Are you 'stay stitching' the neckline of your garments?  It seems like a PITA step, but it does help stabilize that area a bit to keep it from stretching out of shape. 


Also are you using the right stitch/needles/tension for the material you are using? If you use the wrong stitch with a knit it will make your fabric go wonky.

It's hard to tell with just this picture, but from what I can see the checkered and plaid pants are made in different ways. They don't seem to have the same construction, looking at the way the pattern moves.

The checkered pants I think are a stretch material and perhaps each leg is cut as one piece and the pattern piece just flares out, however, they sew a seam up four corners or however many to give it some shape and an edge to it.

The plaid pants are definitely more pieces. I can see a long piece going all the way down the front, and I suspect that the backs are just separate pieces. So while the checkered pants would be two primary pieces, a left leg, and a right leg, the plaid pants seem to be four pieces from what I can see. They have long straight front pieces, and flared back pieces.

That is the best I can surmise from this one picture.

To be honest it seems sewn socks would not be comfortable in shoes because the seams would be pressed against your foot.
