What kind of veil did you have?  I ask because I have a really pretty one that I bought earlier this year, and am wearing a borrowed veil instead.

If it is similar to what you had, to save you some time, you are more than welcome to have it! It is really pretty, and I hate that it is just sitting!

 🙂 My mom offered to make my veil when we got engaged (especially after she saw how expensive the beaded, intricate ones I liked were.)  She never got around to it though, LOL!

I’m kind of thinking along the same lines. Especially if you are wanting just a raw edged tulle viel. I mean, how hard can it be? It’s a length of tulle attached to a comb. As long as you can cut the shape out right to get the fullness you want, then I say go for it. It’s just crazy how expensive veils are. Even the simple ones are just outrageous. Let me know how it turns out if you make it. I’m seeing if I should take the plunge and try to make mine.

Mrs. Guinea Pig made hers.  She has a tutorial- http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/04/19/to-tulle-y-done/#more-139325

As a sewing bee I can tell you that it is not difficult.  You just need some basic hand stitching and you are good to go.  Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.
