Hi. I assume you don't have a serger to finish the seam so you should DEFINITELY zig zag the edges with a wide zigzag stitch. Otherwise they will fray badly in the wash. And also after you turn the ruffle back inside always give a hard press, pressing that seam UPWARDS then topstitch it down so it won't go all wonky on you. Very important and it makes your stuff look not homemade. Here's a pic of what I'm talking about. The line of stitching above the ruffle.
