Not the most complicated part of bridal attire, but having never made one before a good tutorial would be a great help.
The only part I know for sure is that we're using a single comb headpiece. It's the attaching the tulle layers to the comb part that's a big unknown for me.
Thanks for any suggestions. : )

There are good instructions with pictures in the book "Bridal Gowns: how to make the wedding dress of your dreams" by Susan E. Andriks.

The information in this book about veils, types of fabric, how to cut a veil without a pattern, assembly, and attaching the vail to a headpiece.

It says to gather the edges of the veil and stitch them tto the underside of the headpiece. If you are using a comb only, gather the edges of the vail and sew the comb to the gathered edge with a long whipstitch.
Hope this helps.

It's a custom-made designer original. I made it myself.

It's been a while since I made one but I recall that cutting it out was the toughest part. if you're not putting an edging on the veil, use a rotary cutter to cut the veil.

Good luck

The hardest part for me was finding a large clear comb. I used a pattern, I think it was Kwik Sew, It was 2 layers, but they weren't seperate. The piece started as a large oblong and you folded it about 2/3s down into the 2 layers. I gathered it up with machine stithing and hand stitched it to the combe. Before I stitched it to the comb, I took narrow satin ribbon and wove it between the teeth, over the top of the comb. That gave me something to anchor the stitches to.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

Hi -- I made a cathedral length veil and a blusher veil for my daughter's wedding last August. Most of my information/tutorials came from the PR website. Try searching "bridal veil" in patterns. I would keep searching on this website as I think there are other locations that have good information. Making a veil is not a hard project and for me was very rewarding. Good Luck!

Thank you all for some very helpful tips.I didn't know P & P did a bridal book. In looking for it at our local library I did come up with a different book called "I Do Veils" by Claudia Lynch which has some good info too.
I think the hardest part is just getting it started, since hats and their kin have never been on my experiment list. Still, it will save to do it myself in material costs if nothing else.
