    I don't have much sewing experience. SERIOUSLY I think ANY ONE OF YOU could make your own veil. I am no martha or veil designer by any means. All it is: a comb, krinalin, krinalin ribbon, and crystals. Oh and the only things you need are thread and needle. I did it all by hand.

      Great job Melissa! I'm impressed. I couldn't spend hundreds of dollars on a veil either, that is highway robbery!

              Okay, so where did you get the directions to do this, I might attempt it because I want a longer veil than the one my sister gave me. and I like the ribbon at the bottom look too. I guess it won't be that expensive to try it and see how it works out

                  That is So pretty! I'm very impressed! My friend Monica is thinking of possibly making her own veil too...I think this will be a sort of confidence booster for her to see that someone else has done it and it looks great.

                  I agree...lets see some pics asap!!

                    Melissa, that looks great! I'm really impressed! There is no way I could have done that~I can't sew at all! Nice work! I'm sure it will look very pretty with your dress!
