can someone help me with this roll thingy?

Ask about specific settings, like fabric properties, or the difference between the sewing tools. These would be things you would expect to see in a software manual.

Twists and knots are incredibly hard to do in MD, if you can do them at all. MD thinks that all twists and knots are unintentional so it will pull them out. There are some ways around it, but it is not easy.

Here are some pattern references that may help:

Essentially, the pattern pieces are connected, and actually twisted where they are joined, before the pattern's seams are sewn. As Lori said, in MD, if you twist too tightly, the mesh will end up interacting and move through itself. My suggestion is to have a basic (foundation) dress made underneath to take any stress, and sew the twisted pattern pieces onto that, such that they are purely decorative, and not structural.
