'Press as you go' is a good sewing policy. Often when pressing during garment construction I am only working on a small area. A small worktop ironing board or even a sleeve board takes up less room in the sewing room than a standard floor-standing board. Also, as the garment or soft furnishing grows, the volume of fabric surrounding the part I am pressing is better supported by the tabletop rather than falling of a standard ironing board.

When I am working on small pieces like doll clothes and baby dresses, I use a cute little child size ironing board and it sits right by my chair so convenient. I use a mini iron. Best idea I've had so far.
