DRESS SHIRT Sidney A. Avery, Paterson, N. J. ApplicationNovem'ber 17, 1947, Serial "No. 7865420 4 Claims. (01. 21-118) This invention relates to an improved dress shirt of the type having a central opening and pleated. bosom portions on both sides thereof, and to the method of making such shirt.
The invention has among its objects the provision of an improved dress shirt of the type indicated wherein preformed pleated bosoms are aifixed to the respective bosom portions of a full shirt body, whereby the shirt is easily made to size, fits. the wearer accurately and. feels like the ordinary business. shirt when being worn. I
This and further objects of the invention Will be more. readily apparent in the following description of preferred embodiments of the. shirt and of the method of making it.,
Dress shirts with central openings. and pleated bosom parts have been conventionally made by use of a shirt body having cut-out. portions in the bosom parts, the cut-outs being only slightly smaller than the pleated bosom parts. The pleated bosom parts have then been applied to such body, and each has been attached thereto by sewing along the edge of the cut-out portion of the body, and the edge of its respective bosom part. Such operation is exacting. and time-consuming, and must be performed very carefully to produce a shirt having a desired accuracy or fit and a pleasing appearance. The shirt of the present. invention is. made by employing a full shirt body; the pleated bosom parts being super:- imposed on the. respective bosom parts of the body and permanently attached thereto by stitchings including one at the bottom edge of each of the pleated bosom parts and one alongthe edge of each remote from the central shirt opening. The shirt may thereupon be finished, if desired, in substantially the same manner as is employed to finish the ordinary business shirt having bosom parts of single thickness, which results in the pleated bosom parts being additionally stitched to the shirt body at the edge of the central opening and. at. the neckband. A dress shirt so made will thus fit. accurately, if the'full body thereof is made accurately, and the shirt is made by a method in which many of the operations are essentially similar to the usual ones in the shirt making industry; thus specially trained operators are not essential in making the shirt of the invention.
Preferred embodiments, of the shirts of the invention, which are illustrative only, are shown in the accompanying drawings forming a part. of the specification, in which;
Figure 1 is a view in front elevation of the bosom portion of a. completely centrally divided portions, res ectively, are the right hand ieated 2 dress shirt made. in accordance with a. first embodiment of the invention Figure 2 is a View front eleiflationbf the right hand bosom portion of such shirt during an intermediate stage of its manufacture Figure 3 is a view'in front "elevation of the right hand bosom portion of the shirt at'a latei' stage-in its manufacture;
Figure 4 is "a View front elevation of theleft hand bosom portion of the shirt in one stage'of-its manufacture Figure 5 is a view in cross-section through the shirt taken on the. line in Figure: 1.;
Figure 6 is a View in front elevation of the bosom portion of a second embodiment of the shirt of the invention; and
Figure '7 is a view in cro'ss section through such shirt, the section being taken along the. lines VII-47H in Figure 6'.
As above indicated, one embodiment of the shirt is shown in Figures 1 to 5 inclusive, and the second in Figures 6 and 'T. In the first embodiment, the right hand portion of the shirt body adiaoentthe central opening, hereafter termed the body bosom portion, is designated 2. The corresponding portion of the shirt body at the left. is denoted 4. superimposed on suchbody bosom bosom part 6, and the left hand leated bosom part 8, both of which are made as separate, preformed, elements which are superimposed on the body bosom portions, and are permanently attech-ed thereto by a method of which one embodirhent will now be described in connection the forming of the right hand bosom portion of the shirt.
The preformed pleated bosom part 6, in which the pleats are fastened together by longitudinal stitc'hm 's i0, is laced upon the body bosom part 2 with its normally outwardly facing surface confronting the body portion and with the edge H thereof, which eventually becomes its lower edge, u permost, as shown in Figure 2; suchposition, for the sake of convenience, I term an "upperfaoe-down and bottom-edge uppermost position. A transverse stitch is then taken at t2" t6 attach the edge H of the pleated bosom to the body. Thereupon the pleated bosom is folded up ardly so that it assumes the position shown in- F1 re 3, the line of fold l4 coinciding with the line of stitching I2. The pleated bosom part 6' is further attached to the body bosom part 2 by a 'lineof verti'ca1 stitching re along the edge or the positioned as to lie under the last pleat of the part 6.
