I second @CarpefnDiem on the rock my wedding tutorial. The nice thing about making your own veil is that tulle is fairly cheap! You can always try again if needed! I had started to make mine but ended up finding a cathedral veil on craigslist that had way more detail than I could’ve done. I was using the rock my wedding tutorial though. I didn’t want a blusher so it was super easy, just buy the fabric, cut to length, round the edges and gather/sew to the hair peice!

@peaseblossom:  I made my own which is a walz length (is goes to mid-calf).  The tutorial I used was: (it’s the best one that shows how to layout the tulle for cutting.  For directions the best one is:  The basic construction of veils is the same, but my advice is the longer the veil the more time it will take to attach any edging (mine took about 1hr to cut and make thw veil and another 14hrs to attach the edging).  In addition edging is going to be the most expensive part so look for sales and coupons on your edging.  These are the pics that I have so far (taken with my really bad phone!).
