I have debated making my own and bought some stuff to do it.  I cannot afford to buy one and it finally hit me to sneak my moms from her closet and use it.  It needs some work but I will get it fixed.

Yay, thanks for posting this.  I am bookmarking it for when I make my own veil.

this is awesome! thanks for sharing 🙂


maybe i’m naive, but i just don’t get how some veils can cost HUNDREDS of dollars?! it’s a few yards of tull attached to a plastic comb. even with some nice lace around the edges of some veils, i still just don’t get it! does anyone else know where i’m coming from? or maybe someone can explain why they can be so expensive?

Oh, thats a great tutorial!

@bellamargot: some of the fancier veils have layers of very expensive lace handsewn to several layers – the lace is expensive, and that takes a lot of time! Some of them also have very expensive tulle-like material for the whole veil – with a very fine mesh and good draping qualities. Its also a developed skill to sew them on so they look like they’re part of the veil without it being obviously handmade. I’m definitely making my own because I don’t want to spend that much, but this is some of where they’re coming from.
