Sept. 11,- 1956 c. D'ANGELQ MEANS FOR GRAPHICALLY FITTING GARMENTS Filed Feb. 5. 1952 INVEHTORZ CONRAD D'ANGELQ United States Patent MEANS FOR GRAPHICALLY FITTING GARMENT S Conrad DAngelo, Saint-leu-la-Foret, France Application February 5, 1952, Serial No. 270,044
Claims priority, application France February 9, 1951 3 Claims. (Cl. 33-16) The present invention relates to garment fitting means. The known method of garment fitting consists, while sizing a garment, of causing a customer to put on a standard garment of appropriate dimensions provided with elastic deformable seams and with marks cooperating with these seams, and numerically noting down the extent of deformation of the seams, so that the numerical values of the deformations thus noted may be obtained, whereafter these values can be transferred to appropriate patterns.
This known system has, however, the defect that it is necessary for the cutter, to translate the numerical values onto paper patterns in order to modify the corresponding pattern types.
With the above object in view, the present invention mainly consists in a method of fitting garments comprising the steps of applying to the wearer a garment gauge formed of garment portions having facing searn edges secured to each other along portions of their length only so as to leave free facing edge portions located spaced from each other when the garment gauge is applied to the wearer, the garment gauge having a marking sheet removably attached at one side to one of said facing edge portions extending between the facing seam edges, marking the marking sheet along the facing seam edge at the other side of the marking sheet, removing the sheet from the gauge, attaching the marking sheet on a pattern having the same shape as the garment portion to which the marking sheet was attached, the marking sheet being arranged on the pattern in the same position relative to the outline of the pattern as the marking sheet was arranged on the garment portion relative to the outline thereof, the marking desired garment cloth in accordance with the pattern and the mark of the marking sheet attached thereto.
The mere transmission of this marking sheet, detached from the garment gauge in the cutting shop, permits of fixing it onto a corresponding pattern with the aid of means carried by this band and marked exactly like on the garment gauge, of tracing the exactly corrected contour of the piece to be cut from the selected cloth.
No numeral or figure is to be involved, transmitted or translated. This is a very great advantage.
Of course, there is, for each garment, a set of detachable marking sheets with their marked fastening means corresponding to fastening means identical with those of the garment gauge and fixed onto the pattern in the shop.
These fastening means may be button-and-holes or press-buttons or even mere pinning, the contour of the fastening edge being then plotted and marked upon the marking sheet extending from the cloth in the deformable seam.
Of course, the garment gauge, of which there will be a. series corresponding to a series of normal cuts, will be such that the deformable splits will be preferably always opened, closing only on the detachable removably marking sheet fixed in each deformable seam in order that the tracing of the junction line may be possible by following only the free edge of the seam.
2,762,124 Patented Sept. 11, 1956 It will even be possible, without departing from the spirit of the invention, should the arrangement be applied only to a certain case, to employ only half-garment gauges, the back seam having its tracing effected, when this half-garment is set in position, along the customers backbone to trace this corrected seam.
The detachable marking sheets are preferably made from thin fabrics strong enough to revent them from being deformed by warping.
Apart from fabrics, any other suitable material such as paper, foiIed plastics, or the like, may be employed without departing from the scope of the invention.
Should the free edge overlap the edge where the marking sheet is fastened, it will sufiice to fold the free portion of the latter over the fastening contour, while marking the fold thus constituted, and to effect the tracing upon the folded portion which may thus be carried over onto the pattern in the shop. This method should generally be avoided since the garment gauge is formed normally with gaping seams.
The invention will be more clearly understood by referring to the accompanying drawings in which:
Fig. 1 shows a customer wearing a garment gage provided, according to the invention, with detachable marking sheets following the tracing of the junction seams corrected on the spot;
Fig. 2 shows a standard pattern similar to a portion of the garment gauge and upon which are attached the marking sheets already marked with the contour of the gaping seam as seen in Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 shows a book of marking sheets comprising a plurality of marking sheets removable following a contourcorresponding to that of the standard pattern, the top band receiving the correcting trace, and after removal, uncovering the next band ready for use; and
Fig 4 shows a band detached from the book of Fig. 3, after receiving the correcting trace.
Similar numerals refer to similar parts throughout the several views.
