That was Neil Armstrong observing the Earth and finding it blue. February was #BlueFebruary around the sewcialist world where we had to sew with the colour blue. Blue is the favourite colour of all people. This is not surprising and likely why I found it so easy to complete this challenge. I would be stunned if any of you do not have blue in your wardrobe or fabric stash. But, there must be at least one, so go ahead, stun me!
I sewed the free Tee pattern, Deer and Doe Plantain. And, for the FIRST time, the knit fabric I chose, did not cause me horror, (OH, THE HORROR) and distress. Yippee! Gillian will be so proud, sniff.
The navy/indigo is a cotton knit, thicker than a jersey and the spotty blue fabric is a 4-way stretch cotton jersey, the same fabric I used for one of my Diane Von Furstenberg dresses. I also added sleeve bands, the same width as the neckband and a hem band, double the width, to make it look more like a tunic.
The one issue I did have was with the neckband. I raised the front neckline 1.5″ (4cm) before cutting and, therefore, shortened the neckband accordingly. I also interfaced just the neckband with stretch knit interfacing to try to keep it from stretching out too much. But, when I attached it, I’m not sure why, but the neckband was way too loose. I had to remove it and cut out a new neckband that was about 2″ (5cm) shorter, but same thing. So, I removed and shortened it by 4″ (10cm)! At this length, I really had to stretch the neckband to fit the neckline, but it was the only way I could get the neckband to lie flat. Is there a special trick to knit neckbands that I am missing? Please do share.
And, this is the very first garment I’ve sewn completely by overlocking/serging! I used the overlocker to stitch all the seams together as well as to attach the neckband and sleeve and hem bands and also added ribbon staytape to the shoulder seams. I have to say, it did make things go together very quickly! I made the smallest size with no alterations and added as much length to the sleeves as I had fabric.
Today’s Blogpost is brought to you by: The Colour Blue. Blue is the coolest colour (as in temperature, not as in happening, hip or groovy) and is the colour of the sky, ocean, sleep, twilight.
You might wonder why the Blue Tee stands out so dramatically against the orange wall.
Well, blue’s opposite or complementary colour on the colour wheel is orange, which will make the blue ‘pop’. Blue gives a feeling of distance. Artists use it to show perspective. Blue is sharply refracted by the eyes. This causes the lens to flatten and to push the blue image back. We perceive that blue areas are receding and smaller. It is cold, wet, and slow as compared to red’s warmth, fire, and intensity. (To learn more about the colour red, go to this post.)
“An executive for a paint company received complaints from workers in a blue office that the office was too cold. When the offices were painted a warm peach, the sweaters came off even though the temperature had not changed.” – Pantone
Pablo Picasso’s “Blue Period” refers to a series of paintings in which the color blue dominates and which he painted between 1901 and 1904. The Blue Period is a marvelous expression of poetic expression and personal melancholy and also contributes to the transition of Picasso’s style from classicism to abstract.
In the meaning of colors, blue relates to one-to-one communication. Blue is conservative and predictable, a safe and non-threatening color, the most universally liked color of all and is often chosen by conservative people. This is a color that seeks peace and tranquility above all else, promoting both physical and mental relaxation. It reduces stress, creating a sense of calmness, relaxation and order. It slows the metabolism and can suppress appetite.
Positive aspects: loyalty, trust and integrity, tactful, reliability and responsibility, conservatism and perseverance, caring and concern, idealistic and orderly, authority, devotion and contemplation, peaceful, calm.
Negative aspects: being rigid, deceitful and spiteful, depressed and sad, too passive, self-righteous, superstitious and emotionally unstable, too conservative and old-fashioned, predictable and weak, unforgiving, aloof and frigid. It can also indicate manipulation, unfaithfulness and untrustworthiness.

