Hey guys I was thinking the other day about getting my veil, (and lamenting about spending more money) and struck me that it might not be too hard to make.
I had remembered some really lovely lace that I always look at when I go to JoAnn Fabrics. So I thought, hey what the heck? I’ll give it a try and if it doesn’t turn out I won’t be out too much.
So I went and bought a wire comb, the kind you see attached to veils, and I bought 2 yards of my lace. After reading a quick “how to” page on the web I was off!
Here are the results:
Keeo in mind I’m very novice at sewing, but I think it turned out well! Has anyone else made their own veil?

I think you did a wonderful job 🙂
I also made my own veil. You can see a teaser picture of it here.

Very pretty, really great DIY 🙂 It’s hard to tell from the photo, is your veil 2 tiers or 1 tier of lace?

@Lily of theValley Your veil is so beautiful! I can’t believe you made it–you’re so talented!
@noritake22 Your veil is also gorgeous! I actually envision wearing a veil like this for my wedding, and I’d love to hear how you made it! Lace veils are so expensive, and I’m sure it would be much cheaper (and potentially fun!) to make it myself.

OMG soooo pretty! I am so jealous- I wish I had the patience and the talent to create something like that. Great job!

@pink.sequins:It is two tiers. I basically took a big piece of lace and cut it, not quite in half, for the two tiers.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments girls!
