Clergy Stole Pattern Designed for Custom High-End Vestments & Garments
The 3.5" pastoral or priest stole pattern is designed to accommodate a variety of heights. It has cutting lines for a 46" and 55" finished length. The narrower width works well for those wanting a stole that can be worn on the side as a deacon, and later worn on the front as a priest stole. The length can easily be changed to allow for a hem that is plain with no trim, or a hem trimmed with fringe, or tassels.*
The 3.5" inch stole pattern also has a lengthen and shorten line to allow for further customization. The stole pattern has notches on all of the pieces to add with matching long straight seamlines. There is a marking on the stole lining for the placement of a cord or stole chain which helps lift the stole back a slight amount from the wearer's neck. Other features of the 3.5" wide pastoral or priest stole include a separate lining and interfacing piece cut to specific sizes, based on formal tailoring techniques and pattern making for custom high end tailored garments. This feature gives the finished stole a distinct finish, which looks professional and well made, imitating a finely tailored garment
The instructions and construction style make this stole a nice project for beginner and professional alike.
