e May 20 1947- A. c. SORGE 2,420,916


My invention refers to shoulder and coiffure protectors for displaying over-head draped garments and it has for its object to provide a circular cape adapted to be draped from the neck over the shoulders or to be lifted therefrom and secured over the head of the model displaying garments.

With the above and other objects in View, which will appear as the description proceeeds, the invention resides in the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts, substantially as hereinafter described, and more particularly defined by the appended claim, it being understood that such changes in the precise embodiment of the herein disclosed invention may be made as come Within the scope of the claim.

In the accompanying drawing is illustrated one complete example of the physical embodiment of the present invention constructed according to the bestmode so far devised for the practical application of the principles thereof.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 represents a perspective view of a figure having fitted thereto a cape embodying the features of my invention.

Figure 2 is a similar view illustrating the cape folded over and engaging the head of the operator.

Figure 3 is an enlarged plan view of the protector.

Figure 4 is a detailed cross section through the edge of one of the cape sections, the section being indicated by line 4-4 of Figure 3.

Referring by characters to the drawings, I and l' indicate semicircular cape sections formed from any light flexible material such as oilsilk or the like, The sections are lapped and secured together by stitching 2 2. The center of the cape sections are formed with a neck opening 3 reinforced by a suitable binding and said neck opening is interrupted by a radially disposed placket opening 4, which placket opening is Provided with suitable snap fastenings 4', it being understood that the placket extends to a point adjacent to the circular edge of the cape. The circular edge of the cape has stitched thereto a pair of tapes 5 and 5', which tapes terminate adjacent to the seamed edges of the cape section and these tapes form loops through Which draw strings 6 and 6 extend with their free loose ends adapted to be connected b suitable ties. It will also be noted that the front section I' of the cape, adjacent to the placket, may be provided with vent openings 'l intermediate the Width of the cape which vent openings permit free breathing of the model when the cape is suspended over the head thereof. By this simple and convenient arrangement it is apparentl that when displaying shoulder garments, the cape is folded down `upon the shoulders, as shown in Figure 1 of the drawings, to serve as a protector. When it is desired to remove or insert the garment over the head of the model as shown in Figure 2 of the drawings, the cape is folded from the neck band up and over the head and thereafter the draw strings are pulled together so as to form a complete bag with the edges nested together and secured by the draw strings. Hence, the hair and face of the model is thoroughly protected when removing or replacing garments and said model may freely breathe and see through the protector.

I claim:

A shoulder and coiffure protector for displaying over head draped garments comprising a circular cape having a neck opening and a placket extended therefrom, a pair of tapes secured at their edges to the circular periphery of the cape forming loops, a pair of draw strings mounted in the loops having terminal ends adjacent to each other, the cape being adapted to rest over the shoulders of the user or to be folded over the head thereof and secured in its over head folded position by the draw strings.
