Sewing Inset Corners | VideoLearn a couture expert's method for perfect inset corners.
Inset corners, in which a convex angled piece is sewn into a concave angled corner, are tricky to sew. Getting the outside corner to fit into the inside corner without a pucker, a gap, or undue bulk takes precise sewing.
Threads Contributing Editor Kenneth D. King shares his technique for ensuring a sharp corner. He explains how to prepare the inside corner to receive the adjoining piece with staystitching and careful clipping, how to align and pin-baste the seams, and how to sew the seam so it’s sturdy but doesn’t place unnecessary stitches right at the corner.
