Your tops look nice. I hope the men in your life enjoy wearing them.

You did very well for your first time sewing with knits and ribbing. There is a definite learning curve to the process. If you use a 4-thread overlock and differential feed, you will be better able to control the stretching. Also, there are specific ratios of fabric to opening to use when using self-fabric instead of ribbing.

Thanks Margie and Judy :) Margie, I know DH is happy with his, not sure about DS. Judy, Sorry to mislead...it wasn't my first time sewing knits, only my first time sewing on sleeve cuffs and waistbands. But I'm still new enough on the learning curve to be continuously challenged by all of it. I've been sewing the same couple patterns for myself, over and over, trying to perfect fitting and sewing techniques, rather than trying different patterns. I make so many mistakes (some very noticeable, some minor) on everything I make. The differential feed and presser foot tensions have been kicking my butt on both and SM and serger. I adjust to where my samples eventually look pretty good, but somehow it doesn't carry over to the real thing. Can't seem to figure that one out why this happens - must be part of that learning curve. :)
