I hear you on knit hems stretching! I recently discovered a double needle for hemming knits, and it has really worked well for me. I never like the idea of interfacing in knit hems, cause i don't like them ending up stiff. But there is some sewable wash away stabilizer stuff out there that i just really want to try. Good luck!

I have this pattern in my stash and it sounds like I would have the same challenges as you. Thanks for the heads up!

I'm sorry you had so many problems, but I think it's still a great basic for these chilly winter days. Sometimes we just need to slow down and stop and think when we get overexcited in sewing (that's when I make my stupid, inpatient mistakes!).
