Gauze veil

This veil is a sneak peek at the work we're doing for our September premiere.  The gauze fabric of the veil is half the weight of silk chiffon, and the silk floss comes from Au Ver a Soie, a French company that has been making thread since 1820.  This veil is completely hand-stitched, with a fine rolled edge and 30+ hours of chain stitch embroidery.  It’s a fussy thread to work with.  If you have a bit of a rough nail, or even a rough patch of skin, it catches the floss and fuzzes it up. It takes real hand-ballet to use it, but it is unsurpassable in shine and beauty.
