Ruched Sleeves and Blanket Stitch

I've been playing with ruching for the last couple weeks and I also finally gotten around to mastering the blanket stitch. It's a very nice decorative stitch that can be used on all sorts of edges, necklines, sleeves and hems. I figured out how to do it on my serger but wasn't quite satisfied with the size of the stitch, so on this cotton top I did it by hand (couture). The sleeves feature machine embroidery and ruching. It's a light, breathable summer top :)
