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.Read more ›
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.

The description implied "clear, detailed information" on creating headpieces....I was not impressed with the information as it was far below my skill level. Read morePublished 4 months ago by The Beaded Jeanie
Nice to look at, some good ideas, but older types of veils in book. However, a veil is a veil and really is subject to what the bride wants.Published on April 29, 2014 by vernell green
