Complete Project: Simple Bridal Veil, skill level 3
Looking to save some money and make your own wedding veil? Surprisingly, making a DIY bridal veil is not that difficult. And double surprisingly, you can usually make one for less than $15. Seriously! If you have basic sewing skills, you can get it done in just a couple hours! Your biggest challenge with this DIY project is figuring out what you want your veil to look like (fullness, layers, length, added decoration, tulle color, on comb/clip, etc.), and where on your head you want to wear it. Once you have that decided, you'll be on your way in no time...
You will need:
Step 1: Measure from where on your head the veil will be down to where you'd like the longest layer of the veil to hit on your body. Gather the veil with your hand and experiment with some 'mock' looks. Tip - if your dress has a detailed, ornate back, consider having a one-layer veil so it doesn't cover up the back of your gown.
Use a needle and matching thread to run
a very loose straight stitch along the top end (where it will
eventually be attached to a comb or clip). Put a knot in your
thread on the starting side. Go all the way across, spacing
your stitches 1/2" to 3/4" apart. Next, pull tulle to one side
to gather it.
Congratulations - you just made your own wedding veil! Way to go! We knew you could do it...
