1 Claim. 1
This invention relates to ladies sweaters.
It is an object of the present invention to provide a sweater formed of knitted material with lace or embroidery trimmings and more particularly to the manner in which the lace or embroidery is connected with the sweater material.
Other objects of the present invention are to provide a sweater with blouse trimmings of lace or embroidery which will be inexpensive to manufacture, durable and strong, and simple to form.
According to the invention, the knitted material is stitched about the neck and sleeve ends so that the knitted material will not readily unravel and whereby to provide adequate material for the attachment thereto of lace or embroidery. The stitching can be effected in any well known manner either by hand or by machine and the stitching can take any form. By the use of this stitching the knitted material is strengthened and is prevented from unraveling and a good connection can be effected with the lace or embroidery may be connected therewith by a similar stitching operation.
For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claim in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure:
Fig. 1 is a front view of the sweater or blouse with the lace or embroidery attached thereto.
Fig. 2 is a fragmentary front elevational view of the sweater before the same has been stitched to receive lace or embroidery.
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary View similar to Fig. 2.
Fig. 4 is a cross sectional view taken through the sleeve construction on the line 44 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 5 is a fragmentary view of the sleeve showing a slightly different type of stitching thereon.
Fig. 6 is a rear elevational view of Fig. 1.
Referring now to the figures, l0 represents the body part of a sweater, at the upper end of which is a neck opening II on which stitching I2 is made. This stitching can be done with a machine or by hand and in any desired manner. The function of the stitching is to strengthen the material about the neck and prevent the same from unraveling and to provide a strengthened and good means to which lacing or embroidery may be attached. Thereafter lace or embroidery can be stitched to the neck opening as shown in Fig. 1. This neck lace is indicated at l3 at the front of the sweater and at l5 at the back of the neck opening. The lace l5 at the back of the neck opening is in the form of scalloped edging and it also extends downward at l5' to form a placket. The buttons l5 are secured to lace l5 on one side of the placket [5 and are buttoned through the lace 15 on the other side of the placket I5, the lace l5 forming button holes I5 for the buttons |5.
Extending outwardly from the shoulders of the sweater are short sleeve portions I4 which can be stitched as indicated at [5 in the same manner that the neck has been stitched. A lace or arm band It is stitched to sleeve portions H. To the arm band or lace Hi, there is connected a knitted extension IT.
The neck opening is cut out of the knitted material before the stitching has been made. Hence after the stitching is applied to the fabric, there has been provided a method of forming a sweater with a lace trim.
In Fig. 5, there is shown a form of stitch wherein the threads, as indicated at I8, are woven over the ends of the knitted material.
The lace stitching for the sleeve portions is indicated'at I9. This stitching will take place at locations inwardly from the stitching on the sleeve portions.
While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claim.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:
A sweater comprising a body part of knitted material, said body part having a neck opening therein, a stitching extending through the knitted material about the neck opening, and a lace or embroidery trim, stitched to the neck opening inwardly of the reinforcing stitching, the front of the neck opening being extended by a comparatively wide lace or embroidery trim while the rear neck opening being extended with a comparatively narrow scalloped edge lace or embroidery trim, said narrow scalloped edge lace or embroidery trim extending downwardly at the back of the sweater to form a neck placket and to serve as a base for the buttons and to form complementary button holes for said buttons.
