I think Miss Aardvark did a veil tutorial in one of her blog posts. Maybe search for her through the blog?

I did mine! Super simple. All I did was measure out 120 inches of tulle, fold it in half, use a pencil/string compass to draw a circle on paper that is the same width as 1/2 the veil. Pinned the paper to the veil and cut along the circle. II then loosely stitched two threads through the top second that attaches to the comb and pulled to gather the threads, then sewed the threads to the comb.

Super simple 🙂

Strongly thinking about it. But we would put lace on it.. and finding the exact lace has proven difficult.

@SunnyBunny:  I will be honest, I was TERRIFIED about doing it. 45 minutes later I was jumping up and down because it was so simple!! Had I known, I wouldn’t have procrastinated on making it!

 

You’ll do fine 🙂

I’m making mine, but it is a birdcage/fascinator.

I wanted long so I folded it in half, then cut a huuuge  half U. And there it is.

My mom made mine, cathedral length with pearls throughout and a lace applique on the bottom.  I loved it!!
