A bit off topic....but it's raining outside.
It was raining outside, so I was in need of an indoor project for the day. My parents' 50th wedding anniversary is coming up, so I decided to re-do my mom's veil with new tule as it had yellowed badly over the years. $2 and one hour later, it's like new! She will be pleased. Now, if I could just get those wrinkles out of her dress. That is a challenge with frail fabric.

I bet you find a way to do that too .She will be so proud of her veil.You did a great job.
Just beautiful PL, you did a superb job.
Such a nice thing to do for your mother. She'll be ever so pleased, I'm sure. Happy anniversary to them. Being married for so long is something of a rarity these days.
Your mums bridal viel looks terrific and what a lovely thing to do for her. I hope you manage to get the creases out of her wedding dress. I'd advocate taking it to an expert as the fabric is so old and delicate.
Toni, vinegar takes the wrinkles. Like pressing a hem that you have lenghtened, using a cloth dampened with vinegar and press. Viola'
