Bridal veil - a master class on how to do it yourself, photo


Some modern brides when drawing up their wedding image refuse to use a veil. Girls consider her a relic of the past and a conservative detail of a wedding dress. They prefer decorating their heads with artificial flowers, hoops, ribbons, tiaras. But the veil gives the bride mystery, airiness, touching. Even if you decide to abandon this wardrobe detail on your wedding day, then such a wonderful accessory should be present on the bride’s head at least during a bachelorette party.

Veil for the bride

What fabric is better to use for a homemade veil?

Traditionally, veils are sewn of light translucent materials: tulle, chiffon, tulle, organza, lace. But choosing the material for this accessory, you should focus on the wedding dress: its style, fabric, decor. So, in case of using silk material in the bride’s dress, it is recommended to choose lace for a headdress. Soft drop-down lace accessory goes well with silk or satin outfit.

A common fabric for veils is tulle, which is a fine mesh. It can be both soft and more rigid. Choose the level of stiffness of the material depending on the desired result. For flowing multi-tiered accessory use soft varieties of fabric. A mesh with increased rigidity will make it possible to produce a single-tier, solemn, well-kept veil shape.

Stages of creation

  • To create a simple light veil for a bachelorette party, not only white tulle or tulle is used, but also multi-colored fabrics. Fatin, a width of one and a half meters, cut into three parts along the length: 30 cm, 45 cm and 60 cm.
  • The initial stage of sewing a wedding headdress

  • Prepared three layers of tulle must be sewn together. Place the fabric on a flat surface. With the lower layer, place the larger length (60 cm), then the 45-centimeter length, and the smallest (30 cm) on the top. Using a sewing machine, step back from the edge of 1 cm, sew these pieces together. Set the stitch as large as possible. At the beginning and end of the stitching line, do not.
  • Assembling parts of a homemade veil
