Associated Press Women's Editor It's a sentimental gesture, as well as a thrifty one, for a bride to make her own wedding veil. Lc -al sewing center experts have worked out directions for two veils that are lovely to look at and easy to sew. A charming sho t veil, suitable for a home or garden wedding, is made from a square of lace and requires little stitching or fitting. Materials required are: 1 square yard of lace; 4y 2 yards of lace banding about 5 inches wide, 1 bicycle clip about Va in ch wide, ?4 yard of white satin ribbon about % inch wide and 8 orange blossoms. Dacron thread is suggested for stitching the lace. To make the veil, first cut lace banding along heavy scalloped edge. If the lace to be used for the body of the ,veil is more than a yard wide, trim it to a 36-inch square. Pin lace edging all around the square, mitering the corners and making sure the miter does not fall in the middle of a scallop. Use a half-inch seam allowance. Baste banding in place, and use the zigzag attachment on your sewing machine to stitch. If you back the lace with tissue paper, your sewing job will be easier. Remove bastings and tissue paper and tie threads with dressmaker knots. Cut away seam allowance. Clip mitered seams to a v 4 -inch j and press open. You now have a finished square of lace. Cover he bicycle clip with \vhite satin ribbon, wrapping it j around and securing with tiny i stitches. Find the middle of the j clip and pin to the middle one j corner of the 'lace square, at the i seam, leaving the mitered point of j edging to fall over the forehead. | Pleat iVa inches on either side of the slip in ^s-inch pleats and secure by tad ~"ng orange blossoms to each side. A dramatic long veil may bej made of nylon tulle with rows ofj lace stitched at intervals the entire length of the veil, giving a sunburst effect when the veil is worn. Required materials are: 31 yards of nylon tulle 57 inches! per, zigzag stitch along both sides of each lace band. Tie threads, remove bastings and tissue. Gather one end of veil to measurement of back of headpiece. Now cover buckram frame with satin or with the fabric of the gown. Pleat remaining lace banding down the middle using the ruf- fler attachment of your sewing machine, making 12 to 15 stitches to the inch and a pleat about every 12 stitches. Stitch with the ruffler down the exact center of the bftnd- ing. Now fold banding along the cente-- row of stitching so that it makes. a double row and tack. to back of headpiece about a J /4-inch from the edge. Take another folded row above this. Tack gathered end of veil to back of headpiece, under- ruffler. Finish the veil, if you like, with a lace band stitched along the bottom. Finally, slip- stitch grosgrain ribbon around inside edge of headpiece — and you're all ready 'for the wedding march. the birdal veils pictured is manufactured by David E.
