Red Echo

February 3, 2008

My latest sewing project is a birthday gift for Mez: a kimono-style silk robe, cornflower blue, trimmed with black brocade and lined with eggplant-purple silk. I didn’t have a pattern to work from, so I snuck into his closet and stole some measurements from one of his jackets and improvised from there. The result is a little outside my usual range, but it’s very Mez, and yet somehow very me, too. I didn’t quite get it done in time – the hems are unfinished, and it needs a belt – but I made the formal presentation anyway, and he seemed very pleased.


  1. It’s beautiful, Mars!
