I bought 3.5 yards of Tulle for my veil. I wanted a very long veil with a blusher and I wanted room to mess up a little. I am short (5'1") so while I was in the fabric store with my MOH we "Tried on" the veil while it was still on the bolt to see how much we neede for how long I wanted it.
I had the Jo Ann lady measure the length of the short end if the tulle doubled it and added two feet because I wanted the lace to curve up but not continue all the way up the sides.
I dropped the veil over my head to check the length of the blusher. This was too long for me. SO we adjusted it. I pointed to where I wanted to hang the veil from and had him put a safety pin to mark that point.
The I cut it.
I doubled the tulle and lined up the open end and put book on top of it because the tulle is so light if you bump it it moves.
I used this giant Tupperware top to kins give me an idea of how much I wanted it rounded out.
The I cut it.
Pin the lace so its the way you want it.
If you want the lace to lay flat around the corners you need to cut around the designs and then you will need to pin them flat and kind of fold the lace around the design.
You are going to want to glue the trim on at this point. I used tuff tote box tops to glue on because the glue will stick to whatever you glue the fabric on and it will unstick a lot easier form the plastic then say cardboard. (I learned that one the hard way ladies. Picking paper out of glue for hours is NOT fun)
Gather the tulle where it will attach to your comb.
When you are done it will look something like this.
When that's done all you have to do is sew it to the comb!
