Latin Mass Chasuble Sewing Pattern Details

As a designer, I’ve worked closely with our pattern maker to create the largest collection of chasuble sewing patterns available on the market.

It only takes a bit of imagination to see the many possibilities that can be created using this lovely Lain Mass Chasuble Sewing Pattern. If this were on the work tables, I would consider using a Black and gold Dice Braid with the above applique. The black and gold Dice Braid certainly lends a subtle but striking finishing touch.

Struggles Carrie faced over the years

I know firsthand the struggle that many face when trying to create beautiful church vestments. For instance, when I created my very first church vestment years ago as a young college student, there was nothing available. And we did not have the internet! There was only the local fabric store. Fast forward 25 to 30 years. My church had just built a lovely new building. As a designer and seamstress, I wanted to use my time and talents to create vestments and paraments for my church. Sadly, nothing had changed! There was still nothing available! Thus, an amazing 20-year journey began.

Today, we are so pleased to offer a wonderful assortment of patterns and resources for others because we don’t believe it should be a struggle to have good sewing pattern designs available. Our hope and prayers are that by providing quality sewing patterns,¬† seamstresses can use their time and talents to bring beauty to their churches without enduring the struggles that I had faced.

This Latin Mass Chasuble Sewing Pattern is one of the latest sewing pattern treasures that we offer for those who are on this journey. The pattern is available on our website, along with Coordinating Latin Mass Stole Patterns, Chalice Veil, and burse patterns. Now you can create your own Low Mass Vestment Set!

Church Vestments: what is next?

Having a great sewing pattern is only the first step when creating church vestments. There have been so many requests for church vestment sewing classes in recent months. We appreciate and understand the challenges of actually putting that sewing pattern to use!  Knowing how to work with brocade patterns, trims, and colors, and what techniques and skills are needed to create a beautifully finished piece are all sewing skills we were never taught.

Working with fabrics that cost hundreds of dollars per yard can be intimidating and overwhelming, to say the least! The fear of making one wrong cut can keep anyone frozen and afraid to even begin their project. I have personally lived this story! A beautiful piece of $240 per yard tapestry fabric was draped over my sewing and cutting table for 8 months before I summoned the courage to take that very first cut. But when I finally did, everything changed!

Upcoming announcements

In the next month or so, please keep watch for an announcement about a special opportunity to work directly with Carrie. Carrie is a master seamstress and church vestment maker. This will be your chance to see and experience firsthand the exact steps and processes we use in our studio today. You can learn to create the same lovely church vestments similar to those you see on our Facebook and Instagram pages. And when you invest and grow in your sewing skills and understand how to work with these wonderful fabrics, you will no longer spend months in fear of starting your next church vestment sewing project.
