What is Silk?

Silk has always been a highly prized cloth since it was first obtained thousands of years ago in China. Perfectly natural and breathable, it is considered the ‘queen of the fabrics’ and comes in a wide variety of textures. Silk is generally used in textiles and is one of the most popular choices both for evening dresses and casual wear – all because of its look, feel and hand. Silk cloths are not only lightweight, but also resilient and strong. Floral silks are everybody’s favourite when summer comes around, with a choice of floral prints available for any taste and style. Tiny blossoms, sprawling bouquets or large flowers – there is a bright future for this fashion trend.

Silk Jacquard Fabric

Silk jacquard is a silk 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. Silk jacquards come in various textures and finishes. Basically, any silk fabric with a woven pattern is called jacquard. They are available both in tone-on-tone and contrast designs and are most suitable for lighter apparel.

How to Sew with Silk Jacquard

Silk jacquard, as well as many other lightweight woven fabrics, is quite tricky to sew. Due to its slippery nature, 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 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 silk pins. You may also use weights to keep it in place.
  3. Sharp scissors are a key to success. We recommend using special scissors for cutting silk.
  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. Silk fabrics are ok with ironing, but they 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.
