Materials needed: 1/2 meter fabric (netting), 3m lace, white thread, scissors, a measuring tape, a pencil and a weight.
Step #1: Fold the cloth into half.
Step #2: Measure the length from one shoulder to the other over your head. Mine was 40 inches, so I'll be referring to that for the following steps.
Step #3: Tie the thread to a pencil ( I used a 6B pencil). Measure its length to half of the length measured in Step #2 (40/2 = 20 inches). Cut the thread.
Step #4: Hold on end of the thread at the corner of the fabric (where the scissors is - had to use one of my hands to snap the photo). Draw the radius using the pencil.
Hint: Situate the weight on the radius so that the fabric stays.
Step #5: Cut on the lines drawn. It should like the above picture when unfolded. Put on your almost-completed-veil and make the necessary adjustments (cuttings) according to your preferences.
Step #6: Sew the lace on the edges and its ready to be used for the next Holy Mass!
Here's another photo of a veil with a different pattern of fabric and lace, having a longer length.
