Vestments for Pentecost : 1

As Pentecost approaches, we are pleased to present some of the red vestments made by the Saint Bede Studio, but in a brighter or flame-coloured shade of red.

The Saint Bede Studio

This set of vestments is in the style we call Saint Benet.  It is a stylised chasuble common in the Gothic Revival period of the mid-19th century.  The chasuble is long, but not wide.  As made by the Saint Bede Studio, this style of vestment is very comfortable to wear.

This particular set was made from dupion silk in a bright shade of red, it was lined in a muted gold shade of taffeta and ornamented with a one of the Studio's unique braids Salisbury in colours of red, burgundy and gold.  This particular braid is geometric in design and is very attractive with a brighter red ground fabric.
