application medA Marc-1i 1e', 192s. Serial No. 625,609.

To all whom it may concern.' i

Be it known that l, CHARLES S. SA'NVDERS, a citizen of the United States, residing at 417 lest Hoffman St., Baltimore city, State l of Maryland, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hair-Pressing Caps, g

peripheries of heads of various sizes and shapes so as to bind and press the hair against the scalp for securing the hair in whatever shape and position it has been ar-y ranged, and to assist the hair in becoming" and lower edges free, being ,between the stitching 7 and that which holds the bind-` set to the desired position or shape.k

A further object of the invention is to provide a cap of this character Which is of comparatively simple construction, formed of few parts, and comparatively inexpensive to manufacture.

lining being removed from its interior to show the connection of one of its opposite' elastic elements or sheets; Fig. 2 is a tilted end View; Fig. 3 is an enlarged and exaggerated sectional view, the section being along the line 3 3 of Fig. 1.

Referring to these drawings in detail, in

which similar reference characters refer to similar parts throughout the several views: The cap preferably comprises an outer fabric l and an inner fabric or lining 2, preferably both of silk or satin, and a binding strip 3 is stitched to the parts l and 2 and secures their lower edges together, as shown. The cap is also preferably formed in two primarily separate sections, or provided with a median seam 4 which unites the primarily separate halves of its inner and outer fabrics. p

Elastic elements or ysheets of rubber or combined rubber and fabric are shownat 5, these being inserted between the inner and outer fabrics at opposite sides of the cap, or at opposite sides of the median seam 4 l which latter 7extends the vertical median plane from front to rear of the cap.y The l vertical edges ,of `the elastic rsheets are stitched at @preferably with doublerows yof stitching,.and this stitching' extends throughy theinnerand outer fabrics as well as through the elastic elements. A row of stitchingfr l may also. extend horizontally fromthe stitchings 6 of:,each pair which ysecure the opposite ends yof each elastic or retractile element 5 to the inner and outer fabrics; but the stitching 7 is made before the folds 8 are formed, these folds being rformed by the retraction vof the elastic elements, or by any appropriate means for permitting the elastic elements to be stretched or extended in the horizontal direction or along ythe line 3-3. It should be understood that they elastic elements have their upper ing 3 in pla-ce; f f

the lower periphery of the cap can be stretched so as to fit much larger heads than it fits when contracted, and that when it has been adjustedy on any head larger than its kminimum periphery, it automaticallyk retracts and yconforms to the horizontal periphery of the head. This contraction takes effect. also in the horizontal central part of the cap, as well as in its lower part, in view of the fact that the elastic sheets extend up to said'horizontal central part or plane. guide for placing the elastic parts of the cap on corresponding parts of opposite sides of a personsl head, so that a substantially equal `pressure is` exerted on these corresponding parts, and the hair on the opposite sides of the head is pressed alike.

Apertures orvents 9 are formed throng the fabrics l and 2, in registering pairs,

The "median seam 4 serves as a and circular series of stitches 10 are ar f to the exact construction and arrangement here shown, but changes may be made within the scope of the inventive idea as implied and claimed.. f

What I claim as my invention is: A 1. The hair-pressing cap which includes av crown formed of an outer fabric and -an inner fabric, and tw'o elastic sheets between outer fabrics' being provided with pucker'sr orfolds at theelastic sheets to permit these opposite sides to be expanded and contracted, said elastic sheets being eective to cause the contraction of these sides for the purpose of holding and pressing the hair of the wearer. l y i y 2. The hair-'pressing vcap which includes a median sea-in extending from fronty to rear, also including inner and `outer kfabrics each provided with normally folded portions, and two sheets of elastic material between the outer and'inner fabrics at points "in `a vertical plane which intersects said 'seain at its middl`e the vertical edges of these elastic sheets being secured to said inner and outer fabrics while the upper and lower edges are free and extend between said folded portions, lsubstantially as described and shown, for the purpose specified.

`3. The hair-pressing cap which vincludes a crown formed of an outer fabric and an inner fabric, and an elastic sheet between and secured to the outer and inner fabrics at one side of the cap, the inner and outer fabrics being` provided with puclers or folds at the elastic sheet to permit this sideto be expanded and contracted, said elastic sheet being effective to cause thecontraction of the sides for the purpose of holding and pressing the hair ofthe wearer. i

In testimony whereof I affix iny signature.