In the drawings, 1 is a detachable marking sheet receiving the correcting contour 2 that reproduces the trace of the corresponding free standard edge 3, after the marking band has been set in position. 4 is the edge, carrying, if necessary, the standard tracing of the pattern 5 which, in the tracing shop, receives the marking sheet 1. 6 are first attachment means for fixing the marking sheet 1 onto the end of the portion of the garment gauge opposite to the neighboring-portion of the standard edge 4 to be corrected, to the attachment means 6 on the marking sheet. The latter may then be fixed onto the corresponding second attachment means 6 carried by the standard pattern 5 in proximity to its standard cut 7 identical with the edge 4. The dash-and-dot line 2 is the tracing made on the marking sheet alongside the corresponding free edge 3 on the standard gauge. 8 is a book comprising a number of marking sheets. The sheets in this book each have a dotted line 9 along which each marking sheet 1 is detached after the trace 2 is eifected. This dotted line 9 has at least one identification mark 11 corresponding to a mark 12 made on the edge 4 of standard trace to be corrected; this permits the dotted line 9 to coincide precisely with the edge 7 of the pattern 5 carrying the corresponding mark 12, and thus ensures the precise positioning of the corrected tracing 2 with respect to the pattern 5.
The procedure is as follows: The garment gauge is? being set in position on the customer with the aid of a set of seams 3-4, opened and displaceable for example by means of an elastic lacing 20, there are raced, for example in pencil, upon the marking sheets 1, previously fixed with the aid of attachment means 6 and 6' (or by any other suitable means), the contours 2 of the corrected interconnecting lines. If the marking sheets 1 are 3 fixed otherwise than with the aid of means 6-6', for example by means of press-buttons, the contours of 4 and the marks 11 are traced at the same time.
The marking sheets 1 arethen detached from the garwhich the various parts of the cloth may be precisely seamed together. The tracing of interconnections and the cutting of cloth parts is thus effected with a cloth loss reduced to a minimum, and the cutter does not require to read or translate any numerical measurements.
What is claimed is: l. A garment fitting arrangement comprising, in combination, a garment gauge including a pair of gaugeportions having edges directed toward and located adjacent 1 to each other and only partially secured to each other, said gauge having the unsecured portions .of said edges spaced from each other when said garment gauge is applied to a wearer to leave a gap between said unsecured portions of said edges; a marking sheet of a size larger than said gap; first connecting means for temporarily and removably connecting said marking sheet to one of said gauge portions in a position extending beyond the unsecured edge portion of said one gauge portion across the entire gap into overlapping relationship with the other unsecured edge portion, so that a line may be made on said marking sheet extending along said latter edge portion; a pattern having the same configuration as said one gauge portion; and second connecting means for temporarily and removably connecting said marking sheet to said pattern in the same position with respect to the latter as with said one gauge portion so that the configuration of said pattern is modified by said line on said marking sheet.
2. A garment fitting arrangement comprising, in combination, a garment gauge including a pair of gauge portions'having edges directed toward and located adjacent to each other and only partially secured to each other, said gauge having the unsecured portions of said edges spaced from each other when said garment gauge is applied to a wearer to leave a gap between said unselarger than said gap; first button means for temporarily and removably connecting said marking sheet to one of said gauge portions in a position extending beyond the unsecured edge portion of said one gauge portion across the entire gap into overlapping relationship with the other unsecured edge portion, so that a line may be made on said marking sheet extending along said latter edge portion; a pattern having the same configuration as said one-gauge portion; and second button means for temporarily and removably connecting said marking sheet to said pattern in the same position with respect to the latter as with said one gauge portion so that the configuration of said pattern is modified by said line on said marking sheet.
3. A garment fitting arrangement comprising, in combination, a garment gauge including a pair of gauge portions having edges directed toward and located adjacent to each other and only partially secured to each other,
said gauge portions in a position extending from beneath said one gauge orti-on beyond the unsecured edge portion thereof across the entire ga into a position 10- cated beneath and overlapping the other unsecured edge portion, so that a line may be made on said marking sheet extending along said latter edge portion; a pattern having the same configuration as said one gauge portion; and second connecting means for temporarily and removably connecting said marking sheet to said pattern in the same position with respect to the latter as with said one gauge portion so that the configuration of said pattern is modified by said line on said marking sheet.
