DIY Alencon Lace Veil
The DIY veil project set-up, in progress.
After hemming and hawing about what to put on my head for the ceremony, I finally decided on making a two-tier cathedral Alencon lace DIY veil for the wedding. Here’s how it became a thing.
CUTTING THE TULLE
You’re supposed to use the stronger and more expensive embroidery tulle, but I used the cheap stuff. About a dollar per yard. Granted, I did have to cut two different veils in the end since the first one ripped (again, cheap stuff). Another thing is, you have to use 108? wide tulle for the cathedral veil, otherwise it will look like you’re dragging a ribbon around like a Russian rhythmic gymnast.
