how to design gussets

Hi,

I want to put an underarm gusset in a top I'm making to increase the range of motion, but I'm having a hard time finding anything on line about how to design gussets. (This is not a historical piece.) I've seen two types, a one-piece gusset and a two-piece gusset. Can anyone out there recommend a resource if I want to design a gusset, or can give me some tips?

thanks,
HT

ETA - since writing the above, I found these two links. They are quite informative. Still, she leaves the actual drafting up to you.

The sleeve cap one was interesting:

This has pictures of a gusset, front & back. Again, leaves working out the steps up to you.

I expect I'll go back to the drawing board on my sleeve cap design. & if anyone has anything to say about gussets, I'd love to hear it.
