Yep I made mine, well technically in the process. It has cost me less than $40 for material, beads clips etc. I used my BM's pattern i really loved her veil but wrong colour and it had a slight scorch mark in it but what i did was brought the material, from Spotlight i think it was, and then gathered it in in the centre or where i wanted it (time consuming and frustrating but well worth it) then stiched it so it wouldn't come apart, sewed beads on and i am about to put it on a clip. I haven't got the length just yet I have my dress fitting in 3 weeks i'll know then the exact length of each layer and i will just further trace around my friends veil for the shape. Honestly if you have patience and a friend or mum to help it is well worth it.
I will show pics when it is done but looks pretty good so far. Couldn't justify over $200 in soem shops for something less basic than what i was making.
