A'. J. C. HARPER GARMENT EDGE June 7, 1932.

Filed Oct. 26, 1929 frwerzzh Jff'fZZf'JC fifper' Patented June 7, 1932 ARTHUR J. C. HARPER, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS GARMENT EDGE Application filed October 26, 1929. Serial No. 402,579.

This invention relates to improvements in garment edges and, among other objects, aims to provide asimple and economical method of producing the same.

My invention may be understood by reference to an illustrative embodiment thereof shown in the accompanying drawing, in which Fig. 1 is a plan view of the various edge 19 parts assembled in superposed relationship, the layers being successively broken away for convenience of description.

Fig. 2 is a transverse section through the parts in an intermediate stage in the production of the edge.

Fig. 3 is an enlarged transverse section through the completed edge.

Fig. 4: is an enlarged plan View of a portion of tape with a pre-attached filament.

Referring to the drawing, I have shown a facing material 10, an outside material 11, a canvas 12 and an anchor member such as the tape 13, assembled 1) in the manner indicted.

In one conventional method of making a garment edge, the facing material, the outside material and the tape are stitched together, when in a position similar to that shown in Fig. 1, by a stitch which pierces the tape, the outside material and the facing material. In this construction, when the margins of the materials are folded within the edge,.as later explained, the tape will be folded also. The folding of the tape within 35 the edge is undesirable since it contributes objectionable bulk or stiffness to the edge.

In another conventional method, when the tape is attached to the edge independently of the stitch securing the facing and outside R0 materials together, two operations are necessary.

My invention permits of a single operation for stitching the facing material and the outside material together and to the tape, andat L6 the same time produces the effect of a tape which is attached independently of the stitch securing the facing and outside materials together.

To accomplish this result, I provide the 0 tape With attaching means which may be folded or otherwise distorted without being objectionable. and which is represented in this instance by a filament 14 pre-attached to and extending laterally from one side of the tape. With the parts in the position shown in Fig. 1, a stitch 14a is run by machine along the margins of the facing mate rial 10 and outside material 11 securing them together and engaging the filament 14:. The tape is thereby attached to the materials by w a thin, flexible connection, and, at the same time, since. the materials are simultaneously secured together and to the tape by a single machine stitching operation, great economy of manufacture is effected. The canvas 12, which is offset from the tape 13, as indicated,

is not caught by the stitch 14a but is secured to the tape for example by the felling stitch 15.

In an intermediate stage. in the production of the edge, the facing material is brought around as indicated in Fig. 2, preparatory to folding the margins 16 and 17 of the materials within the edge. Preferably, the margins 16 and 17, when in the position shown in Fig. 2, are separated and pressed down in opposite directions, to enhance the sharpness of the fold, preparatory to the final folding of the margins within the edge.

The margins 16 and 17 having been super- 30 posed one upon the other and upon the tape, as shown in Fig. 3, and the facing material 10 laid back over the edge concealing the margins, the tape and the canvas, the completed edge is produced. This completed 5 edge is then pressed and may be stitched down, if desired, as is well known to those skilled in the art, or may be .left as a plain edge.

Obviously, in folding the margins 16 and 9o 17 within the edge, the position of the margin with respect to the tape is reversed, but since I the tape 13 is attached to the margins only by the filament 14, the tape itself is permitted to remain unfolded and undistorted, and the edge is not thickened or stiffened by the folding of the tape. The relativelythin filament may be folded without being objectionable and it provides a flexible connection between the tape 18 and the stitch 14a. Also, the can- 1 0 vas 12, which is offset from the tape 13 even when the edge is completed as shown in Fig. 3, does not increase the thickness of the edge and, at the same time, ample space is provided for the filament 1% without increasing the thickness of the edge. Thus the edge is rendered desirably thin and soft and complete adjustability to the edge of the tape, and of the canvas which is attached to the tape, is obtained, preventing puckering or blistering of the edge.

The illustrative tape shown in Fig. 4 may be made upon present commercial machinery, the filament thereon being produced somewhat in the manner of an overedge stitch. As shown inthis instance, a thread 18 forms loops and a thread 19 is interwoven therewith to-secure and stabilize the loops.

Obviously, the invention is not limited to the particular embodiment shown and described herein.

I claim:

1. A garment edge comprising margins of oppositely disposed materials stitched together and to an interior anchor member provided with attaching means extending along one edge uniformly thinner throughout and more flexible than said anchor member, said 1 margins being folded between said materials so that the margins are superposed one upon the other and uponsaid anchor member, said anchor member being attached by said attaching means to the stitch securing the margins of together, whereby the anchor member lies un- W foldedwithin the edge.

2. A garment edge comprising margins of oppositely disposed materials stitched together and an interior tape, said margins being m folded between said materials so that the margins are superposed one upon the other andupon said tape, said tape having a series of-thread loops uniformly thinner throughout than said tape extending therefrom for attaching said tape to the stitch securing the margins together, whereby said tape lies unfoldedwithin said edge.

3. A thin and flexible garment edge comprising margins of oppositely disposed mar0 terials stitched together, said margins being folded between said materials so that the margins are superposed one upon the other and upon an interior tape, said tape being unfolded and having a series of thread loops uniformly thinner throughout than said tape extending therefrom for attaching said tape to the stitch securing the said margins together, and a canvas between said tape and one of the materials but offset from said tape, whereby said canvas does not contribute to thethickness of the edge.

In'testimony whereof, I have signed my name to this specification.
