This chiffon veil makes a dramatic mantilla veil. It is a cathedral veil 120 inches long. Mantilla veils are flat non-gathered circles or ovals. This mantilla is an oval because silk chiffon only comes as wide as 42 inches. This chiffon veil is made of diamond white silk chiffon with a ribbon edge, 3/8 inch wide diamond white silk ribbon. A Swarovski teardrop crystal is sewn every 9 inches apart all around the silk ribbon edge. A 4 inch clear plastic comb is hidden under the ribbon edge for attaching this cathedral veil.
- Chiffon veils are opaque, shadowy images can be seen beneath. Bridal illusion wedding veils are more transparent and allow clearer images to be seen.
