My birdcage veil!! A tutorial. I have been inspired by a lot of veils in the past few months.

My birdcage veil!! A tutorial

Lots. I decided I wanted a birdcage veil before I really knew what that meant, and there are a lot of variations! I wanted a big flower or other hairpiece, with veiling. Where to start?! So many types out there. From BHLDN (headbands, hairpieces, and veils): From Ruffled: From Style Me Pretty: Even ModCloth has little fascinators of the same idea: But I figured out my own style, since I have NO idea how any of those are made! My mom has lots of millinery experience, and gave me the right tools and tips to make a structured, quality birdcage veil hairpiece. The materials you'll need are:A cool flower or decorationAbout 1 yard of veiling (sold in bridal departments of fabric stores or online)About 1/3 of a yard of hat wire (I suppose you could use some other kind of wire in a pinch... needs to be lighter than a coat hanger, but heavier than chicken wire)Buckram, a sturdy hat form material, cut in an oval shape.

Rick Rack Rosettes

From a distance you really can’t tell that they’re made out of rick rack! Yes, rick rack! She shared how to make them with me, and now I’m sharing with all of you readers! The wow of the rosette comes from a few simple steps! She found this tutorial, in Portuguese I believe. First, cut 2 strips of rick rack. Then twist the two pieces of rick rack together, like this. And then run a stitch down one side to hold it all together. Like so. And to make the flower, you just start from one end and roll it up. Keep rolling. Until you have this–and then tuck the little tail under and hot glue it down. 10 Beautiful Fabric Flower Tutorials. It is spring!

My fiancé, Ethan, and I are getting hitched in September at a place with indoor and outdoor space available to us. I’m having my mom’s wedding dress altered and the puff sleeves removed, so I decided to knit something to put on in case the evening gets chilly. I used Vine Lace, my very favorite lace pattern (as you may have noticed from a past web-letter), taken from Barbara Walker’s Treasury of Knitting Patterns. Once you get the hang of it, it’s easy to work. For the yarn, I used Posh, a cashmere/silk blend from CEY’s luxury division. The Yarn: Posh — 70% silk, 30% cashmere Posh is a blend of 30% cashmere and 70% silk. The Stitches: Although Vine Lace is my favorite lace pattern, it may not be for everyone. Loose Tahitian Pearls.
