How to edge a veil...

jaybirdMarch 9, 2005

with satin cording??? I asked this question earlier in the sewing forum, but just happened to think of this one!!! My DGD wants me to make her veil, but she wants it edged with satin cording. My sewing machine will not move the illusion AND the cording forward at the same rate of speed, so I have a mess. I tried flexible fabric glue and it shows...does anyone have an idea for me. I'd rather not have to sew it all on by hand, but that is the way it is looking at this moment.

SINCERE thanks for any help!

I have made two veils, but neither one was edged with the satin cording (one had a plain unfinished edge and the other had the ruffled lettuce-edge). However, the link below has the best directions I have found for making a veil. Perhaps something on this website will give you some hints. Good luck!!

Just a thought--try placing tissue paper under the illusion and on top of the cording to stabilize the layers. Then trim the illusion.
