UPDATE FROM ROME: Cutting the fabric for vestments

As an update to my post about vestments the other day, here are some shots of the fabric being cut at Gammarelli in Rome for the new set we, the TMSM, are having made.

Our intrepid tailor is the always helpful and cheerful Stefano!


If you ever have dealings with Gammarelli, greet the crew and tell them Fr. Z sent you.

  1. This is a first for me! I have never seen anyone that dressed up to cut out a pattern. More power to him if he is able to do that. I have to be in my slouchy stuff.

    It’s a fantastic shop with wonderful customer service, even for those with un po Italiano. It’s a tough environment for small children, though, even with the graciousness of the staff.

    [Small children? No reason they should be there. Not exactly the target market.]

    Lovely! What colour is the trim?

    semperficatholic – I would imagine it is a well cut suit, with freedom of movement.

  5. Therese says:

    Agreed, semperficatholic. Stefano looks as a fine tailor should.

    I have been in this lovely shop and stood at that antique (oak?) counter. But never did I dream that they cut material on it!

    Obviously kids need to be at the “look but don’t touch” stage. Like going to a museum.

    But if your kids are old enough to watch, stay out of the way, and keep their hands behind their backs, I bet it is great for them!

    I must repeat myself: Very, very beautiful fabric!
