 So I'm not engaged or even close but like every girly-girl  I comb through wedding magazines and such for "future reference"  I always planned on making my own wedding dress, but I never thought about knitting one...til I stumbled on this pattern

My question is what other fibers could I use to create the floaty lace effect besides wool? (wool doesn't seem summery to me) I was thinking silk or rayon, maybe bamboo. I just don't have enough lace knitting experience to gauge lightness.

I think I would use this pattern as the bodice and attach the skirt to it.

The thing with bamboo, and probably silk too, is that it's inelastic. Bamboo stretches easily, especially if it gets wet, and doesn't spring back. Unless you block the heck out of the dress first it will "grow" as you wear it from it's own weight. Bamboo is lovely, but I'd recommend using a blend with something that will help it not droop.
