How to make black wedding cage veil hats

Gone are the days when wearing the colour black to a wedding was considered a fashion faux pas. Black is back. Whether you're the bride in all white, a bridesmaid or a guest, a black accessory adds a stylish edge. If you want to turn heads, go for something flamboyant such as a black birdcage veil hat. These hats, also known as cage veil hats or fascinators, are characterised by a piece of net veiling worn across the face. They come in various different styles and are easy to make at home using a pillbox hat or fascinator.

Skill level:Moderately Challenging

Things you need

Black nettingSmall black pillbox hat or fascinatorScissorsNeedle and threadFlower applique (optional)

Instructions

1 Cut a rectangular-shaped piece of black netting that's big enough to cover your face from the top of your hat or fascinator to just below your eyes or chin, depending on how much of your face you want the veil to cover. Make sure the width of the netting is longer than the width of your face from ear to ear.

2 Hand-gather the width of your black netting into a bunch. Stitch one corner of the netting and weave the needle and thread through each fold.

3 Tie the other end of the thread to hold the gathers in place. The length of this gathered edge depends on the size of your hat or fascinator. Leave a few inches of gathering thread to play around with.

4 Sew the gathered edge of the netting around the inside part of the hat or the underside of the fascinator. Make sure the gathers are arranged evenly so that the netting forms a birdcage shape.

5 Cover any exposed stitching on the top of the hat or fascinator with an extra flower or feather applique as embellishment. Attach it using a glue gun.

6 Put the hat on and arrange the veil accordingly around your head. Adjust and cut the netting with scissors if it is too long.

Tips and warnings

Choose netting with larger holes.

Russian net is the best as it helps keep the birdcage shape.

Cut neatly through the center of the net's small squares to maintain the cell shapes and make the veil easier to sew.
