I have just made a sun dress with a shirred bodice, and since this was my first time shirring anything, i didn't think to finished the top seam of the shirred section before attaching the bust portion to it. It's made out of cotton, so i'm afraid it will fray badly. Is there any way i can finish the ends on the shirred seam, while keeping the stretch?

I can't really picture what seam you mean, but if it's a regular seam on the inside, you can just zig-zag it (stretch the shirring flat while you do it).
