    Your veil looks great!! I love the ribbon detail and the crystals.

    I'm also going to try to make my own. I bought the fabric, but don't have the time yet....maybe after I mail my invites.

    Ann - why don't you try buying a cheap veil even and then adding the crystals/embellishments later? I can't belive how much the bridal stores raise up the prices for a $6 package of Swvarski crystals. It's insane!!! I got the ribbon at Micheals too. i can't remember anymore I bought alot of different stuff but majority form micheals and fabric land. Michaels had veils but they weren't flexible/flowy I found.

    Jilly- I didn't have a pattern/instructions. Sorry Hun. But i can help you out as much as I can :) It really was not hard what so ever!!!! I SWEAR I'm no expert sewer either. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Now I just hope it goes with my dress... which I'm sure it will.

        Wow, that's incredible. I don't think I could ever pull that off - I am horrible at sewing. Unless your guests know that you're making it, I bet they wouldn't be able to guess. If you don't mind my asking - how much did you end up saving by making it?

        HMM well my trip to Micheals was a costly one. I always go there and walk out with a million things. It's horrible. Here's the costing

        Thread: had at home would be aprox $5??
        Combs: pack of 4 $7
        Crytals: $14 ($7 each pack and I only used one pack)
        Fabric under $10 uh huh that's right

        My time: priceless!
