The Sartorius muscle is found on your legs and crosses from the back, near the hamstring, all the wayto the base of the quadriceps, at the front of the leg. The name Sartorius was derived from the Latinfor tailor. You may ask what a leg muscle has to do with a person who stitches clothes? Well, whenevera tailor was at work, he/she would cross his or her legs. In order to do so, a tailor must employ aspecial leg muscle, the Sartorius. Today, sartorial does not relate directly to the muscle or tailor, but rather to the way we dress (makes sense considering tailors work with clothes).
