As Lent Begins

This is a chasuble in the Studio's Saint Martin style, being a contemporary interpretation of the mediaeval chasuble. It is a very ample vestment and intended for use in Lent. The vestments are made from a simple silk in a darker shade of purple and ornamented in the Roman style with a braid of the Studio's own design, but based on the work of AWN Pugin. It is fully lined in crimson taffeta.

The vestment described in this post was commissioned by a young priest in the United States.
