Headcoverings
#24
I am surprised people are suggesting that the OP learn to sew and make the mantillas herself. That is not practical at all unless she has plenty of time, but surely we want to get those women in mantillas ASAP. As a beginner, I wouldn't dare to work with lace unless it was ultra-cheap coarse stuff that I wouldn't want to wear to church anyway.

By the way, the kind of mantilla the OP wants is probably a doily, which is round, or a chapel veil, which is triangular. Nothing as simple as a square (which isn't that easy anyway; at least not for clumsy ol' me). My own chapel veil is actually slightly uneven, though it was made by an experienced mantilla maker.

Typical male contempt for feminine work.  Rolling eyes
