Like all the dresses - I see from your blog you were having trouble with the stitches. With a knit you should use the smallest (narrowest) setting zigzag your machine will take and longer stitches - using a needle for stretch/knits will help but whatever you did you turned out some nice dresses.

Cute dresses! Knits vary in quality and I have become picky with where I buy knits. Also, try using a ball point needle and setting your machine on a slight zz and longer stitches like Carolyn mentioned. You don't need to hold the fabric tight or pull it...just let it feed through. Good work!
