The sartorius muscle is a muscle in the thigh which aids one to rotate the leg into a sitting arrangement. It is the longest muscle in the human anatomy. It is a long lean muscle that stretches down along the length of the thigh. The upper part of this muscle makes up the lateral border for the femoral triangle.

The word 'sartorius' is the Latinn version of the English word 'sartorial' that means something that is of or related to tailoring, which is derived from sartor which means tailor, in turn it is derived from the word sartus from sarcio which refers to patching or repairing. This name was selected to refer to the cross legged position in which tailors were accustomed or habituated to sitting while sewing or tailoring.
