A friend of mine is  getting married soon and is making a veil for herself. Does any one have an idea of a nice  veil she can make for herself in a small amount of time?

I made mine and it was so quick...I just bought enough fabric that I liked to make a veil (mine was LONG), hemmed it all around and then sewed ribbon along the edge.  I attached it all to a hair comb thing (big in the 80s...) with hot glue / sewing and added some tiny flowers.  It didn't take more than a few episodes of sex in the city!

I made a wedding veil for a costume one time.  I wanted it to be very long and flowy so I used about 4 yards of very fine tulle.  I used a serger to roll the edges and round off the corners.  I also wanted it to have some sparkle to it.  I found some really small Swarovski crystal beads (2mm I think)  and attached them using tiny specks of super glue (put the glue on the bead ,not the tulle.  and use tweezers or you'll end up with crusty, sparkly fingers).  I started applying the beads very sparsely to make sure that I didn't weigh the tulle down too much.  After I got the beads the way I wanted them I found the middle of the fabric and then measured 6 inches down the length so when the veil was folded in half it would have a tier.  I hand stitched a four inch piece of white satin cord on the spot I marked leaving some slack to create three loops.  Then I attached it to my hair using 6 jewelled bobby pins.  It took a little over an hour to make and my total cost was around $15.

Did you sew the ribbon on by hand? I am trying to stitch 1/8" wide satin ribbon to the tulle on my machine and I can't get it to lie flat. Any tips?

Did my first veil out of "Veiled in Beauty", a book with tons o' instructions for various edge finishes, ways to cut for different effects and such.  Lots of the basics.  There's some big 4 sewing patterns for veils too, if you want to pick them up at a sale for the idea

I have this wonderful project going for an idea for a beautiful veil.  I would like some opinions from anyone who has been or will be married soon.  A picture of what I am making is at this location.  It is a tatted veil which I estimate will take me at least a year to do.  Would you wear it?

I just tacked it along the edge - just a running stitch through the middle of the ribbon, you couldn't tell at all!

I couldn't see the picture, but I bet it's gorgeous! Would it be for yourself or someone else? If it's for someone else, I just recommend having several candid conversations with them first about it...most people have very specific ideas about what they want to wear on their wedding day, and when someone gives you something that doesn't fit with that, it's awkward. So ask first if it's something they'd want.

If it's for you, yes, absolutely!
