WTH is up with Fabric.com???

I have been a really good girl in the fabric buying department...using what I have in the stash and not ordering on line, even deleting the sale emails from all my favorites without reading because I know I am weak. Last week I couldn't take it and convinced myself it was my patriotic duty to stimulate the economy so I placed a small order at Fabric.com. I needed some grey to go with an argyle double knit in the stash. I am not bold enough to cover my body entirely in argyle...I need a little something solid to break it up. I ordered some beads to make some jewelry and some other yardage. Here's my grey poorboy knit:So I emailed them and yes, they did apologize and are sending me the grey, thank you very much. I start looking at the other pieces and my silk charmeuse is in 2 pieces! WTH!!! So I complain about that. I knew I was not getting the full 2 yards as I had gotten an email saying they did not have the full 2 yards. What I did not understand (and to be fair, upon review it could be my interpretation of the email) is that the fabric was coming in 2 pieces. I'm sure I can do something with it and perhaps I am just being a cranky *itch. I'm just saying the communication could have been more clear, like "hey dummy, we only have remnants left...you want 'em?" That I get. I sure hope this is not a reflection of the Amazon merger because I was really hoping that would be a good thing! Okay, enough rant about Fabric.com. I don't need to swim in negative feelings. On a positive note, Julia asked for some pictures of the dresses on me, so I had Tom take my picture when I got home from work last night. Please excuse the tired glazed over look. With the sweater and without. And here is the Tippi Hedron dress. Wow, I really need to take the pictures earlier in the day. Not looking as perky and cute as I usually do...I'm such a comedienne! I will leave you with a picture of Jo...pure cuteness any hour of the day!

That's a very pretty shade of Grey !

I've had a mix-up or two with Fabric.com too, but since I've never been ordering for a specific reason (is stash building specific ?) it hasn't been a problem. The pieces I've rec'd instead have both been more expensive and I liked them - no problem there !

Your little guy is definitely cute ! It's a Pom thing - mine is cute all the time too - even when he's in trouble LOL :-)

Your dresses are so lovely!!! So far I have never had a problem with fabric.com, but I probably shouldn't have said that. You know Murphy's law. Your little doggie is ADORABLE!!! What would we do without our pets?

Thanks for posting the photos. The dresses look even better on than off. The sweater is a nice addition. That's the cutest little dog.

Most vibrant grey I've ever seen.

You look marvelous in both dresses! My favorite is the print, but the way you paired the white jacket with the brown dress is really sharp, too.

Mary, both dresses are fab, but my fave is the brown. It really shows the lovely design features of the dress, and is such a flattering style.

I love the dresses! I had an issue with Fabric.com five years ago and have yet to place another order. Up until then I thought they were fabulous, so your mix up was probably just a fluke.
