The pattern on jacquard dresses is physically woven into the fabric itself, not printed on top. This provides a high quality construction and colors that do not fade over time. Some patterns feature bold and rich colors and others geometric shapes to florals and beyond. Creating these dresses is complex, and experience and knowledge is required to set up the weave loom properly. As a result they can be more expensive than standard weave bandage dresses. All are made of 90 percent rayon and a 10 percent nylon and spandex blend. Rayon has silk like qualities and so provides sheen and some shimmer. Nylon and spandex work to give the dresses flexibility, this makes them comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Overall they are thick, sturdy and with some stretch and will mould your shape, creating curves like shape wear. To pull off one of these colorful dresses opt for a neutral pair of heels and understated jewelry.
