I wanted to be sure I could remember MYSELF what I did.
FIRST, I sewed a 1/4" stitching line the whole length of the crosswise grain cut piece which I cut at 2 1/2" wide. I did that so I would know WHERE TO STOP cutting the strips and not cut the entire way through the other side.
Here you can see where I sewed the whole length of the strip with white thread and a short stitch.
Then I got my 1/4" quilting ruler, and I used it to cut 1/4" wide strips UP TO the stitching line. Sometimes, I went a tiny bit through it, but that didn't matter since knit does not ravel. I tried to go just TO it though.
I applied the Steam-a-Seam 2 LITE 1/4" tape to the entire bottom of the blouse, and I ironed the fringe to the SAS.
Then I sewed the strips to the bottom of the blouse sewing just a smidgen over the white stay stitch I had sewn earlier. I just added one strip after the other. I did not sew the strips to each other.
Then I went back to the sewing machine to finish.
I flipped the fringe to the inside. (Sorry, no pic.) The fringe was down flat with the sewn edge flipped to the back side of the hem area, and I sewed all around the blouse bottom.
I love it!
I think I'll do another one.
