I was searching for iridescent chiffon and found a couple of sites for event planners that had chiffon, tulle, netting and all sorts of fancy stuff. They only sell 20 yard bolts (58" fabric), but the cost is about $3 per yard and that is just the amount I use for a ballgown. I don't think that can be beat without heading to LA or NY to the wholesalers. Maybe worth a try?

I purchased bolts of fabric from Dharma Trading, their prices have been the best in the US. I bought a bolt of white linen for about $4/yd in Korea, and a bolt of black tulle for $1/yd at the fabric market in Seoul. I think the price you're finding is probably the best deal, how much is shipping?
