Two nights ago, I finally got around to using it. The lighting in my sewing room isn't the greatest. My husband was like "is that blue?" and I was all, no, it's black! I cut out a pattern for a skirt and started sewing. After a seam or two, I was like "This IS blue!"
Look, totally blue:
Did I order the right thing? Sure did:
I had used less than a yard for the skirt, and I still had three left. I sent the following email to their customer service:
RE: Order 520551
I ordered 4 yards of item #7069 black crepe suiting. I just got around to sewing with it yesterday and after I cut out my pieces and started to sew, I noticed the fabric was NAVY! Not black. I compared it to some black and navy fabric I owned and it's definitely blue. I have three yards (and a useless, half-finished dress) left and I was wondering if I'd be able to send it back in exchange for black? It is definitely not what I was expecting to receive. Thanks!

I got the following lovely one line response:
We are not able to accept fabric back that has already been cut.
Uh, that's not fair! I am not asking for anything for free, I am not asking to exchange fabric I didn't like, I just want to get what I ordered! I think they are being completely unreasonable and there's no excuse for them not exchanging the fabric that they sent me in error. I just want what I paid for.
So now I am stuck with 3 yards of navy crepe. Can I dye it? Does anyone have a dye recommendation? I can safely say I am definitely NOT ordering from fashionfabricsclub.com ever again. What a waste of money.
