We already have a couple of threads on seam finishes:

Flat Fell:

and Welt Seams:

Here is a blog about the most commonly used seam finishes and how to create them.

And in a similar vein...

How to do a Pickstitch:
"The pickstitch is a strong, decorative stitch used for topstitching and installing zippers in difficult fabrics such as velvet. It is also a good way to understitch seam allowances on facings when machine stitching isn’t possible."

Pickstitch - a stitch with an indented look that you'll often see around the edge of a collar or lapel on well-made suits. To add a pretty and secure edge: http://e1.interweave.com/dm?id=91C3A9811D93C99ACE8C59E8DE93E92CB619E5D9368D54D6
