  • Hep needed with netting veil

    I am having problems getting the nylon netting the flow downwards at the back of the dress. Instead it sticks up and away from the topper. The bride has her hair up so this dosnt help the veil is ony a short one that shoud fall to chest level. I think i may have picked the wrong netting, its seems to thick with little give/bend
    I dont know if i am allowed to link the the ebay shop i bought it from but the. I am at a loss at how to make the fabric fall closer to the back of the head and dress. It looks really silly stuck fo far away. i dont want to glue it down as this would look untidy and unproffesional.

    Has anyone got tips as to how to recifty this? i have take the veil of still plenty fabric left to make another one. I was wondering if there is a specific shape i should cut the veil out so it will fall correctly.

    Thank you for any helo you gave give xx

    I think if you use nylon netting this is always a problem on small pieces. It is quite stiff really in small sections. Maybe try something like a cotton lace type material instead.

    Alternatively, can you sew some little glass seed beads or something onto the base of the nylon netting just to allow it to re-establish its relationship with gravity?

      The smaller the piece you want to work with, the finer the fabric needs to be. Maybe organza ribbon would be better?

      Or else, like ejralph suggested, you'll need to use something to weigh the fabric down.

        Thank you for your replies :-)

        Umm i did think organza but was recommeded the nylon netting, though i didnt relise till it arrived how firm the material was.
        It only cost me a few pound so no huge loss but i will use organza in the future
        It may be unothordox but i used my heat gun to melt and move the material to the shape i wanted and it worked :-) It only shrunk and moved where i wanted and it looks really good.
