The Heba, Mairi & Kelly Veils
An applique'd veil- using the Kelly" lace
The Mantilla veil has lace all around it, normally flat and worn on top
or at the back of the head. I use heavy corded laces for the mantillas- two of these laces- The Heba and Mairi laces- are one way laces and only look ok with the face showing- so are really only
suited to Mantilla or single layer veil styles.
All the other laces are fine as two layer veils.
This page is dedicated to the 3 corded laces.

The 3 corded laces

The "Heba" Lace veil
The "Heba" lace is also a one way lace with the cording on one face, so is only suitable for a single layer veil or Mantilla style.
The real Mairi wearing her 36" mantilla style veil
The "Mairi" lace veil.
The "Mairi" lace is a one way lace with a "face" so is not suitable to me made into a two layer veil. Only really for mantilla style or single layered.

The "Kelly" Lace
The "Kelly lace is very large- it is 8" deep. It is a one way lace with the cording on one side-the face - however it is not as heavy as the "Heba" & "Mairi" so could be made as a two layer
