2 Sheets-Sheet 2 v JNVENToR. CHARLES D. WILLIi-MSQN www T TORNYS C. D. WILLIAMSON SHIRT FIG. 3.

April 12, 1955 Filed Hay 5, 1954 United States Patent O 1 2,705,806 SHIRT Charles Donovan Williamson, Fort Worth, Tex. Application May 5, 1954, Serial No. 427,845 1 Claim. (Cl. 2-115) This invention relates to shirts and, in particular to an improved form of sport shirt which comprises a novel combination of knitted body material and woven trim material.

Sport shirts of the type herein disclosed are usually made from lightweight knitted material. The reason for using knitted material of this type is that conventionally these sport shirts are worn during the summer months or by persons participating in active sports. The relatively loosely knitted material is both cool and well adapted to be stretched as the wearer participates in active games. While it is highly desirable that the body of the shirt be adapted to stretch to accommodate active movements of the wearer, the free edges of the conventional shirt, being of the same knitted material, likewise tend to stretch and soon become more or less permanently stretched out of shape.

One object of this invention is to provide a sport shirt in which the advantages of a knitted body are present and at the same time eliminating undesirable stretching of the free edges of the garment.

Another object of the invention is to provide a sport shirt of a dressier appearance than the conventional shirt of this type.

These objects are simultaneously achieved by anchoring free edges of the knitted material of the shirt to woven material, which is much less prone to stretch than the knitted material of the body and sleeves of the shirt. Specifically, the edges defining the front opening of the shirt are provided with a facing of woven material, the neck opening is secured to a collar of woven material and the sleeve ends are bound with strips of woven material. The remaining free edge, the bottom hem, is provided with a strip of crinoline. The woven front facings, collar, and sleeve bindings may be of a color which contrasts with that of the knitted body, thus not only preventing the free edges from stretching out of shape, but at the same time greatly enhancing the appearance of the shirt.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent by reference to the following specification and the drawings.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a front view of one form of the invention;

Figure 2 is a rear view of the shirt of Figure 1; and

Figure 3 is a View showing the component parts of the shirt shown in Figures l and 2.

The component parts of the shirt as shown in Figure 3 are cut as follows. Body 10, sleeves 12L and 12R and yoke 16 are cut from a piece of knitted material. The sleeve bindings 14L and 14R, the collar 18 and collar lining 20, the front facings 22L, 24L and 22R, 24R, and the pocket 26 are all cut from Woven material. The bottom strip 28 is of crinoline.

After the component parts are cut, the shirt is assembled as follows. Collar 18 and the collar lining 20 are joined face to face with single needle stitching in the conventional collar make-up manner; the collar is then turned ready for attaching. The front facings are each cut in two pieces 22L, 24L and 22R, 24R, and joined face to face with a single needle stitch along the edge sides E of the facing and the bottom of the facing. Then the front facings are attached to the collar face to face with a single needle stitching and the facings are then turned right side out, thus concealing the attaching stitches.

Sleeves 12L and 12R are bound on the outside edges with the sleeve bindings 14L and 14R. These bindings are attached with a single needle stitch through a fold which clean nishes both edges of the binding. The sleeves are closed along the underarm edges U with a serged stitch, the sleeves being wrong-side out for this operation and turned right-side out, ready for attaching.

Crinoline strip 28 is serged to the bottom of the shirt body with the Crinoline laying to the wrong side of the ice body material. This Crinoline is then turned up and the hemhH is completed by sewing down with a single needle stitc Yoke 16 is attached to the right side of the body 10 through a fold which clean finishes the bottom of the yoke. The yoke is attached to the body with single needle stitching.

Completed front facings 22L, 24L and 22R, 24R are attached to the edges of the body by means of a serge stitch with the right side of the facing laying to the right side of the body material thus concealing the stitches of the seam B. This serge stitch extends from the bottom of the garment to the shoulder seam along each facing.

The shoulder seam is made with a serge stitch extending along each shoulder S from collar portion C to the armhole A. This seam is applied from the wrong side of the material so that the stitching is concealed from view from the outside of the garment.

The completed sleeves 12L, 12R are attached to the body 10 at the armhole A by means of a serging stitch. This seam is sewn from the inside of the garment in order to conceal the stitching from outside View.

The unattached portion of the collar is attached in two operations by means of single needle stitching. The i'lrst operation consists of attaching the back of the collar to the body 10 and front facings 22L, 24L and 22R, 24R. The collar edge is turned under for a clean nish and attached to the yoke 16, front facings 22L, 24L and 22R, 24R and body 10 simultaneously. The second operation consists of attaching the collar front. The edge of the collar is turned up for a clean finish and the collar front is attached to the body and front facings.

The pocket 26 is hemmed at the top and crimped along the attaching edges with an automatic creasing machine. T hehpocket is attached to the body With a single needle stitc Any desirable fastening means may be provided, such as the conventional button arrangement illustrated or a zipper.

The assembled shirt, as illustrated in Figures 1 and 2, provides the coolness and freedom of action which characterize the conventional knitted type sport shirt but at the same time eliminates the undesirable stretching of the free edges of the conventional, all knitted sport shirt. The woven collar, front facings and sleeve bindings enhance the appearance of the shirt and at the same time perform the highly desirable function of preventing the free edges of the shirt from being stretched out of shape.

The specic embodiment of the invention disclosed is to be considered as exemplary rather than limiting and the actual scope of the invention is intended to be limited only by the scope of the following claim.
