Well, if you have a Swedish style ironing board that doesn’t have a tip small enough for ironing shoulder seams, what do you do??? You use your hand!!! Here’s Mattieu ironing a blouse shoulder. Thankfully I found out that he pads his hand with a small towel. I’ve seen women turn hot food with bare hands, but I was going to be dumfounded at skin tough enough to withstand the continuous heat of an electric iron.
