Vestment Design

A while ago I had the great privilege of collaborating with Altarworthy Handmade Vestments to create a design for the back of a priest's chasuble.

Here was my original concept:

Here is the finished product, modified by Altarworthy and used on a real chasuble!

This is a close-up showing the metallic embroidery on the chalice and the red garnets which symbolize Christ's 5 wounds:

This is part of a vestment set for newly ordained Fr. James Mawdsley, FSSP. 

"O Holy Mother of God, pray for the priests your Son has chosen to serve the Church. Help them, by your intercession, to be holy, zealous, and chaste. Make them models of virtue in the service of God's people. Help them be pious in meditation, efficacious in preaching, and zealous in the daily offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Help them administer the Sacraments with love and joy. Amen."  -St. Charles Borromeo

Very nice indeed! Your design & drawing are very accomplished. I'm sure your calligraphy will catch up quickly with an eye like that.
Pity the Altarworthy people don't study letterspacing, & word spacing a bit more.
