Have you shopped Sawyer Brook? I recently placed my first online order with them. It was late one night...I couldn't sleep... So I picked up my iPad lying on the bedside table. You know how it goes. I'll just look, a little window shopping until my eyelids get heavy.
I had seen another blogger's haul from SB, which prompted me to take a look. I clicked on the 'what's new' tab, and immediately found these two lovelies. These colors are off - the Ponte on the right is not as pumpkiny as it looks - it has a bit of red in it. The fabric on the left is a deep blue, but not navy, linen. I did not purchase these to use together, but rather because it was love at first sight. Plans for these pieces are not set in stone, but I am thinking a dress with the Ponte. The linen may also be destined for a dress, but I also love linen pants and shorts, both of which I need.
And I also ordered their swatch service for further temptation. Like I need it. They sent a coupon also.
So, my first shopping experience with Sawyer Brook was good. The fabric came in a timely manner, and was well packaged. Everything was in a plastic bag, taped closed, then put inside a sturdy mailing envelope. I much prefer this manner of shipping, with the fabric protected in a bag. Not all online places do this, as you probably know. My only complaints are that there was no invoice in the order, nor were the fabrics labeled. I like having the invoice at hand, as I keep them for reference. I should still be able to print one up, so not a huge deal. Overall, I am happy with my order and SB's service. I will be back. ;-)
Andrea Edited to add links, but the links aren't working for me, so here are the names: Sapphire Linen and Ember Rayon Ponte. Just in case you need some, you can still find them on Sawyer Brook listed in their new arrivals. They both are really beautiful; the picture fails to do justice to their loveliness. I may have to play with these tonight....
