Q&A with MsKnitSew

Davesmom asked:
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.
MsKnitSew answered:

Amazing job on what looks like a difficult pattern I don't think I would have the courage to try this.,
MsKnitSew answered:
Thank you. It's actually a very easy pattern.
Linda74Sews asked:
Lovely dress - great style, How did you like working with the ponte knit?
MsKnitSew answered:
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.
MsKnitSew answered:
Thank you. Try using an edge stitch foot to keep things straight.
MomGrandma asked:
