Updating my mom's veil

My parents got married in 1955, and my mom thought it would be special for me to wear her veil for my wedding.  It's in pretty good shape, but definitely dated.  Does anyone know of a place that could re-do the tuille on it and update it a bit to match my dress?  She's ok with me making alterations to it - as she sees it, she'll never wear it again.  The headband piece is a pretty good match and is in good condition, so I think I'll try to keep that as-is and add the rest of the veil.

    Are you going to a seamstress for dress alterations? Perhaps she (or he, I realize I'm making an assumption) could help you with that. I would've trusted my seamstress to do something like that.
