  Thank you so much for this article. My very first Victorian corset will have both gussets and gores and this will help me a lot :-D

  "12. Run a line of stitching about 3mm (1/8") from the stitch line (on the panel) around the gusset and panel seam."

I can't figure out what that means, are you top stitching along the length of the "Y" seam? Could you explain that in more detail?

  Hi, this step is just asking you to stitch around the gusset next to the seam line, in order to sew the seam allowance down neatly and, more importantly, to reinforce the strength of the seam.

  This is a great article, I am referring to it over and over while I try to get the hang of inserting bust gores. Practice will make perfect, eventually (I hope!)

  idon't understand the last step, why do you stitch on the gore or gussets 3/8th of inch on the gore or gusset?

  Hi Jose, that last step stitches the seam allowance down and helps to reinforce the seam.
