    This may be an obvious one….but do you have the right needle on for that? Because I made the same mistake with using a needle for generic sewing/cotton on some really nice silk and it took me FOREVER to realize there are needles FOR different kinds of materials.

    when im sewing very fine fabric and lace, i like to sew it with some tissue paper on the bottom of the fabric and once you have finished sewing , you can easily rip the tissue paper away from the fabric. i found this helps with the stitches

    I think it looks fine! I think nobody would notice anything weird unless they get SUPER close and stare at your veil…so they probably won’t notice

    I think it looks amazing!

    What’s a dip? the part where it’s lower in the middle? or the little ridg-y things all along it (they look like shallow Us)? or something else?

    I think it looks fantastic the way it is! I think the “dip” is pronounced enough that no one would think anything of it.

    Can you add a new poll choice that says “stlgingko, this looks amazing, you should make veils for a living!” ???  🙂

    I think the veil looks great!  What does your dress look like?
