Mardi Gras in Binche.

Ana was a Portuguese grad student studying Romanesque architecture, living in Belgium.

We were neighbors. I’d seen her often, wearing her trademark damask blazer in a delicate but lively pattern. We met the night of the Carnival of Binche, when I watched her catch a piece of fruit launched vigorously at her window by a Gille.

“Good catch,” I said.

“Obrigado,” she replied, and asked me in for a Leffe.

A week later she was gone. I still remember her smile, her wavy hair, the tiny gap between her teeth. How vibrant she looked in that colorful little jacket.

I told her to look me up someday. I made this blazer for her, just in case she didn’t know I still think of her.

Ana’s Mardi Gras Blazer (No. 4209). 100% cotton dobby. Fully lined. Waist shaping darts. 3 1/4” facing cuffs. Black metal button at center front. Black cotton trim at neck and pocket welt. Shoulder pads. Imported.
