I never had such a problem but i also have heard about the soaking in solvent as a good way of " cleaning" an old machine.

It could be you need more crotch dept. ( not even sure if i'm spelling it correct)
By that i mean the angle of the backseam could be wrong for your body type.

If you put on the pants that you made, are there any "lines" showing up in the fabric??
Easiest way to look for them is just have someone else take a picture while you stand like you normally do.

I bought 2 dresses at the second hand shop today to alter, I don't know what I was thinking. I'm in the middle of a move, lol. I will remind myself I should enjoy the sewing I do and not make it a panic attack of "where the heck did I pack ____?!"

Thats nothing....
I bought a new dress yesterday morning ....
By yesterday evening i was so anoyed with the way it fit i just took it apart and made it again lol.

Yes ,stripes would work great i agree.
Should have bought that striped fabric that was on sale today......damm.....

I'm just gonna make the first one in a black with white stars kind of jersey.
But i have a feeling i'm gonna be making a few off these.
It's just a really easy dress to wear and dress up or down as needed.

Think you are talking about a coverlock machine stitch .
Can't do them on normal machines .

If you want a hem stitch that looks like it and  has some stretch to it you use a twin needle like Steiconi said .

I cant figure out how to make the top part of this dress:

It is somehow knoted, but i cant figure out how its done .
I have the dress right next to me , turned it every way possible and still dont see it .

i suspect it is somehow done like in this tut : http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/dress-with-knot-front-032012/instructions/1

But in the dress i wanna make there is no seam in the middle .
I'm not seeing something and i just cant figure it out ..... Huh
