Clergy Robes, Part 1

This summer I was blessed with the opportunity to make the clergy attire for an ordination ceremony. This was one of my largest and most challenging projects to date. Nevertheless, I think everything turned out exceptionally well. Here’s the cassock.

The pictures below show more of the detail in the cassock. I used fabric with a celestial print for the collar, sleeve and vest. The vest is worn over the surplice.
