There should be a knob or screw on top of your sewing machine that controls the presser foot pressure (consult your manual to figure out which one).  If you lessen the pressure (usually unscrewing the screw or releasing the knob), it should help with making the hemmed edge of stretch fabrics less wavy.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for this tip! I've been wondering how to get rid of that effect.

How true! (Thanks to my boyfriend for holding the top.)

Years ago, I bought a really cute top. But when I took it home, I realized it had ruched shoulders, which I really hate. It also had elastic around the ends of the sleeves, which bothered me even more. So I cut the elastic out and re-sewed it. But because it's knit, the re-sewn edges are sort of wavy. That combined with the ruching looks awful to me. What can I do? Should I cut the shoulder seam, cut some width from the sleeve, and re-sew the shoulder? Should I sew a discreet pleat to hide the waviness? Should I cut the sleeve off altogether? The most difficult part in all this for me is that it's knit. I'm pretty new to sewing. Please let me know if I need to explain this again- I know it's probably super confusing.

This is INCREDIBLE! How do you needle felt such a perfectly cylindrical shape? I've tried before, and I gave up and decided that was mostly reserved for wet-felting.

Thanks! This is a McCall's, M6240 to be exact (if you're still interested). Sorry for the late reply. I don't always have internet access!

My first commercial pattern ever! I am super proud of myself! It was actually supposed to be a dress, but it's waaay too short, so it's now a top. The colors in this picture are a bit off. It's a golden-yellow and maroon.

I have used a razor (a disposable safety razor)  to get the fuzz off a wall hanging and it worked very well!

What another innovative approach!
