steam iron

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.

    It all depends.

    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.
