Style 1005 - 5 Inches Wide
Pastor or Priest Stole Sewing Pattern
Have you ever struggled to find just the right stole for someone with larger shoulders and a tall frame? If so, the 5-inch stole pattern may be just the style you have been looking for! By adding just a bit more width to our normal stole style, the 5-inch wide Stole pattern creates the perfect balance and proportions so often needed for taller pastors with larger frames.
Although the stole pattern has three lengths, there are extra lines for shortening and lengthening for those times when a bit more or less length is needed.

What is the sewing level for this project?
This is a project for advanced intermediate to professional-level seamstresses. This project is NOT for beginners.
What is the pattern printed on?
The pattern is printed on white paper. For those who wish to use something a bit less stiff, you may prefer to trace the pattern onto a lighter-weight Pellon pattern interfacing paper.
Why is the pattern printed on white paper?
There are limited paper options available for small pattern companies to keep production minimums low and costs affordable for clients. The patterns are printed locally in small quantities as needed. The available paper that is large enough for use with our full-size patterns for use while still allowing for small print runs is white blueprint paper.
Can the wrinkles be pressed out of the pattern by ironing?
It is NOT recommended to use anything hot to press the pattern paper. The patterns are printed with toner ink and they will smudge and leave black marks on other surfaces if the pattern is ironed. Simple smooth the pattern out by hand prior to cutting. If you prefer, the pattern may also be traced off on Pellon Pattern interfacing to preserve the original.
Is the pattern available as a digital download file?
The patterns are NOT available as a digital download file. They are a physical product that requires shipping.
Are the patterns sold to clients the same patterns used by Ecclesiastical Sewing?
Yes. We use the very same patterns that are available online in our workrooms for creating beautiful vestments.
