Margaret, yes there is a process for reducing the ease in knits. It's also dependent on the stretch factor. There's a topic under "Pattern Modifications, Design Changes... " on the message board that discusses adjustments necessary for conversion. Those are the conversions I used for this design.

I love the neckline on your dress! It's a nice, simple but interesting design. I haven't drafted anything for knits before; I'm guessing you have to adjust the ease for different amounts of stretch?

That looks terrific! Much more stylish than the t-shirt dresses from Lands' End, et al.