The Blues (music): The blues grew out of African spirituals and worksongs. In the late 1800s, southern African-Americans passed the songs down orally, and they collided with American folk and country from the Appalachians. New hybrids appeared by each region, but all of the recorded blues from the early 1900s are distinguished by simple, rural acoustic guitars and pianos. Most blues feature simple, usually three-chord, progressions and have simple structures that are open to endless improvisations, both lyrical and musical.
Communication: Blue relates to one-to-one verbal communication and self-expression.
Peace and calm: The color blue induces calm and peace within us, particularly the deeper shades.
Honesty: Blue is the colour of truth.
Authority: The darker the color blue, the more authority it has.
Religion: Blue is the colour of devotion and religious study.
Wisdom: Blue enhances the wisdom of the intellect.
Put some blue in your life when you want:
- calm and relaxation to counteract chaos or agitation
- to open the flow of communication
- to broaden your perspective in learning new information
- solitude and peace

It is a great top. I love blue as well and all the wonderful shades. As for the neckline, I would love to know the secret. LOL Sometimes it goes on perfect and then the next time I can’t get that thing to lie flat no matter what. Pattern review as an article about using clear elastic to stabilize it that I am going to give it a try. http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/review/readreview.pl?ID=486
Thank You Kat! Clear elastic! I just read the article and think it’s a great idea! That’s what I was hoping to achieve with the knit interfacing, but on reflection, the interfacing doesn’t make it more elastic or have recovery, it just gives it more body and keeps it from stretching too much. Thanks for the link!
You are welcome, I am always looks for tips to make things easier and look better.
I AM so proud!!!! God for your for keeping on trying until knits finally played nice! It looks great on you! Here’s how I do knit neckbands… Like you, I usually find that cutting on the shorter side is better! I hate, hate, hate a floppy loose neckband! http://crafting-a-rainbow.tumblr.com/post/61717683728/lazy-tips-for-sewing-knits-choosing-the-right-length
Thank You Gillian, sniff, I weep softly. 🙂 I only wish I knew exactly what this knit was. I got it from a sewing teacher at one of the community centres I attend, so will just have to take a swatch into the fabric store next time and hope for the best. And, thanks for the link on knit neckbands, what a helpful post! Great advice on not using the pattern piece since it’s true it will only be accurate if you are using a knit with the exact same stretch as was intended for the pattern.
Bravo; a lovely top that really suits you and a fascinating post.
BTW, recently I found out that the Virgin Mary is depicted in a blue headdress in Catholic pictures but in Orthodox art, she wear red. I wonder why.
Thanks, glad you enjoyed it! Yes, I noticed that about religious imagery, both blue and red seem to take centre stage, depending on the group. On my post on red, I had a picture of cardinals with red robes, but for this post, there was a lot of blue imagery in various religions. I think this would make a terrific thesis! Any takers? 🙂
Lovely top and blue is possibly the loveliest colour..no wait..I love them all. I also like your blog. I came here through a comment on Petty Grievances and have been reading for a while so it’s time I said Hi!
Lol, it’s difficult to pick just one favourite colour, isn’t it? I am so delighted that you enjoy my blog and have been reading for a while!! I giggle and blush simultaneously. Oh, that Pretty Grievances, she’s always bringing folks together, isn’t she? I wish you’d left your name, but please do drop by again. You know Kitty and I are always only too thrilled to have company. 🙂
Congrats on finally finding a knit that played nice!! It looks great on you – I love the colour – hey! It’s almost the same colour as my Undercover Hood! Isn’t doing a whole garment with the serger just lovely? It feels like it takes no time at all! ^__^
Blue is indeed a fantastic, wonderful colour in all shades!! It’s popular for good reason, and I am guilty of having lots of it in my stash and closet ^_^
Thanks Amanda! Yes, this navy/indigo colour is perfect for a wardrobe staple like a Tee or Hoodie, isn’t it? I have never sewn a garment with the serger and have to say, it really is fast! And, the insides are actually pretty neat. I was always afraid I wouldn’t like the look of hundreds of threads everywhere, since when I sew with wovens, I prefer to bind the seams. I have tonnes of blue in my stash and wardrobe too. Likely more than 50%.
