Priest or Pastor Stoles: The Tricky Parts

Making Priest or Pastor Stoles involves overcoming tricky parts. With Silk Shantung fabric, the challenge is its semi-transparency. To address this, underlining with unbleached muslin is presented. Orphrey size and placement are determined using the cutting table grid, following the design rule of “threes” for visual appeal. Now comes the tricky part: the lower edge of the stole. A geometry lesson and a protractor lead to marking angles and folding techniques, simplifying the process and making stole ends more enjoyable to finish.
