How Many White Things Can You Cut Out In 2 Days? - R

There are no pictures for this post because everything I did this weekend was done in white muslin or white material:
Traced pattern, then cut and marked 1940's dress muslin
Cut out white brocade and lining for a man's formal vest and bow tie,
Traced and cut out man's doublet muslin
Sewed a bit on a white muslin farthingale
Machine embroidered the cuffs, ruffles and collars of a man's white muslin Elizabethan shirt.  Have finally learned how to line those suckers up properly.
Did machine black work embroidery on a white muslin smock yoke for me (not at all successful and will probably have to scrap it and start over)
And, finally, made a pattern from an existing dress for my sister (that project is about 10 years in the waiting, but I finally had the skills and materials to do it right).

Waiting in the wings is the white muslin bodice for the Titanic Tea Dress that Lisa will fit to me this weekend, a white muslin Victorian chemise that is almost finished and some other project in a bag that I just didn't bother to look at.

So what do you do when you are sick of white muslin?  Go online the next day and by some colorful fabric for which you will need to make...you guessed it....a white muslin!
