There are two sizes of pre-cut material—face fabric, canvas, and lining—, but only one stole kit—Silk Dupioni—comes in both size A and size B. Most if not all of those brocades COULD be made into size “B” stoles— V-neck stoles, Deacon stoles, Tapered stoles, and 5” stoles. Each pattern-design of the brocade is different and so must be cut according to that specific pattern repeat. If you want any of the brocades in size “B” stoles, all you have to do is contact us! Carrie will be more than happy to talk to you and get you exactly the right amount as a custom order
The V-Neck stole has become a favorite here. We love the pointed back; that instead of curing as the other stoles do, this comes to a neat, tidy point. This is a wider stole and can be made long enough to compliment height requirements.
This V-neck stole pattern is not any more difficult to make than a curved neck stole. There are points marked on the pattern to stitch so that the point will come out correctly. The pattern allows for a 5/8” seam. And a variety of cross appliques can be used on the back neck seam. Whichever cross is chosen, will have a prominent display when the vestment is worn.
So when you consider sewing a stole, we have stole kits and pastoral stole patterns readily available for you to start your project! We want you to make beautiful vestments and paraments. And to that end, we are committed to providing materials for purchase, but the advice, encouragement, and helpful knowledge is something we will give you; all you must do is ask. Once you have the stole pattern—which has been professionally developed—, you can buy as many stole kits and trims as you need to make as many stoles as you need. Thank you for reading and learning more about stole making and stole kits. #StoleKitFrenzy
