Yet more of the Borromeon form

A priest resident in Illinois, USA commissioned a set of vestments from the Studio in the Borromeon style.  The results are shewn in the adjacent photograph.  At the moment, there is much interest in the Borromeon form, of chasuble, which is somewhat ample in cut and ornamented in the Roman style.

These vestments are made from a straw-coloured silk damask, ornamented with an ecclesiastical brocade in burgundy and old gold and outlined with a narrow galloon.

A word on photographs appearing on this website.  These images are intended to illustrate the vestments made by the Studio: they are specially "posed".  They are not intended to precisely reproduce liturgical actions, or the exact manner in which a priest ought to vest or stand.  Wherever possible, the photographs illustrate the correct proportions of the vestment to its owner.  Except where acknowledged, photographs on this website are protected by copyright and may not be reproduced in any form, especially on other blogs or websites, except with prior permission from the Saint Bede Studio.
