There are no complex angles or linings or button holes or zippers to line up or anything like that. If you could not learn to hem a piece of lace within a day or two then how the heck do illiterate Chinese peasants make clothes for 5 billion people. They would need to be trained for years.

They are trained for years, starting at a very early age, learning to sew by hand and machine, if someone is lucky enough to have a machine.  Most Asians learn how to make clothes without using patterns, too.  They weren't born knowing how to do those things but they learn in early life. 

But you keep overlooking the real point here: the OP asked for sources of inexpensive veils.  If she, or he, had wanted to make veils, the OP would have asked for sources of free or inexpensive lace and for directions on making mantillas.
