Embossed Velvet Cope
This red velvet cope originally came from Mundelein and has made its way to a local parish in Chicago. The closure had come apart but otherwise it was in pretty good shape. This one has a rare and amazing embossed velvet fabric that has held up beautifully.
Black velvet, silver, pearls and an unusual accent color - orange. And it totally works.
French Gold Chasuble
I love the strength of the raised elements on this Chasuble. Yet is still looks delicate somehow. Beautiful design on this. We are going to try this technique at some point. Cardboard anyone?
Here’s a treat. Karen found this 1932 Ecclesiastical Embroidery Sampler.
