I've found this crochet pattern and adore the style of dress, I'd love to make it, however the pattern calls for a vintage "ribbon yarn" which, having done some research I'm led to believe is similar in texture to a thin seamless organza ribbon, however to buy a suitable quantity of this is going to cost me upwards of 70 and that's online price. What I was wondering is if (ideally) anyone has tried this pattern with any other yarn type material? OR if anyone is an experienced crocheter and could reccommend a type of yarn that would be suitable for the pattern (preferable available in the UK or available to order online to be delivered in the UK) that will cost less than 70.
