** THE A.M MONOGRAM ON THIS VESTMENT IS COPYRIGHT S. EVANS. PLEASE RESPECT THIS. THANK YOU! **
This set of Gothic vestments features a beautiful reproduction of an antique embroidered emblem of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. The design has now been perfected, with a very neat trim finish on the neckline and the width of the trim around the Chasuble edge has been reduced. In this case, less is more, and the finished result is a stunning set of worthy vestments in honour of the Mother of God.
BANDING: Please note that the banding used is either the gold/white Pugin, or the gold/gold St. Dominic. Both of these bandings are lovely, and are used according to availability. I supply the materials and trims at near wholesale cost to you. The banding alone required for this design is valued at over $US300 retail.
The vestments are crafted from imported British St. Benedict fabric, which is a medium weight fabric containing 48% cotton and having a Cross with Wheat designs. The fabric has a beautiful lustre and also comes in RED, GREEN and PURPLE. We can suggest suitable Emblems if you wish to have vestments in these latter colors.
There are blue Greek Crosses worked on the front and also the back. The Emblem can be on either the front or the back, just let me know.
In addition to the 8.5" emblem of Our Lady of Perpetual Help on the back of the chasuble, this design features a very nice A.M. (Ave Maria) emblem on the front. This monogram was taken from a historic Catholic convent chapel window from the town of York, Western Australia. Worked on an ivory silk background, this simple yet radiant emblem perfectly compliments the Marian themed vestment set.
The Stole and maniple are slighly wider than the standard width, but the new design has both of these accessories tapering slightly to give a more eligant look.
This fabric is of such a quality that the Chasuble could easily be left unlined, which would reduce the cost for you. Please inquire if you would like a quote.
