Ahh! You guys I’m so excited. I just finished my recreation of the Melissa Sweet Uma Veil!
Including the comb, tulle, and 2 yards offabric for the petals, it only cost me around $20 and 10 hours of my time. I lovveee it. I’m so disappointed I only get to wear it for 30 minutes and for pictures. I want to wear it allll night long!
Is anyone else wearing the Uma Veil or one similar to it, like mine?

great job I love it! I want to make one very similar but with pearls too. Did you use tulle? How many yards and how wide was it? How many petals did you use?

@Mrs.babycat: Thanks! Yeah, I used tulle and it was 108″ wide. Got it from Jo-anns with a 40% or 50% coupon (can’t remember which). It is about 110″ long.
ETA: And I have no idea how many petals I used. I used cut circles using the number 1 circle on the template here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/30871747/Hof3-RF-FabricPeonyTemplate Actually, I made the circles a little wider. I used a full two yards of fabric for the petals.
