PAPER GARNI ENT.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 397,437', dated February 5, 1889.
Application filed .Tuly 2, 1888.. Serial No. 278.877. (No model.)
To all 1071.071?j it may @0N/ecrit:
Be it known that we, RICHARD (l. MUDGE and-EDGAR M. V\VA.SSON, citizens of the United States, both residing in the city of Detroit, county of lvayne, State of Michigan, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Garments of Paper, of which. the following is so full, clear, and exact a description as will enable others skilled in the art to which our invention appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to t`1e accompanying drawing, in which the 'figure' of the drawing represents a front view of a garment made of the fabric herein described, showing hemmed edges and means of fasten.` ing said garment.
rlhe object of our invention is to provide garments of alight and cheap fabric which shall conduct heat so slowly as to protect the wearer from being affected by sudden changes of temperature, To this end we employ ordinary paper or wood iiber which has been passed through a crushing-machine, and thus rendered pliable and less liable to preserve creases. This paper is then passed through a sizing-machine for the purpose of attaching thereto one or more layers of silk, cotton, or woolen cloth.
The letter l, represent-s the hem for the up in a hem at d, and inclosing between the two folds the tape b, secured in position by l are adapt ed to act as gathering ends. By drawing more or less tightly upon the fastenings C the garment may be drawn more or less closely around the body, and the strain thus exerted on the fastenings be distributed over a greater extent of fabric, thus lessening the liability to tearing.
These garments supply a need long felt for adequate protection against the sudden changes of winter temperature frequently eze perienced in our Northern and Vestern States. rl`his protection has hitherto only been afforded by furs and other expensive materials.
Our fabric is so cheap as to bc easily available to' farmers, miners, lumbermen, and others who are constantly at work in the open V air.
The perforations c maybe made sufficiently large to receive a'tape binding around their edges, or they may be stitched like a buttonhole, or even provided with eyelets.
Having now described the objects, uses, and advantages of our invention, and having set. forth a preferred method of constructing the same, whatwe believe to be new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United Stat-cs, and what wc therefore claim is- As a new article of manufacture, a garment consisting of layers of cloth and flexible sized paper, having its outer edges inelosing a binding-tape, and stitched as described, and provided with approximately-h'orizontal rowsof perfor-ations, and tapes secured. to the garment at or near the perforations of each row farthest .from the front opening of. the garment, and passing alternately through the said series of perforations, whereby the said tapes are adapted. to act as gathering ends, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof we aiiix our signatures in the presence of two witnesses.
