- pillows or pillow inserts sized 16x16", 18x18" or 20x20"
- knit sweaters or menswear shirts
Dress Pillow Insert
Gather your materials, then slide the sweater or shirt onto a pillow insert in a similar manner to dressing a torso.
To ensure a crisp, professional look, align the arms of the sweater or shirt with the top corners of the pillow insert.
Fold and Tuck Arms
Once arms are firmly positioned along sides of pillow inserts, gather the sleeve in your hand and tuck each arm inside itself. You want a clean arm opening free of bunching or stretching.
Tip: Folding the arm in creates a clean, crisp line along the upper sides of the pillow and ensures fabric remains firmly and neatly stretched across front and back.
