Long diagonal sides -- look at Dak's packet. If you sew the gores in so the
hypotenuse of the right triangle is against the edge or the front/back
panel, then there will be a large triangular divot in the
hemline. If you sew it so the long edge of the right triangle is against
the edge of the panel, you get a trailing bit that can be taken off in the
hemming.

What's *really* fun is doing the math to build my ger.
Had my math teacher used real-life, hands-on lessons
like that, I might have gotten better grades.