I’ve never come across interfacing for neckbands but even with a knit interfacing I would think the properties of the fabric would be changed. I cut on the stretchier direction of my fabric and gently stretch the neckband but not the neckline as I go. If I’m really concentrating I also stretch slightly more from collarbone to second rib (rib cadge) area and less stretch at the u-bend front, shoulders and back of neck.
Good advice, thanks Emma! I tried the interfacing because when I used this particular spotty knit fabric with my dress (here: https://gjeometry.com/2013/10/01/that-70s-dress-diane-von-furstenberg/) the neckband would not lay flat, even with it shorter. I ended up folding it over a piece of elastic for that dress. So, I wanted the interfacing to make it more stable so that it wouldn’t stretch and also to bulk it up since this fabric was significantly thinner than my main blue knit fabric. So, it did bulk it up nicely, but really did nothing to help the neckband lay flat. We’ll chalk it up to experimentation. 🙂
I’ve only made 3 knit tops so I am no expert but when I made the Kimono tee from Maria of Denmark she advises you to cut the neck band 15% shorter than the length of your neck opening – then add seam allowance. It seems to have worked OK for me.
Nice, glad it worked for your top! I’ve heard that 15% rules as well as the opposite, 70% rule (70% as long as the neckline) and it makes total sense to me. But, for this top, for some reason that was not enough. My neckband was likely about 35-40% shorter! I wonder if it had something to do with the fact that it was a 4-way stretch?
I always love your posts and envy your creativity, Sweetie!
Awwww, warm fuzzy, thanks Anne! 🙂 But, noooo, no envy required or desired! I want to inspire and delight, but not induce envy. Unless, of course, as pointed out just now by Kitty, you envy me for the super rockin’ feline I have.
Its a warm respectful envy- not a 50’s Bette Davis steal your life and take all your Hummels kind of envy….
Oh, excellent! Then envy away. (Although Kitty would like you to know that you can feel free to unleash Bette Davis envy on his fabulousness.)
Kitty, you got it!
I love Blue – and your top – loving the contrast!
Thanks Nicole! The plain navy/indigo just seemed a little sad (blue, ha ha ha ha) and needed some fun print to perk it up.
Very nicely done. I think getting a neckband to fit has to do with your body. At least with me it does. The U shaped ones never lay flat for me; so I have to make knit tops with V neckbands and those do lay flat. But it does appear you did what you had to do to get it to fit and it did.
Thank you so much! And, interesting observation! I wondered about just that, about body shape affecting the neckline laying flat. I am very wide shouldered, but also very slim the opposite way ’round, front to back, so I wonder if this has something to do with it. This is a good geometry research project for me, YES!
This is so epic for so many reasons… Love it and all the fun facts!
Thanks Amanda! I was hoping somebody else would feel it! 😉 And, we get to listen to Blind Lemon Jefferson while we read / write the post. Win-win!
This top looks great Catja! I love what you did with the neck and sleeve and hem bands – they really make it stand out. And I LOVED your blue lesson, great reading 🙂
Thank You Kelly! At first I was just going to do the neckband contrasting, but then it called out in need of sleeve bands, then next thing you know, it’s got a double sized hem band! So thrilled you enjoyed the blue lesson. I like researching and writing them so much, so it’s nice to know that other folks are out there geeking out on it the same way.
Great top, the Plantain is just super easy and fun! I have yet to see one that I don’t like…
I liked your post, but as a Belgian, I have to say, blue is acceptable for baby girls, but not common, and pink is NOT for baby boys in Belgium. I have heard this before, but I have yet to find any implementation of that ‘rule’…
Thanks Wendy! I know, after the Plantain re-fashion challenge, I saw SO many fabulous takes on it, that of course, I had to make one. Peer pressure, LOL. And, I’m SO glad somebody from Belgium stopped by! I do the research but always wonder just how accurate some of the ‘folk’ rules or wisdom are in real life. I wonder if it is more true for past generations, before our time? Thanks so much for sharing how it really goes down!
