When I went to make my veil, I decided on a style and then I searched the web for DIY veils in that style.  I found a few different blogs that totally helped with the veil I was trying to make.  I think it sounds like a great idea, using your Mom’s wedding dress.  If you’re nervous, you can buy similar material and practice before you cut Mom’s dress.

Holy cow, those shoes are INTENSE! Completely unrelated, but I just had to comment.

I made my veil out of my mom’s wedding veil, so here is my advice:

– buy some material or tulle similar to what you are using and make practice ones first!

– tulle will snag in a sewing machine, but if you place the tulle on top of paper and sew it right into the paper it will work like a charm and the paper can easily be removed by soaking warm water. I used an embroidery stitch and lined my entire veil by doing this– turned out beautifully!

– search the web. There are TONS of tutorials out there for this type of thing, for any style you could want. Don’t cut into the dress until you know for sure what style you want!

Sorry, OT, here, too.  @ KMSull – lol I had the same reaction.  I did a look up and it’s $745. ugh.

I have no experience making a shoulder or longer style veil, but I did try to make my own birdcage & it was awful. I’m so jealous of all these other brides that could make their own veils, mine was all bendy and weird.

That’s awesome! Let us know how it turnes out! I just want to say I’m jealous of the crafty girls out there that can do stuff like that!

I am making my veil and will be adding elements from my mom’s dress.  I opted to buy a very inexpensive veil from a craft store and modify it.  I bought a veil on clearance for 3 or four bucks (actually 2 of them) and am really playing with them to get comfortable with the tulle and such.  Having 2 makes me feel better about having a little room for error.

Mrs. Sunbeam posted my veil tutorial a couple of weeks ago.
