I wasn’t going to rest until I had at least given the d.i.y veil a crack.
Last night was the night. I got home from work and late night shopping at 9pm. I bought this:
For my Kitchen Tea tomorrow.
I whipped the tulle out and went for it. Threw caution to the wind. It was only $9 a metre anyways.
This veil is 2.7metres long and 1.5 metres wide. But when I looked up “Cathedral Length” It says it is normally 3.05 metres long and 2.74 metres wide. (120inches long by 108 inches wide)
Well you can have it 54 inches, 72 inches or 108 inches. Depends how full you want it to look.
Next time. I will get 3 metres of tulle. (the width of the tulle off the err, ream…, I don’t know the word) is 2.7m. So then I can make a PROPER cathedral veil. (with the least amount of cutting)
I think it does need to be a little longer. I didn’t have shoes on.
I think the trim could have more DRAMA. Be a bit wider… What do we think about beading?? (Possibly be too heavy to do the ‘fly away’ shots)
OMG… too many things to think about.
Anyway, I was pretty happy with the veil. Only took 1 hour to make it. (I didn’t sew the trim on it though) only pinned.
I might make this veil shorter, and either sell it on etsy or wear it at the reception.
Tomorrow is my Kitchen/Shower. (kitchen tea, bridal shower) First Saturday off in 5.5 months!!!
Sooooo excited. My nails look horrible. I need to paint them, buff them, stop picking at the side of the cuticle…. I need to get some tan on me. I am pasty like a vampire. (I once had olive skin… a long, long time ago… when lunch breaks existed and 8 hours of sleep. Walks in the sunshine with Mr W.) Yes when all that occurred.
At least I have something to wear now.
I have a crazy deadline to meet tonight! I think I will be at work ALL NIGHT LONG!
