I would suggest sewing from one side to the other, then pulling the thread tight, so it gathers, and then sewing it around the comb. Then I would do the edging as it will look different after it is gathered… I should just do this for my own veil also, but I am too lazy!

It turned out to be easier than I imagined actually!  Clear thread is a pain to work with but it’s absolutely necessary so you don’t see a seam.  You just have to weave it in and out in a straight line across the tulle, then cinch and tie, and attach the comb right there.

Don’t even attempt to cut the veil with scissors!  It’s impossible to get a straight line because the material won’t sit still!  If you have a rotary cutter and board, use that instead.  Otherwise a drywall cutter or other very sharp knife will work well, with a cutting board underneath.  You’ll probably need to attach the comb first and wear it in your dress while someone else marks on the edge of the veil where it should be cut.

Good luck!!

Do you have any pics of the veil and/or work process?
