Technicos: Blanket Stitch on Knits for a Scalloped Edge Finish

After focusing on doing as much as possible by the book while sewing my No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency Shirt (B5526), I had fun breaking away and just experimenting with a couple of no-sleeve/no-pattern tee shirts.

One of them, a thin jersey-type knit, just cried out for up-to-the hips slits at the side seams. My machine's decorative blanket stitch did a great job of finishing that gap, as well as providing a scalloped look to the edge.

It seems as though I've read somewhere that this stitch gives a similar effect on woven fabric, but I haven't tried it yet.
