I'd like to make some yoga pants, but I really want a pattern with a crotch gusset. I have a pair of shorts by adidas with a diamond-shaped gusset at the crotch that I really love and would like to duplicate. The gusset is so much more comfortable than regular seams at the crotch.

Is there a pattern like this?

I just purchased KS 3345 and it has leggings with a diamond shaped crotch gusset (not Yoga Pants) I think I will try and transpose the gusset from those into the next pair of Yoga pants I make. I could try and trace it off for you. I only looked briefly at the technical drawings, but I think the legging crotch curved looked the normal shape, so the gusset probably just inserted at the seam intersections.

Sue, are you sure it's KS3345? I just checked their website, and 3345 seems to be loose, casual unisex pants.

Jalie 2216 is a pattern for cycling clothes which includes tights with a gusset. It's not exactly a diamond, more like an oval pointed at both ends. Maybe it could be adapted to fit yoga pants?

Edited to add: Rochelle Harper's book "Sewing Outdoor Gear" has some advice/directions for adding gussets to pants. You might be able to find it at your local library. You might also find that copying your Adidas shorts is your best option!

I often mentally transpose internal numbers in a series of four or more, so I knew exactly what the problem was! It's 3455.

I have this pattern and have tried it, but found it unacceptable for my purposes. The reason is that the gusset is perfectly square with sharp corners, and it feels bulky and weird between the legs. What I'm searching for is the skinny oval gusset that you see in things like Danskin or Mariko tights, and so far I have not found a commercial pattern with this feature.

Elona; Thanks for the correct Kwik Sew number. Check the gusset shape on Jalie 2216 Scroll down the page for #2216, then click on sizing info/back of pattern to see the shapes of the pattern pieces. Is this the kind of gusset you're looking for?
