I made my own mantilla veil, wanna know how? (w/pics)

Recommended Posts

So for those brides who can't stomach spending $150 plus, on a veil that you will wear for 15 minutes...I feel you!

 

I looked at manitilla veils in store, I looked at them on-line and I just couldn't imagine spending the cash and/or not seeing it in person before deciding it was for me....which brings me to deciding to make it for myself.

 

Step by step guide:

1) Find a fabric store that offers a variety of lace

2) Purchase tulle in the length of your choice and buy enough lace to surround the paremeter. For me the tulle = $4 (for waist-length) and the lace had beading and cost $50 for 2 meters.

3) Cut the tulle into an oval

4) Hand sew the lace around the edge of the tulle - if you don't know how to sew, ask your mom or your aunt...

5) Sew a comb (purchased at Micheals) at one end of the oval, or use bobby pins to affix it to your hair the day off

6) DONE

 

Here are some pics of mine:

that looks great, thanks for posting the directions, I have to admit when I saw your pics earlier I fell in love your veil. I was going to make a plain one, but now I am going to go get some lace and try to do a mantilla.

I just looked at your pics earlier and was thinking how much I liked your veil -- I can't believe you made it! Thanks for the instructions!
