MMMMonday: May 1st through 7th

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

May 1, 2012

What: A self-silk-screened shirt: the wizard from the game Gauntlet in brown on a yellow T shirt

Where: To work. I woke up a little intimidated about MMM’12, and I gravitated towards a favorite self-screened T shirt to ease myself into the challenge.


May 2, 2012

What:  The Straight-Legged Betty Jeans

Where:  To work then out to dinner with some very special friends who were in town (one of whom sews and had not only made her entire outfit but also gone to the Gaultier exhibit that afternoon).


May 3, 2012

What:  The Secret Garden Pleated Skirt

Where:  To work.  A long day at work. Always a good reason to throw on a happy skirt.


May 4, 2012

What:  The Stripey Renfrew

Where:  To work and to sewing class.  In honor of Friday’s food theme, I had my husband take my photo while we were making a homemade pizza.  Mmm…  MMM!


May 5, 2012

What:  A self-silk-screened shirt:  the female warrior from the game Gauntlet in green on a light blue T shirt

Where:  To see The Avengers with friends.  I put together my best super hero outfit for the occasion.


May 6, 2012

What:  The Good-Enough-for-a-First-Try Running Skirt

Where:  On a morning run with a good friend, then to cheer on her fiancé at a 5k race.  He won!


What:  The Gray-and-Teal Floral Pendrell

Where:  To a regular day at work.

    1. Wet hair. I guess it does look pretty red when it’s wet. I’d never noticed before! I’m one of those people who never fusses (or even brushes!) their hair. Since I shower in the morning, the MMM photos I’ve snuck in before work all have wet hair. I’m not brave enough to color my hair, but if I did, I do think I’d try red.

      1. You know, I think the red hair may be from the Photoshop filter that I used on these photos…

  1. Super cute, Amy! Those jeans are amazing! They fit you perfectly. I love your Renfrew, too. I need to try again with a lighter weight fabric. My sweatshirt version is a bit tight.

    Homemade pizza is the best. Eric and I have gotten into a Friday night ritual of making pizza and pasta at home. It’s fun to make and sooo delicious.

  2. Wow, I agree with the others, your me-mades don’t look home-made at all! No need to be nervous about the month! I really like your pictures and the style of your post, enjoyable reading.

  3. I love the great variety of your outfits! They’re all totally different, completely practical, and cute! Nicely done! I’m excited to see what you wear the rest of the month (and I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE YOU MADE THOSE JEANS!)!
