Sewing Techniques - How To Sew A Gusset

Hi Sewing Friends:

Sometimes I find some very good answers to your sewing questions right here on the web. So, instead of writing another article, I will refer you to a site or post the information here for you to read.

I hope they help you.

For those of you having problems sewing gussets, I thought I would post a link to this article by Ragnar Torfason. He has a historic clothing sewing site with a pretty good explanation of how to sew gussets. Go to the website:

Tempus' Sewing & Garb Accessories Weeb Site

See how Tempus Sews in Gussets

The most important sewing tips I can add on how to sew gussets is to reiterate what is in the article, i.e.;
  1. Interface the slash
  2. Reinforce the slash using very short stitches (18-20 per inch)
  3. Take a stitch or 2 across the "point"
  4. Cut right to the "point"
  5. Match the garment stitching line with the reinforcing stitching line on the gusset
  6. Stitch very carefully with short stitches
  7. Press well
If you have any questions, or a sewing related article or site that you would like to recommend, please let me know.

To Your Sewing Success,
