Professional tailors use a dauber for seam pressing. Make your own by cutting a strip of soft, woolen fabric, 3 to 4 inches wide and long enough to col in a tight 1- to 1 1/2-inch diameter roll. Then tie the roll together tightly with thread, string, or ribbon, Use the dauber like a brush–just dip one end in water and apply it to the areas where you want to press. Watch this video to see how it’s done.
