Hi, could anyone give me advice on the best sort of steam iron to get for dressmaking. My iron has packed up and I wish to get the most appropriate for the tasks in hand. Thanks.  Yours Les.

 

Yours,

It all depends. (post #36111, reply #1 of 2)

I love my Black and Decker Classic Iron.  I love the weight of it for natural fiber fabrics--wool especially.  The bridal shop that I contract with uses a Shark iron.  it's great for the synthetics and bridal laces.

I find a cordless iron very handy especially if it has an auto shut off.
