My long-awaited dream (Crocheted dress crochet-along)

I wanted to crochet this dress from "Knit Simple" spring/summer 2007



http://thatcrochetguy.blogspot.com/ has done the top of dress - look there if you want to see!











I ordered the yarn only recently:












in these colors, which are different from the magazine's pattern










But I realized that acrylic is not the yarn that will look good after a while, and I will regret all my hard work. I need some nice substitution, some summer yarn, preferably natural blend, that will last long and will look good after washing.

The yarn is Simply Soft Brites by Caron International. Worsted weight. Gauge is 12 sts to 4"/10 cm in single crochet. using J-10 (6mm) hook.

Master Knitting Program

I'm thinking about getting into Master Knitting Program (http://www.tkga.com/mastersprogram.shtm)
for several weeks now.
Is it worth it? What did I get out of it?
Skills, feel of accomplishment, yes. Several hundreds of dollars out of poket too.
Is it worth it?
