Vestments for Lent: III

This vestment (and a red one of similar design, which will be the subject of another post) was made for the use of a Parish in the Archdiocese of Melbourne.  It is in the Saint Philip Neri style now familiar to readers of this Blog.

The vestments are made of Roman purple dupion silk and ornamented with a silk brocade featuring the ChiRo emblem.  Braids in burgundy and straw colour outline the orphrey according to the Roman style.

To subdue the appearance of the chasuble,  a dark coloured lining was employed: wine-red.