Sewing community peer pressure is the only peer pressure I support. 😉
About the blue and pink, I don’t know if it’s a rule from time gone by. All I know is that when I was born 31 years ago I had pink baby-gifts and my brother had blue. I have read and heard this ‘rule’ many times now, especially in conversations about baby clothes etc, but I have not once seen a baby boy dressed in pink or a nursery in pink (nurseries for girls are usually not pink either, especially in current times, I don’t know what my nursery looked like, nor do I know what my brother’s looked like). Blue is considered okay for both sexes, but I get the impression that pink just isn’t really fashionable right now for babies. (Once the girls turn 4 or 5 years old, they get indoctrinated by cartoons and Disney, and they all want pink and pink princess dresses, but that’s quite another story, not much to do with folk rules…)
I only made a knit neckband once and I vaguely remember making it smaller and setting it in like you do a sleeve (with easing). The neckband wasn’t in the pattern though, but it worked. You wrote a lovely article on blue! Your tunic turned out very cute and it looks great with your cardi too. Hey, isn’t Kitty actually blue?
Thank You Elise! I have a lot of shorter cardigans that I don’t feel totally comfortable wearing on their own anymore, but with the tunic length tee under it, I’m loving them all over again! And, you know what, Kitty is sort of a greyish blue with peach markings. Which would explain why he is so strikingly handsome, since blue and orange are complementary colours!
Love the top. Also feel very informed about blue now 🙂 thank you!
Thanks Elaine! I feel it is my duty, to make you more informed about subjects. 🙂 Don’t know why, really, mostly just because I’m a geek and research everything anyway, so now I have someplace to share it!
No matter what knit I am using for the neckband, I always have to keep trimming them to make them lie flat. The wider the band, the more it seems to want to splay out so sometimes the band has to be reduced in width to tame it. I have never seen one interfaced either but kudos for you sticking with the project and ending up with such a funky tunic. I never wear blue…after 12 years of wearing blue uniforms in Catholic schools it seems like enough is enough.
Interesting, thanks Mrs.Mole! I actually did make the neckband a bit wider than the pattern called for, since I wanted to show off the print, so this likely had an affect on the stability and why I kept having to shorten and shorten and shorten. The interfacing was an experiment, but I don’t think it worked in terms of allowing the neckband to lie flat. It did help to bulk up the fabric so that it was the same as the main blue fabric, however. That’s so funny that you were actually mildly traumatized by blue! 🙂 I knew there would be at least one person who did not have the favourite colour of all people in their wardrobe.
This top came out great & looks so nice on you. Blue is my favorite colour . Your posts are always filled with the most interesting information & I really enjoy reading them and learning things that I didn’t know.
Thank you! You are right on target with the majority, then, if blue is your favourite colour. Glad you liked the information! I actually learned things I didn’t know when researching/writing as well. Love that.
Don’t you just looove this pattern?? I think I’m gonna add a hem cuff and arm cuffs to my next version. Threads has a really helpful video on cutting and attaching neckline binding. I’ve found the most luck with this application.
I do! This pattern does seem to fit me really well with no alterations, apart from that pesky neckband. I really liked your striped version. I just watched that video, VERY helpful, thanks for the link! I was measuring the neckline on the pattern piece and then subtracting seam allowances, but this way is much more accurate. Great tip also to sew the neckline by machine first in place of pinning hundreds of pins, then serging it.
Oooh super cute plantain! The contrast cuffs really make it . I like your blue facts too. Very clever about the subliminal effect of a blue painted room
Thank you Amy! Ya, I figured without the contrasting bits, it’s really just a Tee shirt. So happy you enjoyed the blue facts! I loved that Pantone quote about changing the colour and thus, changing the temperature. I can totally see it working too, especially in an environment like that where you spend so many hours and really get a chance to be influenced by your surroundings.
