For those who have the linguistic ability, talent, and/or interest, here are patterns and Russian instructions to sew a podriasnik (cassock) and skufia.

Dave,

You continually amaze me with the sites that you find.

Many years,

Neil, who will not be sewing a podriasnik or skufia, but marvels that there are instructions online for doing so biggrin

Thanks, Dave. I've passed that on to the Hegumena in our household. Whenever I try anything other than sewing a button, I usually draw blood and end up with thread where it is not supposed to be, and she does this :rolleyes:

Any hope of translation for the Linguistically Challenged?


Or do I keep on taking the Simplicity Civil War General's costume and turning it into a greek-style cassock?

Sharon,

I don't know if you've seen it, but I believe Butterick has a cassock pattern. It can be used to make a Roman or what looked like a Semi-Jesuit design. The latter could, perhaps, be turned into something more "Eastern." I've never tried it, though. I have sewn one cassock (Russian style, very light weight) for myself; I made my own pattern by tracing one of my purchased cassocks. I've had others ask if I could do it again, but I don't think I can. I forgot what I did, and I got through sewing purely by God's grace! smile

Dave,

Thanks, I've seen the pattern. T'be honest, it's less of a hassle converting the Civil War General pattern into a Greek cassock then it would be adapting the Roman cassock wink

All kidding aside, check out the Simplicity pattern. With the stand-up collar, the overlaid front and the cuffed sleeves, it's got so many of the appropriate characteristics, it's practically a gift. Check out: http://www.simplicity.com/index.cfm...e=19&sec=0&id=57&StartRow=11 and click on the two Union soldiers. The sashed gentlemen are wearing incipient cassocks, Mwahahahahaha!

Keep in mind I've been adapting patterns since I was a kid. (You have to when you are built like me.) It matters MUCH less that the CWG's pattern is a short jacket - extending the length of a garment is laughably simple - than that is is cut appropriately, and has some of the major architectural features of the garment I want to end up with. Since it already has an overlaid front, I can easily turn it into a diagonal line from collar to waist, and turn the collar just a wee bit. Add buttons, ties and the interesting "extended diamond" on-seam side pockets Greek cassocks tend to have, and POW. It's a pattern. I've made a couple - built for everyday use rather than fancy-wear. I'm fond of TeeShot Poplin, sold by JoAnn Fabrics. It's a relatively lightweight poly/cotton that wears like iron, while having enough substance to drape pretty well. Your Mileage May Vary - but may the Lord save us from Astro-Turf Polyester Doubleknit!


Best,

Sharon

Sharon and all,

Slava Isusu Christu.

I was at a seamstress today. We are going to try to make a cassock using pattern 5386 at:
http://www.simplicity.com/index.cfm...e=19&sec=0&id=59&StartRow=11

She wants to see a current cassock so she can modify the pattern, but making it out of a lightweight poly/cotton blend should work (for me, the world's almost oldest alterserver smile )

Specifically, the one Neo is wearing (that is Keanau Reeves just in case).

Michael (a sinner and hopefully soon wearing a new cassock for Liturgy)

Sharon, as one who once did costumes for a long defunct theatre company, I can assure you those Simplicity patterns have often saved the day.

I'm going to translate the Russian page for my wife. If anyone is interested I can pass it along.

I realize this is quite an old thread, but if anyone saved the patterns referred to in this thread (and translated the instructions) I would be extremely grateful to obtain a copy.

Thanks
