Sewing Rib Edge to Rib Edge

I'm finishing up a project that calls for me to sew a separate 1x1 rib piece to another piece that was started in a 1x1 rib. So I basically need to sew a 1x1 rib edge to another 1x1 rib edge.

I am in essence adding 2 shoulder straps to make a high-waisted (basically sitting at the top of the chest) "overalls". The garment is for a baby so I want to use the smoothest finishing technique. I've never sewn a rib to a rib. I searched the web and read some of my technique books but can't find any explanations on the best way to sew the pieces together.

Any help and/or links to illustration how tos would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks...Keith
