Try simplebeautyveils on Etsy, I got mine for 42 dollars and I love it!  The seller is so nice and quick too 🙂  Good luck.

My aunt is a seamstress who makes all sorts of clothes as well as costumes for local dance companies.  Crazy, amazing things.  She can’t for the life of her make a veil.  I think there’s something tough about them, so don’t feel too bad!

 : (  I made mine and it turned out okay and I have NO sewing ability.  But I wanted a super simple veil.  Basically I only had to gather and attach to clip.  Let me know if you want any moral support or tips.  It was pretty frustrating.  The thread kept slipping through the tulle because the holes are so big!

What style of veil are you trying to make?  What about the veil don’t you like?  I made mine (2 layers, chapel length, hand stitched ribbon around all of it).  If you have any specific questions, PM me – I can try it help.

They are super cheap and yet amazingly beautiful.  I sent them a picture of a $200 veil that I loved and they re-created it for $34!!!!!

Veils are hard to make!!  Don’t beat yourself up over it!  I think brides can get overly tempted by certain DIY options.  DIY may save you $ but you will often pay it in stress and sanity!  I have heard good things about occanseydesigns.com– def check it out

I redid my veil 4 or 5 times before I got it right….and then put it on the wrong spot on my head for the ceremony…argh!

Keep at it, you might be able to salvage the tulle and not buy anymore. If you think the cut edge looks wrong you could add a row of stiches along the edge or sew on thin ribbon to have it stand out a smidge.
