BEATRICE YAEGER, 0F MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA.
Application led April 9, 1917. Serial No. 160,677.
To all whom t may concern: l
Be itknown that l, BnaTRron J. YAEGER, a citizen of the United States, `residing'at Minneapolis, in the county of Hennepin and State of Minnesota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sleeve- Protectors; and l do hereby declare the following to be a. full, clear, and eXact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention has for its object to provide a simple and extremely efiicient sleeve protector especially adapted to be worn by book-keepers, stenographers, clerks, and other persons that work at ay desk. lt is, however, adapted for more general use and would be found very serviceable for use by women in their household or kitchen work while wearing a garment with long sleeves.
As a feature of the invention, it is made of a very light waterproofed silk cloth known to the trade as rubberized oiled silk. The protector, however, involves features of novelty aside from the material of which it is made, and is preferably constructed as illustrated in the accompanying drawings wherein like characters indicate like parts throughout the several views.
Referring to the drawings:
Figure 1 is a perspective view showing a protector applied to a persons arm and covering a portion of the sleeve;
Fig. 2 is a plan view of the protector showing the cuif thereof closed;
Fig. 3 is a plan view of the sleeve showing the cud thereof opened in part; and
Fig. 4 is an end elevation of the sleeve, some parts being broken away.
The body or sleeve portion 5 of the protector is tapered, so as to substantially it the arm and, at its small end, it is formed with an outer cuff 6 and an inner culiE 7, which cuffs are longitudinally split or divided, respectively at 8 and 9. The outer cuff 6 is preferably formed integral with the sleeve 5 and is made double by turning the same inward and backward and stitching the same to the body at 10. The inner cuff 7 is attached to the sleeve 5 by the stitches 10, and at its extended edge, is provided with a hem 11 that contains an endless elastic cord or band 12. This cord 12 normally contracts or gathers the hem 11 but makes it eXpansible so that it will tightly fit the wrist or arm. The split edge 8 of the Specication of Letters Patent. Patented NOV. 12, 1918.
outer cuff 6 is preferably bound or faced and is provided with separable fasteners 1,3 and lt of the glove-fastener type. The inner cuff 7, at the outer extremity of its split edge 9 is also provided with a` separable-fastener 15, preferably of the glove-fastener type. By a fastener of the `glove-fastener type, it will, of course, be understood is inea-nt a fastener comprising a socket and a head adapted to be sprung into the socket, such as almost universally used on gloves.
Preferably, the sleeve 5 is made long` enough to reach nearly to the elbow, and at its end, it is obliquely cut so that it may reach nearly or quite to the elbow on the underside and still clear the depression of the elbow joint at its upper side, and hence, will not be wrinkled by nor interfere with the elbow movement. The sleeve protector when made of material described, will not only be very light, but will have some stiffness, and because of its eXtreme smoothness, will not adhere to the sleeve of a garment over which it is placed, and hence, will maintain its shape and not tend to crumple up and work toward the hand. Moreover, it will be waterproof and will not collect dirt. Obviously, it may be easily washed if it should become soiled. It is, therefore, of a very sanitary nature.
The inner cui? completely protects the cuff of the garment sleeve while the outer cuff covers and protects the said inner cui? and gives a neat, finished appearance to the sleeve protector.
lVhat l claim is:
1. A sleeve protector having a sleeve-like body and provided at one end with an inner and an outer cuff, the said outer-cuff being longitudinally split and provided with separable fasteners, and the said inner cuff, at its edge, having a hem and an elastic cord within said hem.
2. A sleeve protector having a sleeve-like body and provided at one end with an inner and an outer cuff, the said outer cud being longitudinally split and provided with separable fasteners, the said inner cuii', at its edge, having a hem and an elastic cord within said hem, the said hem and inner cuii being also split and provided with a separable fastener. Y
3. A sleeve protector having a sleeve-like body and provided at one end with an inner and an outer cud, the said outer cud being formed double with an inwardly and back- Wardly turned portion and. the said inner entf being separebly formed, the inwardly and baelrwardly turned portion of said outer cuff and the said inner cuil being connected to the sleeve-lile body by a common. line of stitches.
4. A sleeve protector having a sleeve-like body and provided et one end with un inner and an outer u, the said outer cuff being longitudinally split and provided with separable fasteners, the said inner culi', at its edge, having a hein and an elastic cord Within said hem, the said hem and inner` cuff being also split, and provided with a separable fastener, the said outer QuE being formed 15 the said inner cuff being connected to the 20 sleeve-like body by a common line of stitches,
