12. The apparatus claimed in claim 11 including an elastic loop securing station where heated members are brought into engagement with the elastic loop to react the glue thereon.
13. The apparatus claimed in claim 1 including a transfer station having movable arms carrying movable gripping fingers adapted to engage a semi-finished blank and transfer it from a forming board to an aligned body form on the second conveyor.
14. The machine claimed in claim 1 wherein said body forms are each a replica of a body trunk from the waist tO the thigh having a waist opening and a pair of leg openings and is mounted rotatably on a bar rotatably supported on the second conveyor transverse to the direction of movement thereof.
15. The machine claimed in claim 14 including a waist finishing station having a waist finishing mechanism comprising a fixed frame, a frame movable relative to the fixed frame, a drive shaft rotatably mounted on the movable frame and co-axial with the axis of rotation of the body form, a replica of the periphery of the shape of the waist opening fixed to the drive shaft and drive members on the drive shaft engageable with driven members fixed to the body form by movement of the movable frame, a constant speed power shaft rotatably mounted on the movable frame drivingly coupled to a power transfer shaft and the periphery of said replica, first and second cam means driven by the transfer shaft, and third cam means driven by the power shaft, a sewing machine carrying arm assembly pivotally supported from the moving frame, said first cam means controlling the movement of the moving frame, and said second and third cam means controlling the movement of said arm assembly, the arrangement being such that rotation of the power shaft causes movement of the moving frame with consequent driving engagement of the drive shaft with the body form and movement of the arm assembly to bring a sewing machine fitted to the arm assembly into operative relationship with the waist edge of a garment and rotation of the drive shaft and thus the body form with a uniform surface speed for the periphery of the garment waist opening.
16.
