotts here.  The Sleeve rolls are also really handy for proper pressing of seams.
