This is a great, free project from Patty Young of ModKid to practice making lettuce hems using rolled hems. Look for the blog post dated March 4, 2013.

Great way to use up scraps that aren't large enough for adults.
If you don't have a serger, you can still lettuce-edge by using any decorative stitch that will zigzag over the edge.
I just tried a remnant with a contrast stretched Shell stitch, tho it won't be as bright as multi-thread serging.
Fast project--next time I would just baste the straps on flat (they folded back) as they will be stitched down twice when you shirr it anyway. I like to backstitch at the end of the line, then just pull up a little and drop your foot down the width of it for the next line, which gives you a little extra for stretching.

A size 5 looked small in a not-real-stretchy pique when done, but it's not.
Measurements figure about 1 and 1/2x the chest for a knit.
Would this work for a woven, as it's usually twice the chest, a full 45" width for a 5 shirred sundress?
These spring fabrics in JA are $20+ yd!, shirr your own with fun prints.
For a woven without a serger, I would trying adding contrast binding or lace on at least the straps first for more color.
