But the evening was joyous. I helped one of Tom's friends from college choose what style wedding veil she wanted.
And then I made it!
We went for a drop veil with a scalloped edge. Not too full on the head and with a comb. She's going to choose some beads to go in the scallops and then some to be scattered over the veil itself. She will make a lovely bride. I made a pretty box for her to keep it in as well as part of my trying to finish every job to the highest standard.
I used some of the offcuts to make a tulle bow for the box, and that got me inspired. I made a tiny tulle bow to go on a hair pin and I made
a birdcage veil with roses at the back. If anyone is interested in the bird cage veil let me know!
I may even start taking bespoke orders. It was sooooooo much fun. I really need to invest in some sewing scissors to make sure I can cut as cleanly as possible.
