Pants!

So, I was trying to make harem pants, but came up with this instead. They are kind of like exercise pants, with a tight top and loose in the legs. The only problem is I didn't realize I needed to make sure the patterns on both legs matched up...n.n so these are a fail. This is also my first time sewing with a "stretchy" fabric. This fabric is one-way stretch. It was in the clearance section at Joannes--and for a reason, I think. Whenever I sew, even with the stretchy stitch on my machine, sometimes the stitches create holes in fabric that fray the seams. I can't figure out why and changing my stitch from the straight-stretch stitch to the zigzag stretch stitch didn't help. Does anyone with more sewing experience know why it did this or what I did wrong?


 Anyway, I love the print and might try to make it wok out somehow!
