I still haven't managed to get photographs taken of myself in my gray wool veil, but it occurs to me that I have a quantity of white linen that I'm highly unlikely to use for the bathrobe I originally planned to make out of it.
It would be simple to make a wimple and/or a band to pin around my head. Each of these items would open different possible looks for wearing the veil. At the rate I'm going, I could easily make more items before my husband has time to help me with the photos. The wimple could serve as my item for the "Re-Use" category in next year's HSM, which makes the idea of crafting a new one more attractive.
