Did I just read that?

From a Smithsonian Blog on why brides wear white:
" Victoria donned a white satin gown with layers of lace made by two hundred women and a white veil."

How did the veil help make the lace?

Sorry if my wording is unclear! I didn't mean to imply that the lace and veil were connected--I only meant to say that the lace in the dress was made by 200 women, and that Victoria also wore a white veil. Before her wedding, the practice of wearing both a white dress and a white veil weren't widely practiced.
