Q&A with MsKnitSew
I love your dress!! How long have you been sewing. You seem fearless and courageous. I wish I had less fear when it comes to sewing. Did you use the size that fits you or did you go a size up or down. I have no experience sewing with knits. Your dress is lovely.
Here is a link to my review of this pattern. I gave a little more detail. http://sewing.patternreview.com/review/pattern/80860
Amazing job on what looks like a difficult pattern I don't think I would have the courage to try this.,
Thank you. It's actually a very easy pattern.
Lovely dress - great style, How did you like working with the ponte knit?
I absolutely loved it. It is stable, it washes and wears nicely. I want some in every color!
So Sew Easy asked:
You've done a wonderful job. I've bought this pattern and never had the courage to make it - I'm sure that I will mess up the pleats. Any tips on how you got them to look so good, straight and even? Thanks.
Thank you. Try using an edge stitch foot to keep things straight.
You look lovely, the pintucks are very flattering. : )
