I’ve heard that using a serger or a serger stitch on your machine can give you that “pencil edge” look.

I am using ribbon and hand stitching the edges of my veil.  It’s chapel  length and has two layers, so it’s taking a while!

Hey ginnyc! I made the pencil edging on my veil using a serger, which is the only way I know of to make a true pencil edge.  I happened to know someone with a serger, but if you don’t, perhaps you could ask around on the WB local boards, or maybe check with a seamstress/tailor?  I’m not totally sure about where you could find one, but if you wanted to do something to the edges yourself, I like EvaBostonTerrier’s suggestion of sewing a thin ribbon to the edge to give some definition.  Good luck!!
