Caring For Mesh

Mesh is a colorful, glamorous, sheer synthetic fabric that often incorporates beads and/or sequins.  It has a moderately crisp drape that falls away from the body in wide cones.  Use alone or under or over a second fabric to make fitted, semi-fitted, or loose-fitting styles of blouses, dresses, costumes, and evening wear.  Drycleaning is strongly recommended.

  • fabric is one-sided
  • does not stretch
  • inner constructions may show from the outside
  • won't hold a crease
  • does not unravel
  • durable and strong
  • long-wearing
  • subject to snags
  • resists abrasion
  • resists wrinkles and creases

Suggested care:
