    It probably depends on how sophisticated your serger is, but I would serge the edge with a 3-thread overlock stitch, turn it up about 3/4 inch, and then stitch it on the outside using the sewing machine with a wide-set twin needle. This gives double row of stitching often found on RTW, with some stretch built in.
