Andria came late yesterday afternoon and we had a great trip shopping for veil fabric. Her dress has a hint of off white to it so the fabric she had been given by a friend was too bright white. We were on our way to Good Will when I thought of hitting St. Vincent DePaul's first. I thought we should try to match the lace on the top of her dress. One rarely finds veils out junking. I am not sure why, but that seems to be the case. Low and behold there was a hat/veil beautifully perched atop a gown, And it matched the shade of Andria's dress (which she had brought along), And flowers already adorned the top layer, And although it went with the displayed gown they sold it separately for only $2.65! The first two afore mentioned features hugely simplify my job as chief veil constructor. We then headed to Jo Ann Fabrics where I found ribbon to edge the veil. Then we skipped over to Wal Mart and purchased elastic bands as the girl doing Andria's hair preferred her veil attached to this (as opposed to the traditional comb). Andria wants (so she shall be granted) her veil to hang down in the back, under her updo. I told Andria I wanted to make and pay for the veil as a shower gift, but with the total veil costing only $4.70 I hope she doesn't expect another gift :-).
