Cute top! It looks very nice on you. As for sewing hems on jersey, I've had a little better results with hems and seams if I very gently stretch the fabric while I'm sewing so that both layers feed through at the same rate.

Nice tee! You did a great job on it. For hemming knits, sometimes I use a regular zigzag and sometimes I get out my twin needle. I usually leave the hem edge raw since it won't fray.

What a cute top! I agree w the double needle & you even might try a walking foot.

Very cute... I love the color. You can use a twin stretch needle to do the hem.

Cute top. Love the sleeve length and higher neckline. For the hem, I have tried using a double needle and my walking foot, and I'm still not happy with them, so I hand hem. Looks neat and really takes little time.

Very nice. I made this last week and I'm wearing mine right now! I agree that it has a much nicer shape than one would guess from the pattern envelope.

Great top! Try wash a way wonder tape for the hem or tear away stabilizer with either the small zig zag or double needle. It will help prevent the stretch out while sewing.

Nice top! This is one of my fave patterns. For the hem, I use Design Plus Fusible Stay Tape (bias for the necklines, straight for the hems). I use it on the front and back but leave about two inches free at the side seams for a little stretch in the hem. It helps prevent the waves, then I just do a narrow zigzag topstitch or use my stretch twin needle.

I love t shirts! Every style, every sleeve length, every type collar. I recently discovered STRETCH STITCH on my machine. Mind you I've had the thing for 8 yearsLOL! Anyway, this is great when working with knits that require a little stretch. Set your width to 0 and turn the lenght to the SS on your machine. Viola! A hem that 'gives'.

Coool Top! My ds also had the same problem. I suggested spray starch the hem fabric that stabilizes the fabric making the fabric not stretch, and easier for the needle to not slip. Try it on a sample, of course.
