Violet Puginesque Vestments

This chasuble set was recently completed by the Saint Bede Studio.

The vestments were made from dupion silk, handmade in India.  The chasuble is unlined, and so is rather lightweight, but its neckline was faced to give a neat and substantial finish to the opening.

These vestments are in a beautiful, but not too deep, shade of violet. The ornament is formed from an orphrey braid exclusive to the Saint Bede Studio and based directly on the work of AWN Pugin. The colours of the braid are silver, Roman purple and crimson.
