Three pieces of cotton: 5 inches square; 11/2 inches square; 2 inches square.

Illustration 30. Represents Model 20 (Gussets).

Turn all the edges of the 11/2 inch square, cut off the corners that are not needed and would make the work thick, double the square into a triangle, baste, insert the right angle of it into one of the openings, and overhand in place.

Model-20-Gussets-35

Illustration 31. (a) and (b). Gusset cut of paper, and wrong side of a finished gusset.

(b) Cut and make the second gusset in paper before making it in cloth. Turn the edges of the 2 inch square, fold the opposite corners over so that their straight sides will measure 1 inch, cut off one of these corners, overhand the other corner into the opening, baste what remains of the square to the back of the model, and hem.

A gusset is used to strengthen the angle of an opening.
