So I have finally cut out the toole for the perfect veil, but I don’t know how to finish the edges. My fi and I both like pencil edging, but that is the one kind I don’t know how to do!
Suggestions? I tried doing a narrow zig-zag stich with my sewing machine, but it just doesn’t look very good.

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!!
