I ordered this book at the same time as "I Do Veils and so Can You," and this book puts that one to shame. This book does a great job of demonstrating how to cut the different shapes of veils from tulle, easy to follow instructions for various headpiece construction techniques, and a wide variety of options for embellishments and finishing. There are lots of options presented in terms of fabrics and materials, and the book suggests actual things you can buy at your local fabric store. Don't waste your money on the other outdated books out there when you can learn everything you need from this one!

I purchased Veiled in Beauty to go on my shelf of resource materials, you know the shelf you go to when the coffee hasn't kicked in at 7 in the morning?! I must admit I am very thankful that I have millinery experience as you are not shown how to make the foundation pieces such as juliet caps, crescents, wired frames and so forth. You are shown how to cover these pieces though, utilising a number of methods such as crinolin(horse hair is crinolin out here - don't trust my spelling of it), covering a buckram frame (book suggests underlining fabric with flannel, a item not easily come by in Australia any more- try pellon, a fine wadding used under quilt tops to enhance embroidery etc).

Veiled in Beauty contains some beautifully taken photographs. It also features a number of illustrations that clearly demonstrate numerous styles of veils. If you are patient, you can match some of the suggested styles and trims to the photos.You are shown how to make veils, such as single tiered veils, two-tiered veils, veils with a pouf, bouffant veils and so forth. Also features instructions for mantillas. Lace applications are demonstrated as well as edging techniques. You are shown how to make continuous bias.

Something that may be interest - you are shown how to make your veil removable from your head piece. That way you can get extra value out of your cocktail base by wearing it at your reception or even to other events after your big day. You're also shown how to make barrette bows- this might be a great idea for your flower girls? Don't forget the wreathes, made from fresh flowers either.

To succesfully use this book I would suggest that you must have a fair amount of patients and an ability to follow the written word.

I bought this book after reading the other reviews. I thought that this one would be better than 'I Do Veils So Can You.' This book has better pictures and some ideas that the other did not, but not terribly much. I do think that those extra ideas were worth buying the book for. It has more infomation on making a wire frame and decorating the headpiece. I did have a hard time understanding some of the directions for making different types of veils. I am still searching for a book with better information on making veils.

The book may be dated, but the principles are timeless. Took a fancy class which I could've skipped, because this book taught me all I needed to know to make our daughter's beautiful bridal veil. Thank you!

I am making a veil and this book has a lot of basic information. My only complaint is that a whole chapter was torn out. I ordered a used book but it claimed to be in good condition. The rest is helpful.

Veiled in Beauty: Creating Headpieces & Veils for the Bride

This is a modern up to date book with beautiful pictures and illustrations. The illustrations are clear and precise and the photographs are excellent. A novice would enjoy looking at the pictures to learn about the many types of veils. It is also useful for the more experience seamstress. What would have garnered a five star if the author added a few more illustrations about how to cut certain types of veils and, included more alternative bridal headwear.

This book was published in 2001 so I guess I cannot complain about the models and the styling being slightly old fashion so it is not too inspiring. There are a lot of photos and ideas but the instructions are not enough to be able to finish the whole look.

This was disappointing because it did not cover what I expected it was in the contents. I hope to find it in some other books in the future. I would like to thank you all the same as it is not your fault. Cheers!
