Since a number of these designs call for working with knit fabrics. Here are some tips for working with knits:

When sewing the seams of your knit dress, use either a special
stretch stitch (if your sewing machine has this stitch)
or a tiny zigzag stitch. This way, your seams will stretch with your fabric and as you wear your dress.

And use either 100% polyester thread or cotton-wrapped polyester thread, both of which have a degree of stretch to
them and will therefore stretch with your fabric. Avoid using 100% cotton thread which has little stretch to it.

When sewing your knit fabric, if you find that your needle pushes your fabric down into your needle hole, try placing
paper under your fabric as you sew your seam (remove the paper after sewing your seam, and test this method first
on a scrap of your fabric before sewing your permanent seam). Or try switching to a straight stitch needle plate which
has a smaller hole for your needle to pass through.

When working with your knit fabric, if you find the edges curling up, try spraying them with starch, then pressing
them with your iron.

And to keep the hem of your knit dress from curling to the outside, try applying a strip of lightweight, knit, fusible
interfacing to the bottom edge of your dress before hemming, then turn up your hem and sew.
