Description

Je l?) Il. L. R. wRlGH-r EDGE TRIM FOR CURTAINS OR THE LIKE Filed Nov, 22, 1940 I Patented June 17, 1941 2,246,197 EDGE TREVI FOR CURTAIN S R THE LIKE Lorance R. Wright, Memphis, Tenn., assignor yto The Fashion Curtain Company, Inc., Memphis, Tenn., a corporation of Tennessee Application November 22, 1940, Serial No. 366,525
1 Claim. (Cl. 15G- 10) This invention relates primarily to ruilled edgetrims for curtains or the like, though it may be applied to fabric structures for other purposes.
It further relates to the method of assembling and securing together the materials and parts which form such structures in a manner which permits extremely rapid large scale operation and produces a desirable and satisfactory product.
The objects of the invention are:
To arrange and secure along the edge of a. fabric structure, such as a curtain or drape, a trim having both edges ruffled and which trim is so secured to the fabric section that the trim satisfactorily hides the raw edge of the fabric and the fabric in turn hides the raw edge of the trim itself.
A further object of the invention is to provide a method of assembling a trim along a fabric edge which includes approaching the raw edges of a body fabric and a ruffle fabric to a stitching mechanism and so guiding and folding the two fabrics and tucking and stitching them together as to produce a structure with a double tucked finish for the body fabric edge.
The means by which the foregoing and other objects are accomplished will readily be understood from the following specification upon reference to the accompanying drawing, in which:
Fig. 1 is an elevation of a corner portion of a fabric structure, such as a curtain, showing the ruflied edge gathered and secured thereto.
Fig. 2 is a single line section taken as on the line II-II of Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is an enlarged view of the same section; and
Fig. 4 a view, relatively reversed with regard to Fig. .1, showing fragmentary portions of the body and rutile fabrics and the manner in which they are folded, approached and stitched together.
Referring now to the drawing in which the various parts are indicated by numerals:
II is the body fabric or body as of a curtain, and I3 a ruffle forming an ornamental edge for said body. The ruilie I3, as shown in Fig. 3, preferably has one edge folded backwardly and turned inwardly to form a finished hem I5 along its skirt I6 and a deep flap I'I along the opposite edge backwardly folded to form a heading I9, the flap I'l usually having a raw edge. The body II has a relatively narrow forwardly folded edge portion or nap 2|, also usually with a raw edge. The curtain body and the rutile are assembled with their backward and forward flaps 2 I- and I9 respectively abutting in overlapping relation, the
raw edge of the flap I'I being adjacent, but spaced slightly away from the fold line 23 of the body and its ap 2|, the rutile being secured to the body by lines of stitching 25, 21, spaced apart slightly less than the Width of the flap 2|, and lying respectively along the raw edge of the backwardly folded flap I'I of the rullle heading, and
-the raw edge of the forwardly folded flap 2I of the body I I.
The rutile I3, including the heading ap I9, is tucked or gathered at 29 along the stitching lines 25,721 and relative to the body II and its flap 2|, to accomplish the rullling, the stitching holding the ruiile to the body portion and eifectually concealing the raw edges of the flaps I9 and 2l, the resulting ruflied edge fabric structure being of unusually pleasing design and accomplished from two pieces only of material.
The method of accomplishing the ruffled edge fabric structure is in part indicated in Fig. 4. In this figure, which is about twice the scale of and is reversed relatively to Fig. 1, II-A is a fragmentary portion of the body which is being approached to means (not shown) adapted to accomplish rows of stitching 25-A, 2l-A; and I3-A is a much larger portion of the ruffled material which is being similarly and simultaneously advanced toward the same stitching apparatus, the rutile material being shown beneath the body fabric. As the two materials are being thus advanced, the raw edge II-B of the body fabric which forms the flap 2 I--A is folded under (as shown in this view) to bring the edge of the flap 2 I-A into alinement with the row of stitches 25-A and the raw edge portion I3-B of the ruffie material is folded upward along the line I3-C to bring the raw edge of the flap II-A into alinement with the stitching line 21-A, the flap 2I-.A of the body portion lying against the flap II-A of the ruille structure.. As the folding of the flap II-A over against the rullle structure to accomplish the heading I9-A is completed, suitable tucking mechanism (not here shown), gathers the rutile material along the stitching lines, forming both a ruilled heading and a ruffled skirt, and so gathered it is secured to the flat body portion I I-A and its flap portion 2I-A by the stitching and delivered from the stitching means.
It will be understood that the term raw edge is here used to differentiate from a hemmed edge and may be a selvage edge of the cloth.
I claim: s
An edged body fabric, comprising the fabric body and a rullle securedthereto by a double row of stitching, an edge-portion of said body, slightly wider than the spacing of said stitching, being folded inward and forward upon itself substantially to the line of the inner of said rows of stitching: said nime including a heading portion superposed along an edge portion of said body. and an integral skirt portion extending beyond said edge, the edge portion of said ruille forming said heading, lying inward of said stitching, being a substantial portion of tbe total width of said /rume, and being folded inward and backward upon itself with the raw edge of said fold extending substantially to the line of the outer of said rows of stitching, said ruiiie being gathered along the line of said stitchings, and said stitching lines substantially concealing the edges of the folded portions of said body and ruilie.
