Importance Notice :
Commissions for 2018 and 2019

To all readers considering placing commissions for vestments with the Studio : At present, the Studio is accepting commissions for 2019.

Over the last few months, we have had to disappoint a number of Ordinands who applied to us too late to have vestments made for mid-2018 Ordinations.

Please avoid similar disappointment for 2019 by approaching us without delay to discuss your intentions for vestments.

On the Feast of the Annunciation



The Studio has completed a set of vestments of the Blessed Virgin Mary for a returning customer, a young priest in the United States. This design we have named Regina Coeli.

The vestments were made from an English ecclesiastical brocade damask. They were ornamented with a damask in peacock blue and silver, outlined with a silver-coloured narrow galloon. The vestments were lined with dupion silk in a shade to match the orphrey.

Greetings to all readers on this Feast of the Annunciation.

Puginesque dalmatic

The Saint Bede Studio has completed two dalmatics and a cope for a returning customer.  Together, the vestments now comprise a Solemn Mass set in the Gothic Revival style.

The dalmatics (one is shewn adjacent), were sewn from an ivory and straw-coloured ecclesiastical brocade and ornamented with an orphrey in green, gold and red : a unique design of the Saint Bede Studio, based on the work of AWN Pugin.  The vestments were lined in straw-gold taffeta.
