I think it looks really pretty! I’m actually looking for something like that, but I’m not as brave or crafty! The way I see it, you already have 10 hours into it, so what’s a little more?

It looks beautiful! How much did the materials for it cost? I think having a hand-made veil (made by yourself, no less!) is something that you can be really proud of. I think you should keep going, but of course only you can judge if 20 hours more of work is worth $200!

I totally feel for you!  I made my own lace shawl, which meant hand sewing lace trim on the raw edges… It took 15 hours.  Now, I’ve made lace cap sleeves to add to my dress for our reception. I made them from scraps of lace that had to be sewn together so the sleeves were mirror images of each other, and then I hand beaded them. I probably had at least 50 hours into them…

It is a LOT of work, but it is SOOOO worth it when you’re done. You get a huge sense of accomplishment, plus you know it is being done exactly the way you want it.  You’re doing a great job. Keep at it. You won’t regret it.
