Brijee Patterns Makes A Debut: The Linden Lady

Dear Readers,
         I have a rather exciting post for today. I have long aspired to participate in the various pattern testing opportunities that pop up every now and then throughout the sewing pattern world. I signed up for as many testing lists as I can find, and was nearly able to try a Jennifer Lauren pattern. Unfortunately, the list was filled up before I saw it. Imagine my delight when I saw that Brigid Boyer of the Boyer Family Singers was looking for testers! I signed up as quickly as I could and managed to squeak in at the very end. Hooray! I can unashamedly admit that I did a happy dance when I was accepted. Yes, my sister thought that I had thoroughly lost it. I did not care.

          Without further ado, allow me to introduce the lovely Linden Lady:

Color Recipes for Spring - Butterick 6018

Dear Readers, 
           I decided to participate in Emily's Color Recipes for Spring contest at the very end. As I have mentioned before, I have been terribly busy, and I did not think that I would be able to come up with an entry. (I also forgot about it until Esther from Dolly Creates mentioned it in one of her recent posts.) Needless to say, I found time. . . After Emily extended the deadline by three days. Seriously, I would not have been able to consider participating if she had not done that. So, thank you Emily!

        I originally spotted this fabric at my local Joann store some time ago. Being the poor child that I am, the $6/yd price was far out of my range. I do not make a habit of buying fabric that is over $2 or $3 per yard. This does limit my choices to the red tag clearance section and to excellent sales that pop up every now and then, but it has never been a problem. Until now. . .

The first two days have already come and gone. For Day One I wore my first variation of Simplicity 1460:
