Question about stockinette stitch

Hi! How can I get a neat edge on the stockinette stitch? I’m not talking about the bind on/bind off edges. I’m talking about the side seams. Mine are so terrible that I can’t see the Vs, to mattress stitch the seams together. Help, please!

Hi AP, there are lots of videos for neat selvedge edges but they mainly all boil down to slipping the first and last stitch on the knit side and purling all the stitches on the reverse.
