Vestments of the Blessed Virgin

For today's post, we are pleased to describe this Marian chasuble,  Ave Maris Stella,  made for an English priest.  This is a chasuble in the Gothic Revival style.

The decorative focus of this vestment is an orphrey braid which is based on the work of AWN Pugin.  This braid is produced in two shades of blue (lighter and darker) with figured ornament in gold.

These vestments were made from an ecclesiastical damask in the shade of ivory and lined in a Royal Blue taffeta.
