As most of you know, I don't do a lot of bridal gown alterations any more. Today I have a veil to work on and I would love to have your thoughts.
The bride's mom is constructing the veil. She has assembled it and attached it to the comb. You can't tell from these pictures, but it has a blusher also.
After she sewed a small strip of beads to the bottom edge, it began to "ripple". The beads are lightweight and they are woven together with some cotton thread.
Here is the veil as it hangs from the comb. See how wavy the bottom is? The bride doesn't want this.
Here is a close up of the bottom edge. You can see that the beads are definitely not straight across.
Here is a closer look at the beads. The seem to be lightweight to me, but they do add a bit of weight to the whole thing. Let me know what you think. Either leave a comment here, go to the "Contact Me" button on the left, or add a comment on Facebook.
Thank You ...Thank You ... Thank You ... for your help!
