gwuwwioz Abrafiam Z. Find.




To all 1072 0111 it may concern Be it known that I, ABRAHAM L. FINK, a citizen of the United States, residing at Buffalo, in the county of Erie and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Garments, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in the construction of coats, and particularly to an improved cut and construction of can- "as therefor, the object of the invention being to provide a mode of cutting and uniting the body and lapel sections of the form whereby stretching of the garment will be prevented and a better shape given to the breast portion thereof, and also by means i of which the lapel section may be shrunk in to any desired extent and to better advantage, without the necessity of using bridles or stays, and whereby a more perfect shape of lapel and better set thereof may be obtained.

A further object of the invention is to provide a construction of form which may be modified readily for use in making different shapes or styles of coats, and which is adapted to give a perfect fit across the shoulder.

In the accompanying drawing illustrating the invention, Figure 1 is an outer side view of the body and lapel sections of one side of the canvas form for the breast of a coat, showing the construction thereof and the manner in which they are united. Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the lapel section turned. Fig. 3 is a view of the inner side of the garment section.

Referring to the drawing, 1 and 2 designate the body and lapel sections of the can vas form of a coat, which are united along their proximate edges by a seam 3. The edge at of the body section 1 is outwardly curved and cut on the bias, while the edge 5 of the lapel section 2 connected therewith by the seam 3 is straight, whereby the united portions are prevented from stretching or getting out of shape. When the lapel is folded or turned as in Fig. 2, its line of fold extends parallel with the bias seam, allowing the canvas lapel section to be shrunk in to any desired extent to give a better shape to the lapel than is possible where the body section 1 has a straight edge. Furthermore, the construction described permits a Specification of Letters Patent.

better shaped breast portion to be made, and adapts it to maintain its shape without the necessity of using bridles or stays of any kind. It will be also seen that this construction enables the canvas form of each side or breast portion of the garment to be made of two pieces instead of three or more pieces, as is the customary practice.

The upper edge of the lapel section 2, in the construction of forms for general use, may be left raw or unshaped, in order that any desired form of lapel may be produced therefrom. This edge of the lapel section is provided with a V-shaped recess 6 in register with the line of fold to facilitate the operation of folding the same and beyond which the edge may be cut to impart the desired shape of the lapel.

The upper portion of the section 1 is provided with a lateral portion 7 beyond its bias edge 4; for connection with other por tions of the garment, and such upper portion of the section 1, which is provided with the sleeve recess 8 and is adapted to form the adjacent shoulder section of the garment, is provided with a corner 9 the section being partially covered in the finished lining by a padding piece 10. This recess 8 permits such portion of the section 1 to be drawn in or shaped to any desired extent to produce a perfect fitting concaved shoulder.

In addition to holding the sections of the garment from stretching, the bias seam 3 prevents bulging out of the coat at the lapel and sagging of the breast portion of the garment. Also as stated, it permits the canvas form to be shrunk in to any desired extent, so that the desired shape may be ob tained without the necessity of using stays, which destroy the set and fit of the garment. It is to be clearly understood that by this arrangement and mode of construction there is absolutely no more waste to the canvas on the cutting thereof than used in constructing the ordinary garment.

I claim A form for the side of the front of a coat comprising a body sect-ion having a curved edge out substantially on a bias, and a shoulder portion offset outwardly from the said curved edge and terminating in a curved edge, and a lapel section having a straight edge, the said curved edge of the body section threughout its extent being In testimony whereof I aflix my signau nited to the straight edge of the lapel secture in presence of wltnesses.
