LACE

INVENTOR om f J. LOOPO Filed Jan. 5, i925 WITNESSES A'ITDRNEYS Patented June 12, 1928.

UNITED STATES JACOB LOOPO, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

LAGE.

Application led January 5, 1925.

This invention relates to improvements in lace and I would have it distinctly understood that in employing this term lace I use it in the broadest possible .sense to include embroidery and other analogous open- 'worlr material.

Furthermore, my invention particularly relates to lace, embroidery, etc., which is machine made upon standard types of machine and has to do with the formation of the lace which receives a draw string.

An object of the invention is, therefore, to provide lace with an improved arrangement of dra-w string receiving loops, certain ol the loops being omitted, preferably at regular intervals, whereby spaces are provided between groups of loops, and when the draw string is operated the lace can be gathered or shirred without leaving a rumpled or uneven surface or edge for attachment with other material, or tor properly positioning the lace around the neclr or arm.

In other words, my invention has to do with lace which is so constructed that the latter may be given the desired arc or eurvature by means of the draw string.

With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in certain novel features ot construction, and combinations and arrangements oit parts, which will be more fully hereinafter described and pointed out in the claim.

In the accompanying drawings-- Figure l illustrates, on a somewhat eX- aggerated scale, a piece of lace or embroidery having my improvements thereon;

Figure 2 is a plan view, more or less diagrammatic, showing how the lace or embroidery may be gathered or shirred to give it the desired curvature;

Figure 3 is a fragmentary exaggerated view illustrating a. modilication.

As above stated, my improved lace or embroidery is made upon a .standard type of machine, and it is to be distinctly understood that the invention has nothing to do with the particular design of the lace or embroidery as this may be varied without limit.

Referring particularly to Figures l and 2, l represents a piece of lace and Q. what is Serial No. 716.

known in the art as a steel, which constitutes a covered thread and normally forms the linishing edge ot the lace.

On this steel l provide u series ot loops 8 which are suitably interlocked or tied in the steel and which receive a draw string 4.

It will be noted that the loops 3 are arranged in groups with loops omitted between the groups, leaving spaces, and it is preferable that this arrangement ot groups of loops and the length of spaces he uniform so that when the string 1t is drawn the series ot loops will be moved toward each other and the lace or embroidery will be ot the desired curvature or what is known in the art as gathering or shirring, and at the same time leave a smooth, unrumpled edge, as indicated in Figure 2.

In Figure 3 I illustrate a modiiication in which the same generaln idea is carried out to permit gathering or shirring intermediate the edges of the lace. Vith this idea in view two sections o'f lace 5 and 6 are each provided with a longitudinal series of spaced loops so that the draw string 8 projected through the loops can gather or shirr the material.

It is this broad idea of providing draw string loops, with certain et the loops omitted to permit a smooth gathering or shirring, which constitutes the broad idea of my invention, and I do not wish to he limited to any particular manner oil `torming the loops nor ot' making the lace, alr though it is to be understood that in iorming the lace I may employ a standard type et machine which will carry outl the operan tion ot producing the lace as above delined.

Vhile I have illustrated the draw string as a cord, it is obvious that a tape or string of any desired thickness and transverse dimension may be employed, it being understood, of course, that the loops will be made of the proper .size to receive the particular draw string or tape desired.

Various slight changes and alterations might be made in the general form oi the parts described without departing from my invention, and hence I do not limit myself to the precise details setforth but consider each set composed of a plurality of closely associated loops the loops running transversely of the plane of the lace, the .sets of loops spaced apart, and a draw .string ex tendingT through the sets ol" loops and across the gaps between the sets of loops.

JACOB LOOPO.
