Final pattern: a stole for our deacons
The deacon stole is meant to be worn on the left shoulder and comes together under the right hip. We have made it in silks and brocades. Again, just contact us for a different size brocade stole kit. It would be too costly to have pre-cut stole kits in the pattern and size lying around; so we can just as the custom orders come. All you have to do is contact us! Carrie will be more than happy to talk to you and get you exactly the right amount as a custom order.
This pattern is not more difficult to make than a curved neck stole. The deacon stole pattern has mitered seams at shoulder and waist. It uses two pattern pieces for top and bottom of stole. There are also separate pattern pieces for the interfacing and lining. There are points marked on the pattern to stitch so that the point will come out correctly. The pattern allows for a 5/8” seam. And a variety of cross appliques can be used on the back neck seam. Whichever cross is chosen, will have a prominent display when the vestment is worn.
So when you consider sewing a stole, we have stole kits and patterns readily available for you to start your project! We want you to make beautiful vestments and paraments. And to that end, we are committed to providing materials for purchase, but the advice, encouragement, and helpful knowledge is something we will give you; all you must do is ask. Once you have the pattern—which has been professionally developed—, you can buy as many stole kits and trims as you need to make as many stoles as you need. Thank you for reading and learning more about stole making and stole kits. #StoleKitFrenzy
