Welcome to Day 3 of the Inspire Tights SewAlong!

If you don’t have your pattern yet, you can get it here.

Catching up:

Need to catch up?

Check out Day 1 HERE on the blog. It’s got lots of tips for selecting your size, adjusting your fit, and cutting your fabric!

Day 2 is HERE on the blog. It includes a video tutorial for sewing the inserts (which can be a little tricky!)

The Schedule

As a reminder, here’s our schedule:

Here’s a sneak peek at the schedule:

Day 1: Supplies, Fit, and Cutting Fabric

Day 2: Sewing the Inserts (insert options only)

Day 3: Gusset (YOU ARE HERE)

Day 4: Waistband and hem

Day 5: Finishing up

Today’s Tasks:

Today is for everyone, whether you did the inserts yesterday or are going for a basic legging- we will all continue here.

The Inspires have a triangular gusset, which I find easier to install than an oval one, but that still allows for plenty of movement. My tutorial today will walk you through the process of installing the triangular gusset, and sewing your leg pieces together (front and back). Ready? Let’s rock!

Video Tutorial:

Extra Tip:

Have a leggings pattern that doesn’t come with a gusset? I wrote a blog post on the Greenstyle blog yesterday showing how to adjust your pattern to add a gusset, and you can find the triangular gusset piece for FREE here!

If you already know how to construct the leggings, but just want a straight up gusset tutorial, find that video HERE.


That’s it! Don’t forget to post your progress on the Greenstyle Facebook page, and drop me  a comment below if you have any questions!

    Kinda like the gusset, I followed your instructions, but after I sewed it on, my legs became twisted. Like spiral. How to overcome this problem ?

      Hmm, I’m not sure what happened. Could you have cut the fabric off grain?
