Guys! Spring is upon us. Not that I can complain much about the winter because it wasn’t really much of one here. But still. Longer days, sunnier skies and less clothing is always fun.

Enter: The Gold Crop.

I had this material lying around for a while…(after I stole it from my mom). It’s a really pretty gold stretch knit with lots of texture and an insane amount of stretch. So I wanted to test out my stretch knit sewing skills to see how much stretch I could get after it’s been sewn together.  Knowing that, I wasn’t willing to spend too much time constructing something a bit more complicated if the stretch didn’t work out the way I wanted.

But success ensued! Using a twin needle and a lesser tension, I was able to maintain the stretch.

In my initial approach to this top, I tried to hem the seams…NOPE. Not necessary at all. So I removed the hem and left as is because there was no unraveling at all. Honestly, not having to hem if I don’t have to is my favourite thing because it’s such a time saver. #Winning

I can’t even tell you how easy this thing was to make. Real talk. It literally has only 4 seams: one in each shoulder and then the two size seams. In fact, let me show you how easy it was. Check out the video below…
