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 fourth update of my progress.
May 22, 2012
Where: To work. There’s nothing like doing science in a silk blouse!
May 23, 2012
What: The Gray Armani Jacket
Where: To work and then dinner with friends. It’s been surprisingly chilly in the San Francisco area this week. I’ve gotten more use out of my handmade jackets than I expected this month.
May 24, 2012
What: The Linen Knit Renfrew
Where: To work. I made an effort to think beyond the jeans I’ve been wearing everyday, but I still gravitated towards pants yet again.
May 25, 2012
What: A self-silk-screened shirt: the male warrior from the game Gauntlet in teal on a maroon T shirt
Where: To work. Though not handmade, this skirt is my go-to for the end of a day of hiking or a weekend of camping. I’ve never worn it to work because it’s made of sweatshirt knit, but I enjoyed wearing it today. I bet it would be easy to duplicate…

What: The Mad Men Dress
Where: To a game night with friends. A wild night of Bananagrams. I found myself spelling sewing-related words surprisingly often.
May 27, 2012
Where: To dinner with friends. I love this dress but haven’t been motivated to wear it because of the chill in the air. I decided to try it with my long cardigan today.
May 28, 2012
What: A self-silk-screened shirt: ”The Unnaturals” with a frog in black on a green ringer T shirt
Where: To work. On Memorial Day. So I decided it was okay to have another insanely casual day at work. I’m practically in running clothes!
