My Projects: Veils and Garters

This past week I was busy working on a custom wedding veil for a co-worker. She wanted a large and poufy birdcage veil to wear with her gorgeous and simple Vera Wang ivory dress. I got the widest netting in 18" ivory and attached it to a comb. This is the veil here, not completely finished. We are going to add more decoration when she decides what she wants. So for now we have the basic shape. At the moment she is deciding if she wants to wear it centered on her head as shown above or on the side for an asymmetrical look (shown below).
Which do you prefer?
I'll post more pics soon when it's all complete. Hopefully with the bride in her gorgeous dress!

I also made up some new garter styles for my Etsy shop, The Sparkling Cocktail! The one above and below is the Ma Cherie series. It features wide lace on the bottom, a narrow lace on top with a solid satin ribbon elastic casing. The decoration is a vintage ivory lace bow with a pink pearl and ivory satin ribbon strands.

This beauty is the Ma Fleur. Organza ribbon with narrow lace trim and satin ribbon elastic casing. The flower is handmade in the prettiest ballet pink satin ribbon with a pearl center! More colorways to come!!

Be sure to visit my Etsy shop, The Sparkling Cocktail, to see more of my handmade items!
