Mantilla From I Love Lucy, "The Dummy"

I love the lace on this veil. We often watch these old re-runs while sewing here. The girls love them. Lucy was so funny!

The Veil from the Ghost Breakers.

My daughter and I were watching this old horror comedy with  Bob Hope (Geoff)and Paulette Goddard( Mary). There's a Zombie, Turner Classic Films says it "pre-dates the Val Lewton classic I Walked with a Zombie (1943) by three years, and it is easy to imagine that film's director Jacques Tourneur taking his visual cue from this film.

Geoff: A zombie has no will of his own. You see them sometimes walking around blindly with dead eyes, following orders, not knowing what they do, not caring.Richard Carlson as Larry: You mean like Democrats?

But anyway, what interested me most was the veil Paulette Goddard was wearing (below). What do you think? Do you like it?

It's an oval shape veil and it's long in the back. The material seems to be sort of rigid, with a sort of flyaway effect. It definitely needs a comb. I'm inspired. You don't see a lot of the longer oval veils out in the pews--especially none like this. I think I may have to come up with one that's similar.

New Veil

The Georgia Veil

The Georgia Veil

This beautiful, sheer, silky white organza veil features both pale green and silver embroidery. Fanciful fringe patterned Venice lace trim lines the bottom of the veil. Rosebud trim adorns the front. The veil measures 56"(side to side) x 24"(front of veil to the bottom of the fringe).

St. Lydwine's Princess Style Veil

$17.95 USD

Here's a sweet little princess style veil in the white rigid floral lace. Perhaps the crisp white color with Venice lace trimming is especially nice in the summer on those hot days. But really you can wear this color and style year in and year out
 Although it's pictured here on a girl with a longer head of hair, the smaller princess style veil also is very flattering for shorter hairstyles. 
This style is timeless. The shape is a reproduction from a pattern that my mother bought in Rome in the the 1950s. 

This veil has been named for St Lydwine who suffered an ice skating accident from which she never recovered. For the rest of her life, Lydwine knew extreme suffering from several illnesses. She became a mystic and a victim soul,  accepting her pain and offering up her sufferings for the sins of the world. 

Here's Our New Paisley Wrap Veil

The Elizabeth of Portugal Veil
Paisley Wrap Veil
$42.95 USD

This beautiful covering is unique. You won't see coming and going on every head. As with all our veils it's well made. It's also as soft as soft can be and it doubles as a shawl. We give it a 10 for the serviceability factor and expect our longer veil wearers will get mass amount of Mass usage from this one!
This veil is finished with black English netting trim both sides and comes to a point at the ends. It measures approximately  58" x 20".
From a recent Papal Mass....It looks like they like to veil in South Korea. Nice to see!
