Seam finishes for silk charmeuse: a cautionary tale

You may recall this dress:
I finished the seams with pinking shears, thinking that would be enough.  Nope.  On seams cut on the straight grain, they frayed right through and the seams started coming apart.
Oops.  Don't do that.  You need something more.  French seams are your friends.

I'm now wondering how to fix this problem.  I'm thinking I need to run another line of stitching and nuke the remaining seam allowances with Fray-Check.  Any ideas?
