Someone I follow on Instagram recently posted a photo of some new fabrics that they got via a company called L.A. Finch Fabrics. I, of course, had to look into it to find out where these amazing fabrics had come from. Turns out that they have a gorgeous selection of apparel fabrics that would be difficult to find at most fabric stores. I did end up purchasing several yards of fabric to try out. Mostly rayon challis, ponte knit and one silk (my first silk purchase!).
Here’s a quick look at the new items:
Not only did they send the fabrics, they also included a huge stack of samples, 6 tiny coconut buttons, a good-sized length of black lace ribbon and several twill tape scraps which they used to bundle the fabric. There was, unfortunately, an issue with the gorgeous floral rayon. I ordered two yards of it to make a dress and they sent me two separate yards of it. Obviously, that wouldn’t work for making a dress.
I emailed them and told them about the issue. The immediately gave me a refund for the floral fabric and asked if I’d like two yards of a different rayon since the floral had a dye issue. I looked through their site and nothing really stood out so I just asked for two more yards of the floral, weird dye or no.
All in all I was disappointed that it happened in the first place but they handled the issue quickly and above and beyond my expectations. I will definitely continue shopping here because I’d like to support a smaller fabric company vs. JoAnn fabrics. Still, though, how does that even happen? Oh well.
Here are the fabrics I bought draped on a form to show off the print/weight:

And here is my plan for all these luscious fabrics!