In the embodiment of the shirt shown, the edge 22 of the pleated bosom portion adjacent the central opening of the shirt and the edge 20 of the 5 shirt body bosom part adjacent such opening are superimposed in coincident relationship. The portion of the shirt shown in Figure 3 is then finished by generally conventional shirt finishing operationswhich involve the folding of the edge of the shirt body upwardly. In this instance, however, because of the presence at such edge of the shirt of both the edge of the pleated bosom part and the edge of the body bosom part, there results the double fold 26 at the edge of the shirt adjacent the opening. A center piece 28 is then affixed to such edge of the shirt as by means of the two parallel stitchings 30 and 32. Preferably the center piece extends somewhat over the inner -edge of the first pleat 24, as shown in Figure 5,
which allows stitching 32 to penetrate the center piece, the first pleat, and the body 2 in that order,
thus producing a symmetrical, strong, construction. The other stitching 30 extends through the center piece, the inwardly folded edge of the body, the folded edge and the unfolded edge of the pleated bosom part, and the unfolded body bosom part 2 of the shirt, in that order, as shown in Fi ure 5.
The left hand pleated bosom part 8 is attached at its bottom edge 34 and at its edge 35 remote from the central opening of the shirt in the same -manner as the right hand pleated bosom part above described. In this case, however, the edge 38 of the pleated bosom part adiacent the cen- 35 tral opening of the shirt is spaced somewhat inwardly from the edge of the body bosom part 4, leaving a zone of material uncovered at 44.
' After attachment of the pleated bosom at its bottom and at its side edge 35, the edge of the bosom 40 portion of the shirt adjacent the central opening is finished by folding over portion 44 of the body 4, as shown in Figure 5, and by stitching such parts together by the longitudinally extending stitching 46. As is evident from Figure 1, but- 45 tons 48 are attached to the left hand edge of the shirt body and button holes 56 are provided through the center piece and the body on the right hand portion.
It is to be understood that a shirt constructed50 as described may be provided with either a conventional attached collar including a neckband or with a neckband for a detachable collar; the 'latter is indicated at 92 in Figure 1. Such collar;
left hand bosom parts of the shirt body are designated 2 and 4', respectively, corresponding pleated bosom parts being designated 52 and 54, respectively. The pleated bosom parts are applied to the body bosom parts at the bottom and side edges remote from the central opening of the shirt in the same manner as in the first embodiment described. The line of fold at the bottom of the right hand pleated bosom part coincident with the bottom stitching is designated 56, and the vertical stitching at the edge remote from the opening 58.
In this embodiment, as shown more clearly in Figure 7, the right hand edge of the shirt at the opening is formed by placing the pleated bosom portion 52 some distance from the edge of the body portion, such body portion being folded at 64 up and around the unfolded edge 62 of the pleated bosom part 52. Such folded portion is denoted 66. A center piece 68 is then affixed to such edge by longitudinal stitchings IB- and 12, In the embodiment shown in Figure 6, the center piece slightly overlaps the first pleat 60 of the part 52 at its inner edge. Button holes 14 are provided through the center piece 68, through the part 62 of the pleated bosom part, and through body 2.
The left hand edge of the shirt at the opening, in this embodiment, is finished in the manner clearly apparent at the left part of Figure 7. The pleated bosom part 54 is placed upon the body bosom part 4' so that the portion 18 of the former, which is of single thickness, has its edge 82 substantially coincident with the edge of the body bosom portion. The two thicknesses of material are first folded close to the edge to form a fold 83, and are then folded at a location remote from the edge to form a second fold 84, as shown. The folded portions of the layers are retained in the described folded positions by means of the longitudinal stitching 86. Such stitching may be located as shown, so that it extends through four layers of material, or it may, if desired, be located at a position somewhat to the right of that shown so that it pierces all six layers of the material. The left hand edge of the shirt body at the opening, thus finished, is then provided with buttons as shown.
Whereas I have described and illustrated preferred embodiments of the dress shirt of my invention, it is to be understood that such shirts may, within the scope of the invention, be varied somewhat as to details.
I claim as new the following:
1. A dress shirt having a full body with a central front opening to provide two bosom parts, each such bosom part of the body having a separate preformed pleated bosom part superimposed thereon and permanently attached thereto, each such pleated bosom part being attached to its respective body bosom part by stitching through an up and inturned edge of the lower edge of the pleated bosom part and the body bosom part, stitching at the side edge of the pleated bosom part remote from the front opening of the shirt, and an interfolding of the pleated bosom and body bosom parts and stitching through the pleated bosom and body bosom parts at said front opening.
