SARAH A. FELT, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.

IMPROVEMENT IN SLEEVE-ADJUSTERS.

Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 222,262, dated December 2, 1879; application filed June 7, 1879.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, SARAH A. FELT, of Philadelphia, in the State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sleeve-Adjusters; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters ofreferenee marked thereon, making a part of this specification.

My invention relates to a device for adj usting the length of the sleeves of a shirt or similar garment at the will of the wearer; and it consists of a draw string, cord, or tape passing through holes, loops, or rings in or attached to the sleeve, or in combination with a shirred section with the sleeve, as will be hereinafter more fully set forth.

In order to enable others skilled in the art to which my invention appertains to make and use the same, I will now proceed to describe its construction and operation, referring to the annexed drawings, in which Figure l is a perspective view of a sleeve embodying my invention, showing the sleeve drawn up. Fig. 2 is aside view of the same, showing the sleeve extended and partly open to show the inside. Fig. 3 shows another form of my invention.

A represents a sleeve of a shirt or similar garment provided 011 the inside along the inner seam with a strip, B, in which is a series of eyelets, a a. Through these eyelets is passed a draw-string, G, which may be carried out to the outside of the sleeve, so as to be pulled from the outside; or it may remain on the inside.

The eyelets may be attached in the sleeve itself, if desired or loops 1) b may be arranged either inside or outside of the sleeve, with the draw-string passing through the loops.

In some cases a shirred section may be used in combination with the draw-string.

The object of the invention is to improve the appearance of the sleeve by adjusting its length to preserve the cleanliness of the wristband, cuffs, or lower ends thereof, and to promote the comfort of the wearer.

The draw-string O is provided with a small cross-bar or equivalent device, for the purpose of shortening the sleeve to any extent desired and fastening the string.

I am aware that a device for adjusting the length of the sleeves of shirts and other undergarments by means of a tab orstrap, combined with the cuff-band or placket and the body of the sleeve, is not new, and I do not claim such as my invention.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

A sleeve-adjuster consisting of a string,

cord, or tape having one end connected securely to the sleeve above the elbow, and one below the elbow, the center of said string passing through central eyelets, and provided with a cross-bar, anchor, or hook to engage in loops formed or secured upon the upper portion of the sleeve, as and for the purposes herein set forth.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand this 10th day of May, 1879.
