I like the selvedge stitch here. it gives you a nice even edge to seam and it's narrow enough to be unobtrusive. It looks like it will work nicely with the very pretty lace dress you linked to.

Yes, I probably worded that confusingly. I meant that adding stitches for a selvedge may affect the sizing, but keeping the first and last stitches plain rather than in pattern is a good idea and let them be the selvedges.
