You could use any fingering weight yarn you liked the look of and got gauge with. I normally sub with Jaegar 4ply merino (because my former LYS didn't do DB yarns) and that works nicely, though it splits a bit.
I'd go with a cotton blend, or wool/cotton blend rather than all wool for a dress though. Cotton/silk would be nice too.
