Continuing my DIY wedding theme i'm also making my own veil. I just bought a nice lace trimmed one, no comb, from etsy and bought some lovely metal combs from ebay - total cost about £12!
First i covered my comb in ribbon. This to make it pretty and so that you have something to sew the actual veil to. The ribbon is just wrapped in between every tooth.
This is the back with the beginning end tucked in
When you come to the end sew that end in place, dont break the thread and then you can attach veil straight away
I didnt want a gathered veil, i wanted a more waterfall style one so i just gathered my veil into a point and folded over the end to make it flat.
I then just sewed it to the ribbon on the comb. Above is the back. Below is the front
And the finished product! Its exactly the effect i was looking for - a cascading waterfall kind of look :)
