What is Jacquard?

Jacquard is a fabric with an intricate pattern woven into it. Such designs are produced on a mechanical loom named after the inventor Joseph-Marie Jacquard. Unlike jacquard patterns, prints are applied to the fabric after it is woven. Jacquards come in various textures and finishes. They are available both in tone-on-tone and contrast designs and are most suitable for lighter apparel.

How to Sew with Jacquard

Jacquard, as well as many other patterned woven fabrics, is quite tricky to sew. Due to its uneven surface, this fabric can be a real challenge for those who have just started their sewing lessons. There are several tips that can help you turn this wool & silk jacquard into a beautiful piece of clothing.

  1. Always prepare your fabric before cutting. Pre-washing might work, but it all depends on the type of fabrics – sometimes only dry-cleaning is allowed. The best strategy is to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines. Dry-cleaning helps seal the pigment and ensure the fabric is a uniform color.
  2. If you need to secure your fabric, opt for fine and sharp pins. You may also use weights to keep it in place.
  3. Mind the side and be careful with the pattern. Choosing a side for your project is a common thing with double-faced fabrics. Pay extra attention to details like pattern direction while cutting and sewing jacquard fabrics.
  4. If you are using a sewing machine for your project, do not forget to choose the correct machine foot and needle. If you are working by hand, use sharp needles and special threads from reliable thread suppliers.
  5. Pressing is quite tricky, too. Jacquard fabrics are ok with ironing, but some of them don’t work well with water as it can leave water spots. Always test your cloth before pressing! We also recommend pressing your fabric on the reverse side with some kind of protection, like cotton batiste. Or, you could also use a special iron shoe.
