Sewing Inset Corners | Video

Learn a couture expert's method for perfect inset corners.

May 17, 2019

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.

For information on fitting, see Kenneth D. King’s fitting series.
