I found the netting at Pacific Fabrics and the local costume store.  I needed a darker netting (ivory to gold) so it was a little harder than usual to find, but both stores were within a half mile of my house.

Edited to add: I just googled Knoxville fabric stores and found a ton of places that are likely to have it.  Have you tried JoAnn’s yet?

I got mine on Etsy for about $6+ shipping, but save-on-crafts has some as well.

Have you found a good tutorial for this? I’ve looked around, but haven’t really found anything I am super excited about.

I bought a ready-made veil that was JUST netting (no clips) from Something Bold. I then attached it to the headband I wanted myself. Saved me the hassle of forming it to the right shape, so semi-DIY.

I just bought French veiing from hatsupply.com.  French is softer than the Russian – it depends on what you want.  I’m DIY-ing it, too. I found great instructions here: http://bit.ly/cb4WJx

I bought a kit off of etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/10eisha it was $15 WITH shipping! They come in both white and ivory.  The instructions were pretty easy, but it turned out too short for what I was trying to do. David’s bridal has a blusher length one for $25 (also in white and ivory) that you could buy and then either keep as is or use the material. You can also Google Russian veiling and it brings up a bunch of site that you can order from.

Good Luck!!! 🙂

I did exactly what Zooray said! Same etsy sller and everything. I wanted mine short, so it ended up being just what I hoped for!

I found that if I searched for Russian veiling I found a ton of options. I was searching something else before, maybe with netting, and had no luck.

i bought my russian netting at http://www.laceco.com. after reading about the differences between russian and french netting, i thought it would be stiff but it’s pretty soft. i found this birdcage tutorial here. looks pretty simple but i havent tried it yet.
