GARMENT.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Feb. 13, 1912.
Application filed October 5, 1909. Serial No. 521,155i.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, MARIE W. FUoHs, a citizen of the United States, residing at Buffalo, in the county of Erie and State of New York, have invented a certain new and useful Improved Garment, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to an article of wearing apparel in which a flaring effect is produced.
One of the improved features consists in attaching a band of fairly stifl material at its upper edge only to the inner surface of the garment and in such manner that it will hang within the lower portion thereof and produce a flaring or outwardly curving appearance.
Another feature has reference to the construction of the stiffening band from one piece of material and in a substantially oval shape so that the garment when stiffened will hang naturally and gracefully and will have an even and uniform flare completely around the circumference of the lower portion.
The main objects of the invention are to produce a natural flare in the garment having a neat and elegant appearance, to avoid causing uneven or pronounced waves in the flared portion, and to maintain the flared portion of the garment in an easy and graceful position on the wearer.
The stiflening band is arranged with the end portion of the oval in the front of the skirt for a two-fold purpose, viz: First, to provide suficient stepping room for the wearer; and second, to provide for causing the front portion of the skirt to hang more nearly vertical than the rear portion thereof, because of the greater amount of material in the larger, or wider, portion of the oval than in the smaller or narrower portion.
The invention also relates to certain details of construction which will be hereinafter described and claimed reference being had to the accompanying drawings illustrating a preferred adaptation in which Figure 1 is a fragmentary side elevation partially in section of a skirt provided with the improved flare. Fig. 2 is an enlarged detached plan view of the oval stiffening band. Fig. 3 is a section on line a a, Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a section on line b b, Fi 1, through the skirt, the flounce and the sti ening band showing the manner of securing them together by a single row of stitching.
In referring to the drawings in detail, like numerals designate like parts.
In the adaptation of the invention illus trated in the accompanying drawings, 1 represents the body portion of a ladies skirt or pett-icoat having a lower flounce 2. A band 3 of stiffening material such as mohair, or hair cloth is secured to the lower end of the skirt body 1 and hangs so as to maintain the flounce in a flared out condition as shown in Fig. 1. This band is preferably of an oval shape as shown in Fig. 2 and 1s formed of one integral section of material so that it will be equally stiff throughout. A covering 4 of suitable thin material is fitted on one of the faces of the band with its side edges lapped over the edges of the band as shown in Fig. 2.
In Fig. 3 one way of securing the covering 4 to the band is shown. In this figure the inner margin of the band is folded upon itself as shown at 5 to stiffen the flounce and the inner margin of the covering is folded upon the folded marginal portion. The outer margin of the covering is folded over the edge of the band and then folded in a double fold upon itself to provide two folds of the covering on the outer margin of the band as shown at 6, in said Fig. 3. Both the flounce 2 and the band 3 are secured to the lower extremity of the body portion 1 by a single row of stitching 7 as shown in Fig. 4. The flounce is secured to the outer surface and the band to the inner surface of the body portion 1, see Figs. 1 and 4 and both hang downward and outward producing a flaring appearance. The flounce and band are not secured together at any point and are free to move independently of each other below the points of mutual attachment to the body portion, so that the garment when on the wearer will have a natural and graceful appearance.
The advantage of the oval shaped band is that the flounce of the skirt is supported in the most convenient shape for walking. Other advantages reside in the inte ral construction of the band which pro uces an even stiffness throughout and in the securing of both the flounce and band to the skirt body by a single row of stitching, which naturally reduces the cost and labor besides securing the flounce and band to the body at the same horizontal plane so that they will fall and hang together naturally.
I claim--- A garment comprising a body portion, a lower flounce secured to the body portion, and a substantially oval stiflening band secured at the junction of the body portionand the flounce and with its wider portion 10 in the front part of the garment and having its lower outer portion free andin sliding contact with the interior surface of the fiounce below the bottom edge of'the body portion, for causing it to flare substantially as shown and-specified.
