Specitication forming part et' Letters Patent- No. 50,308, dated October 3, i865.

To ctIZ whom it 'may Concern:

Be it known that l, JAMES XVARE, of North Hoboken, in theu county et' Hudson and State ot'New Jersey, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Drawers; and I do hereby de- Clare that 'the following is a full, clear, and exactdescription thereof, which will enable others skilled in the art to malte and use the same, reference being had to the accom panyin g d rawings, forming part ot this speciiication, in which- Figure l is a rie-w showing the application otmy invention. Fig. 2 shows the manner in which the drawers sit or lit to the legs or ankles ofthe wearer. Fig. 3 is a section taken in the line .lr e', Fig. l.

Much annoyance and mortilcation is often occasioned by the bottoms ot' the drawers getting untied and the strings consequently dang ling down below the pants. The object, therefore, of my invention is to provide a fastening which will entirely dispense with the use ot.

strings and be more reliable and better in every respect.

My invention therefore consists in inserting' a gore in the legs et' the drawers, which is made to extend down to the bottoms thereoi', and in inserting in the bottom ot' said gore an elast-ic band -for drawing or gathering up the bottoms of the drawers so as io make them tit snugly to the leg or ankle ot' the wearer. I

To enable others to understand my invention, I will proceed to describe it.

A represents the leg ol a pair et' drawers made in the usual way. 4

To apply my invention I cut out ot' the legs of the drawers, generally on the part which comes on the inside ot' the legs, a triangular or gore-shaped piece. I then cut from a piece of muslin a similar-shaped piece, Il, and insert in the drawers would be puckered up at various parts around the legs; but with the elastic band set into a gore the tendency oft-he saine is to draw the two parts or sides of the legs to' gelber, and the puchering is eontinedto the gore, which can be made et' a thinner material than the drawers, it' desired, and thus the legs will be tightened all round, and the circulation et' blood in nowisc interfered with.

l claim as new and desire to secure by Let. ters Patent- Inserting in the bottoms et' a pair otdrawers a gore-shaped pieceof fabric, having' an elastic band inserted in the saine, for the pui pose herein specitied, a pair ot' drawers thus made constilutin ture. l d

lhe above specitication ot' my invention signed b v me this lst day ot' July, 1865.
