Help me! Help me! Need Vestment Patterns
I am in the process of making vestments for our priest. We are Eastern Orthodox so our vestments are not exactly like those for Catholic priests. I have managed to duplicate the sticharion (a loose caftan-like garment worn under the cape-like part) and the phelonion (the cape portion) along with all of the accessories. But, I need a pattern for the cassock which is worn under everything else. It is much more fitted than either of the other garments. The russian version features a wrap front with a side tab button closure at neck and waist. It also has a short stand-up collar. You would think there would be a commercial source available for these since they are such a common garment for Orthodox priests, but no such luck. They are expensive to buy and we are just a small Church. I could take one of his and use it as a pattern, but it would be more difficult because it is more fitted. Any sources (I hope, I hope) or suggestions?
