Once you’ve used the Tailor’s curved awl for your tailoring and dressmaking you’ll wonder what you ever did without it.
It’s a small tool, but very precisely engineered. The point is finely-tapered but rounded at the end so it won’t catch on fabric. It’s just right for slipping under a machine stitch to unpick top-stitching or to help pull through threads for hand-finishing. The rounded end of the handle fits into the palm of your hand and allows you to manoeuvre the curved end with speed and accuracy.
It’s also an indispensable tool for manipulating fabric under the presser foot of your sewing machine, or under the tip of an iron. It does so with far more accuracy than your fingers can – and with much less risk of harm too.
This tool is one you’ll want to keep immediately to hand by your machine or pressing station. Before long you’ll wonder what you did without it.