Great top! In my geekiness, I love all the research you do for your posts.
Thanks Andrea! I’m so pleased that you drop by and enjoy my research efforts. I really like doing it and would anyway, but sometimes when I’m posting, I think of some other people’s posts with fantastic professional pics and scenery and terrifically complicated sewn garments and think, is anybody going to even read this part and like it? So, always puts a smile on my face when somebody does. 🙂
Ooh. Great blue post and lovely knit top.
Thank you Annie! I had no idea that the colour blue evoked so many emotions and, interestingly so many seemingly contrasting emotions. And, I got to listen to a bunch of blues tunes while writing the post. 😉
Well done – the top looks great, and blue suits you 🙂
Thanks so much! I can definitely see why blue is the favourite colour of all. It is so easy to wear and can be subtle and classic like a neutral and also bright and funky, like a jewel tone.
Adorable as ever! Well done with the stretchy knit. I really like it layered as well with your striped sweater. I’m glad it went together easier for you this time. I’ve found that all knits are not created equal. Looks like you found a good one.
🙂 Finally a knit that sewed just fine! I just wish I knew exactly what it was, since I got it free from a teacher at community centre sewing. Will have to bring as swatch of it when shopping. One thing I do know is that it is not white on the underside like the brown thicker knit that I used for my DVF dress and it is also not paper thin like a lot of the tissue knits I’ve tried sewing with. And, of course is not the devil, like the teal coloured sueded microfibre. 😉
I think this blog might help you identify what you’ve got. It’s also full of great ideas
‘not the devil.’ LOL
Ooooh, thanks for the link, very informative post! From the pic, I think mine (navy knit) appears to be a mix of sweatshirt fleece and jersey.
I’m glad you found it helpful.
I really really like this post. So much that makes me think. I love all the art. I want to read this post over and over. I’ve been wanting to go to a new exhibit at our art museum here, but have been way too busy. This has helped fill that void at least for the weekend 🙂
oh yea, and your shirt is really adorable too.
Yay, I’m so tickled pink (and blue) that you used my blogpost for educational entertainment this weekend! And, you can also listen to Blind Lemon Jefferson as you read! Hope you get to go to the art museum soon. What exhibit is current that you are going to see?
That’s quite the title for a post, ha! Very interesting post with Catja. I had to read it twice 😀 I like that you decided to add contract to the sleeves and hem, that really elevates it to a whole new level. Kudo’s for taking the neckband off twice to rework a third time. I would have been sooooo frustrated by then. Naturally it looks really cute 😀 I often wear shorty sweaters with longer T’s or tanks too and I love that look with your Tunic and sweater a lot.
I didn’t know Blue is the most loved colour. I would have guessed green or by looking in a lot of closets, black. I guess black isn’t really a colour (or is it?…mmmmm). Our lake house was painted Bordeaux (a deep wine colour) with a bright royal blue door. We tended to stick out from the typical browns and greys but everyone found us easily, HA. Then I added a vintage screen door and painted that white. I guess I like layering things even when it comes to home decor.
I guess it’s no secret what my favourite colour is. I guess it might be a derivative of blue and green together…that’s me, middle of the road LOL. I think that ‘Sew Be It’ is such a fun name for a shop 😀 I’m going to pop over there via your link. I wish we had a fun sewing shop in Edmonton. All I’ve seen around here is Fabricland. I just bought a pile of old vintage patterns for $1 each……I must get organized and post. I just love the art on them.
🙂 I had originally named it Sew Blue February or Blue Plantain, but was bored before even finishing typing it. So, found that great quote by Neil Armstrong observing the tiny blue earth from space! And, I’m so delighted that you enjoyed the post! I’m definitely good for a fact or two. Interesting fact about black (yup, you knew I had more!) is that from a ‘light’ perspective, black is the absence of colour, since when there is no light, all is black. However, from a pigment point of view, you can mix other pigments to achieve black, therefore it is a colour.
