Application filed January 24, 1912, Serial No. 673,176. Renewed May 24, 1913. Serial No. 769,763.
' resident of the city of Chicago, county of Cook, and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Inside Coat-Pockets, of which the following is a specication. Y
My invention relates to improvements in pockets and more specifically to improvements in an inside coat pocket in which is provided a supplement-al pocket or compzlirtment for the reception of a pencil or the li (e.
The object of my invention is the production of a pocket of the character mentioned which will be of improved construction, one which may be provided in a coat with ease and expedition and hence at a low cost, and one which will be of neat and finished appearance and efficient in use.
@ther objects will appear hereinafter.
With these objects in view, my invention consists in the combinations and arrangements of parts hereinafter described and claimed.
My invention will be best understood by reference to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, and in .which- Figure l is a fragmentary view of a coat lining showing the first step employed in the application of a pocket thereto embodying my invention, Fig. 2 is a cross section of the construction shown in Fig. l, except that the layer or portion which is attached to the lining and which is shown in upright position in Fig. 1, is shown folded down in Fig. 2, this being the next step in the construction of the pocket, Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 1, illust-rating the next kstep in the construction of the pocket, Fig. 4 is a section similar to Fig. 2, illustrating the step succeeding that illustrated in Fig. 3,
fFig. 5 is a view similar to Figs. 1 and 3,
illustrating the step following that shown in Fig. 4, Fig. 6 is a cross section thereof,
FiO. 7 is a fraomentar front view of thev C c Y coat lining showing the completed pocket varranged therein, and Figs. 8 and 9 are secin 'this lining and which constitutes the sub.- ject matterv of this invention, comprises inner and outer layers 2 and 3 which are sewed'together, as shown, at their peripheries except the outer edges thereof which are sewed to the lining 1 'at 4 and 5 respectively, the mouth or upper edge of the pocket registering withv a slit 6 which is provided in said lining. The supplemental pocket is formed by anarrow layer 7 which of thelayer 2, the upper edge of the layer 7 being stitched or sewed, as at 8, to the lining l, the stitching 8 being positioned below the stitchings 4. In order to gain access to the supplemental pocketthestitchings 4 closing the mouth of the said supple- Figs. 7 and 8.
In the construction of the pocket the layer 2 is first secured to the lining l by stitchings 4, as clearly shown in Fig. 1. The layer 2 is' then bent upon itself, as shown `in Fig. 2, and the supplemental layer 7 secured by stitchings 8 with the edge thereof to be attached, disposed in close proximity with and parallel to the attached edge of layer 2, as shown in Fig. 3. Layer 7 is then folded upon itself, as shown in Fig. 4, whereupon the layer 3 is secured to the lining 1 by stitchings 5 with its edge to be attached arranged in close proximity to and parallel with the attached edges of layers 2 and 7. The slit 8 is then formed in the lining l disposed intermediate the adjacent edges of layers 8 and 7 and 2, as shown in Figs. 5 and 6. Next, the layers 2, 3 and 7 are forced through the slit 6 to the dotted'line position shown in Fig. 6, whereupon the edge 9 of layer 7 is sewed to the layer 2. rIhe layers 2 and 3 are then arranged with their peripheries registering, whereupon the same are sewed together, as shown, it being seen that in this stitching of the layers 2 and 3 together, the remaining lower and longitudinal edges of theslayer 7 will be also secured to the layer 2 by the same stitching as connects said layer 2 with the layer 3, as' shown in Fig. 7. The stitching 4-at the mouth of the supplemental pocket is then removed as by cutting through the employment of a knife, this operation completing Ythe formation of the pocket.V

is secured at kits periphery to the front sidev mental pocket are removed, as shown in gether with a supplemental pocket, the supplemental pocket being entirely independent of the main pocket. lt is the practice at the present time, in the formation of a supplemental pocket in an inside coat pocket, to run a line of stitching xfertically through the Walls of the pocket adjacent one edge, thus forming a supplemental or pencil pocket at one edge of the nain pocket. 'Vith this practice, however, it Will b-e seen that the main pocket is decreased in dimensions or in Width an extent equal to the Width or dimensions of the supplemental pocket formed, this being objectionable in that the resulting inain pocket isdecreased in size to such an extent as to be inadequate to serve the purposes for which it is designed. ln the. present case this objection is overcome, by providing a supplemental pocket within the main pocket Without altered size thereof. The resulting construction is neat and nished in appearance, the presence of a supplemental pocket being unnoticeable from Without; and by extending the upper edge of .the layer 2 of the main pocket above the lower edge of the slit, as shown, the gaining of access to the supplemental pocket is evidently facilitated.
.Vhile .l have illustrated and described the preferred forni of construction for carrying my invention into effect, this is capable of variation and modification Without departing from the spirit of the invention. I, therefore, do not Wish to be limited to the exact details of construction set forth, but desire to avail myself of such variations and modifications as come Within the scope of the appended claim.
Having described my invention, What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:
The combination with a sheet of material having a slit formed therein; of layers of material att-ached to the sides of said slit, one of said layers being so attached that the upperl terninal thereof projects above the lower side of the slit aforesaid; stitching connecting the peripheries of said layers; and a narrowed supplemental strip attached to the outer surface of one of said aforementioned strips constituting a supplemental pocket, the opening of which is disposed below the lower side of the slit aforesaid.
in testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing Witnesses.
