OK, So I Got a Muslin Pattern

I'm gonna take the plunge and make a muslin.  I got the Butterick muslin pattern.  I found a certain lack of muslin patterns from a couple of the major pattern companies today when I went looking for one.  As soon as I'm finished with the '57 dress I'm going to begin my muslin.  I know I'm doing this a little backwards but I've never been accused of being organized, or normal for that fact.  Anyone else out there made a muslin?

My Latest Project

Here's my current project, it's laying out on my kitchen table as I'm typing this.  I'm making the short sleeve view with the pictured fabric.  I will post pictures as I make progress.

Look What I Found

I found this one tucked into a metal box in a closet about an hour away from home.  It's a 1964.
