I found the online instructions online here and my mom bought tulle from JoAnne's. We had some trouble visualizing the instructions and ended up not following them to a T, but we cut out the tulle to make a beautiful ivory double veil, fingertip length.
My mom had bought 2x as much tulle as we needed ($6.50 total) and we started by cutting it in half, so we had the correct size to work with. Then we were left with 2 pieces that were (approx)36 by 75 inches. We folded the tulle in half the long ways and the cut out a rounded edge at the bottom. My mom's dining room table had the perfect rounded edge so we followed that as a template. Because tulle is so light, I held it taught as it would be easier to cut.
Then we pulled the top layer up, about 4-6 inches and found the center. See my poor illustration from paint:
See how the edges are rounded? ;)
The center will be where we place the comb. The bellow illustration is how it will look (roughly!):
I loved how full it look held up next to my head and it hit right where I wanted it too! Go mom!We headed back to Joanne's and bought some beads to embellish it and my mom is going to do a rolled hem on the sewing machine and hand stitch some of the beads at the bottom. Below a photo of a rolled hem. Although my veil is ivory, so it won't look aqua!accessories. So I'll be looking for a basic comb that my mom can sew the veil on to. I think I'll start at CVS and make my way over to Sally Beauty Supply. Any suggestions on plastic versus metal?
oh and thanks mom!
