Ladies some of you wanted me to post the pics when I started making my veil. Well I started off a protoge and here it is.

Tell me what you think. I don't know if you can see enough detial but it's a cascade with 2 layers and swvarski (SP) crystals sewed on.

    It looks good! Just like any of the pics that I have seen retailers post online.

    When can we get a pic of you with it on? The Swarovski stones are a very subtle and stylish tough. W2G

    Thanks. I just couldn't see myself spending $200 in the store. i guess I'm cheap. hehehe I would put it on but I am looking rather like a bum. Wearing my sweat pants and I took a picture but it's absolutley hillarious! The veil sits just below my shoulders and I'll be wearing a tiara as well. Perhaps I'll go try my dress on again and bring the veil.

          Great job Melissa, that looks really really good. Good for you. Did you put the seam on as well (the ribbon at the bottom) or did it come that way?

          I don't think anyone could even dare me to put that picture on this forum! It's horrible.

          It took me quite a while to make. I worked on it all last week and spent a few hours on it at a time. It is VERY TIME CONSUMING and those lil crystals are hard to sew on.

          I got 2.5 metres krinalin for the fabric and sewed the ribbon on after. I just got really thin white thread to work with (you can barely see it). Then I sewed it on a comb to place it in my hair. That was the tough part - gathering it up on the comb so it becomes puffy. I had no pattern at all. Just looked at a couple of pictures and improvised with what I wanted.

          I think it looks similar to the ones in the store but when I put it on with my sweat pants it looks goofy. I think I need to see what it looks like on with the dress.

            That was a lot of work, good for you. You must feel so proud because it looks awesome. That is way to much work for me, I will just buy one. lol But, I have a great store in the city that sells veils for an awesome price.