Wine and royal blue with white sound lovely! Cheerful, but not ‘smurf house’; still very elegant and classic. I would call your favourite colour turquoise, which I think you are exactly right, it is a little blue and a little green so will have a lot of the same properties as blue.
Can’t wait to see what vintage patterns you purchased! Do you know what years they are from? I have a lot from the 70s and some from the 60s. In some stores here in the downtown area, they last for only a few hours before they get snapped up!
Interesting, so black is a colour. I never think of it as such but that makes sense.
I think most of the patterns I’ve bought are the 50′s and maybe a couple of 60′s. I think they’re so fun even if I never sew one. But who knows, maybe I’ll score a new sewing machine if I ever get into a darn house, I need somewhere’s to sew.
Great rendition of the Plantain shirt. You are the queen of research! This post is awesome and thanks so much for all the details. Growing up in South America, Prince Charming was “El Principe Azúl”, just like in Spain, ha, ha. Just like I mentioned on IG, blue has become my new black – just love it.
Thanks Andrea! I will humbly accept the title of ‘queen of research’ 🙂 Glad that you enjoyed it. That’s so interesting that along with Spain and Italy, in South America it is also the Blue Prince. Do you have any idea why this is? And, blue is so common and goes with so many things, that it really is like a neutral now.
Your top is lovely, unfortunately I can’t help with the neckline, as I’m very new to knits! I love all the information about the colour blue! I really enjoyed reading it, and you definitely win the prize for best post title ever!
Thank You Lynne! And, I’m so excited to win a prize for ‘best post title ever’!!!! I’d like to thank my parents, my cat, Kitty, Neil Armstrong and the Academy. 🙂
Wow, I’m so impressed by your round up of blue facts and tidbits! I have no idea why but the two that are hanging in my mind are the throat chakra and the “blue prince.” Maybe something will come to me later haha. Of course your blouse is perfect. I really love the block you did on the hems – it’s so perfect!!
Hey, glad you liked it! I still wonder why it is called The Blue Prince? I’ve worn the top several times already and have plans to make another. Have you sewn this pattern? The shape of it seems to fit people of various body types well.
Catja! I love your blue top! It’s very, very pretty. Even though blue isn’t my favorite color, I do see myself sewing a lot of blues! Crazy. I love reading all the little details and facts on the color. It was a very interesting read! I have to give this pattern a try, it seems like everyone is making it, and liking it.

Thank You so much Kathy! I think blue is a pretty popular colour all around. Glad you enjoyed the ‘blue facts’. I enjoy researching and writing about them! I have yet to see a version of the Plantain that I did not like.
Agh, you got to hang out with Sandraaaaaaa… How nice! But anyhow, love blue, love the top (and pants), and love you in blue! And am so glad that you’re warming up to sewing knits, I see many knit masterpieces in your future! Hugs!
Thanks Jagodas! I just ordered 5 new patterns for knits, so hopefully, the love will keep flowing and there won’t be any more devil fabric in my future.
Yipee congratulations on the successful first serged garment. It is splendid in its blue-ness and I really like the contrast bands.
No idea why the neckline was sooooo long. You’d never know it was such trouble to do cos tis lovely all done and purty.
Thank You!! I think perhaps the neckline was sagging because even if you follow a measurement ‘rule’ for knit neckbands, the amount of stretch in the knit will differ, so it may not work.
Right, probably. I have to say I normally wing it on necklines 🙂
Just found your blog via Bobbins and Whimsy. I like your Plantain tunic very much. Blue is also my favourite colour. Will go and download and make one for myself. Anita
Hi Anita, so lovely of you to drop by! I’m glad you found my blog. I hope you enjoyed the info on your favourite colour. Have fun sewing yourself a new Plantain top!
