The next step is done incorrectly in the photo, but I will show it anyway for clarification. Here, you can see that I lined up the ban roll to the edge of the chiffon and pinned (like you would hem tape). However, for a cleaner finish (and no risk of sewing into a frayed edge that will later come undone), you would really want to pin the ban roll about half an inch from the chiffon edge, so the stitches will catch fabric that has not frayed for a more secure hem.
