    Image 10-finished-hamsPressing as you go always makes garments look more polished. A tailor's ham is used when pressing curved seams, such as a bust or a hip seam. You can also use a tailor's sausage to slip into a sleeve to press open that hard to reach seam in order to press it flat.  Kristiann Boos, of Victory Patterns made this tailor’s ham and sausage nifty tutorial and free pattern for UK blogger, Tilly of Tilly and the Buttons.
