I've got to be honest, this was the part of making this veil that I was dreading the most. Mostly, because I had no idea how I was going to pull it off! The comb on the top of the veil (see my post Kate Moss Wedding Veil Re-creation Part 3 here) was the part that held up the majority of the weight so now I had to find a way of holding up the veil in the back while creating a poof. But as I was making it and talking with Shelby through a turn of events, she wanted to changed the design, which was fine by me! (actually ended up making my job easier!)
First off I measured 9 1/2 inches from the top comb' center straight down.
Then I just angled it into where the end of the combs were. You really will need to take some time with this step to try and find the right "shape" of the "cap" part. Be sure you use a FABRIC SAFE DISAPPEARING pen (not a washable one) or sewing pins to mark your sewing line. *NOTE* don't make a round curve or you'll mess up the shape of the poof. Just angle it like pictured below.
Sew a basting stitch along this line and gather it up then tie off your ends to keep your gathers in place until you can sew over with a permanent stitch on the machine.
Here is what it looks like on a person's head.
And that's it! As you can see it doesn't exactly look like Kate's but this is what Shelby wanted and as her lowly seamstress, I can only do as I'm told. :) :P
We're almost done! just one more step and Shelby can get married! ('Cuz you know, the wedding can't happen without my veil :)
