Naturally, as a girl who loves lace, pearls, and all things frilly, I love mantilla veils. I, however, do not love their price tag. By now, I’m sure you all can guess what I did. That’s right, I made my own mantilla veil.
With a lot of help from Sister Spring Roll, we turned this:
Sister SR might have killed me if I posted the whole photo (it’s just picture her pretending to drink a bottle of corked wine with her mouth wide open).
Want to give making your own mantilla veil a shot? Here’s what you’ll need:
- A yard or so of tulle (depending on the desired length)
- Alencon lace
- Clear sewing thread
- A needle
- 3” clear comb or bobby pins.
First, cut tulle into the desired width and length. We cut the tulle 34 inches wide by 20 inches tall.
Next, carefully sew the lace around the veil edges using clear sewing thread.
Last but not least, using the clear thread, sew the top of your veil to a 3” clear comb. If you do not want to use a clear comb, you can attach the veil to your hair using bobby pins.
