I am new here.  I have plans to make this dress after I practice a little more.  It is the Lily Chin Lace Dress.  Has anyone made it?  If so, what yarn did you use?  It calls for Lang Golf and I can't find it anywhere.  I have looked and looked for it online and can't find it.  Is there something similar?  
Here is the lace dress and below it is a link to the yarn the pattern mentions.  Thank you.

Well, 1. its a sport weight 100% Egyptian cotton. If you cannot find the exact yarn, look for a different brand with the same specifications.
Some similar yarns include: Paton's Grace, and Rowan's cotton glace
2. they have a store search on their website so that you can try to find a store that carries it near you http://www.langyarns.ch/en/index.php?SC=mydb&db_name=Stores
3. Try a local yarn shop. Even if they dont have it, they might be able to order it for you.
4. Try signing up and visiting www.ravelry.com once logged in click on the "yarn" tab, search for lang golf. You will be able to see which users have this yarn in their stash. If you try messaging users, they might be willing to sell it to you or trade it for something else.

hope that helps!

Thank you.  I didn't even notice the store search on that website.  I signed up for ravelry.  I am just waiting for them to send me my invitation.  The message I got after requesting an invitation said it would take about 4 days.
