In Genesis 38, Tamar took off her widow's garments and veiled her face in order to have sex with her father-in-law, Judah. However, she did not use those garments as a veil, because Judah would have recognised her instantly. She disguised herself as a Temple prostitute and wore a veil. She knew that if Judah believed her to be following a sacred calling, he would not try to remove her veil, and her identity would remain secret.
