Smile How do I fray this properly?

I am making a Princess Mononoke cosplay, and I need help fraying fabric in a certain way :33
So basically, she wears a plain purple dress with a flowey skirt that's frayed at the bottom, because she's a forest princess.
(dress: http://media.animevice.com/uploads/1...princess_8.jpg)
I picked up a few dresses at the thrift store that would work really well, but I have no idea how to mess up the bottom and tear it up, without it having strings hanging out all over the place and looking gross. I want it to look like the picture, but still not just look like I took scissors and hacked at it. Does anybody have any tips on how to make it look destroyed but 'clean'?
Sorry for the strange question
Thank you so much!

I know you posted this question almost 2 years ago but sometimes questions just need answers!

I would like to direct you to this thread that addresses a similar question. They basically say that you should create an invisible hemline where you want the fraying to stop and take to the hem with a razor. See thread for more info.
