The supplies: Tulle - I bought 2 yards of the double wide stuff for $5 at FabricLand White thread Needle Sewing maching Scissors Comb - most people recommend the wire combs, but I prefer plastic because my hair is very fine and slippery. I bought this one at Ardene for less than $2 [IMG ALT=""]http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/content/type/61/id/165591/width/350/height/700[/IMG] I'll wanted a fingertip length 1 tiered veil. So I started by cutting a square of tulle, I folded this in half and then folded the bottom up to make a triangle. I tried to take lots of pictures because I knew it would be hard to explain.

I then cut along the traced line with the tulle still folded.
