SSS’11: September 5th through 8th

This September I’m joining Zoe at ‘So, Zo…’ in a challenge to wear something handmade every day for thirty days. This post marks the second update of my progress.

September 5, 2011

What: Refashioned Sorbetto Blouse

Where: To work and around the house. The bit of sickness that I’d been feeling blossomed into a full-on cold, so rest, recovery, and relaxation are the words of the day.

What:  A self-silk-screened shirt:  rockin’ out with Tricky in black on a light purple T shirt

Where:  Through another day of sick, which included a morning and afternoon at work and an evening finishing my colorful pleated skirt.


September 7, 2011

What:  The Secret Garden Pleated Skirt

Where:  To work.  I secretly took an iPhone photo at my desk at work for the Wednesday weekly theme. Today’s motto:  look better to feel better.  I think I’m finally on the mend.


September 8, 2011

What:  A self-silk-screened shirt:  a dog in white on a brown T shirt

Where:  To work.  And, here, staring at our fish tank.  I was hoping to keep my screened Ts down to one an update, but this morning was a bit of a rush.  Notice I’m even wearing the same sweater from yesterday.  I do like its big brown buttons with this particular shirt though.  Something about the combo with the dog makes me happy.

    1. No, during graduate school I had access to a silk-screening room, and since the shirts were cheap, the paint was free, and the labor was fun, I made quite a lot of T shirts.
