lb all? whont if; ma concern.-
Be it known that I, CAROLINE EMILY GER- RUDE WAGNER, of the city of Toronto, in he county of York, in the Province of Onario, Canada, have invented certain new ,nd useful Improvements in Collar Measurers ,nd Fitters, of which the following is the pccification.
My invention relates to improvements in ollar measurers and fitters; and the object f the invention is to devise a cheap and :fficicnt adjustable device of this class vhereby ladies collars or ribbons may be tccurately measured, fitted, and finished; Ind it consists, essentially, of a strip of metal f arc-shape form provided at one end with Two sets of slots, one near the top and one iear the bottom edge, and at the opposite 11d with two tongues having inwardly-bent ands designed to engage the aforesaid slots vhcn the strip of metal is bent up into the :ollar form, the measurer being otherwise :onstructed and arranged in detail as herenafter more particularly explained.
Figure 1 is a perspective view of my collar neasurer and fitter, showing it closed and in he position in which it will be fitted around ;he neck. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of ;he collar open.
In the drawings like characters of refernce indicate corresponding parts in each lgure.
A is a metal plate, preferably spring metal, ,vhich is provided near one end with one set )f slots (0, preferably a quarter of an inch From center to center and located near the .ipper edge, and another set of slots a near phe bottom edge and preferably the same iistance apart and located opposite the iforesaid slot each to each. The distances rpart of the slots are indicated by the nunerals 12, 13, 14, and 15, &c., if iecessary, such numbers indicating inches.
a and a are tongues provided with inward bends, such inward bends being designed to be brought through the top and oottom slots, respectively, so as to get the set and fit of the collar, such tongues locking the ends in position.
a is a loop stamped or formed out of the collar intermediate of its length and designed to receive a hook or other device for holding down the back of a collar or ribbon while it is being fitted.
2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 are rows of holes which are designed to be utilized while embroidering a collar .which is previously fitted onto the plate. The edge holes 2 and 6 may be utilized for basting the collar in position.
. The measurer and fitter may be utilized in various ways for measuring, fitting, and finishing collars, stocks, or ribbons for the neck. I
Although I show my device as particularly applicable to collars, it will of course be understood that it may be with equal facility applied to belts or cuffs without departing from the spirit of my invention.
In using my invention I take the plate and place it around the neck in the form shown in Fig. 1, placing the lower tongue in a slot, so that the device will fit the neck at the bottom, and the upper tongue in an upper slot, so as to fit the neck at the top, and by this means I get a perfect fit. I then disengage the tongues and unclasp the device from the neck and fit it together into the same slots again and form my collar on my device in such form. I then rip it off and put it together in any suitable way, depending whether it is a permanent collar or stock or ribbon.
WVhat I claim as my invention is 1. A measurer and fitter for collars and the like comprising an arc-shaped plate of metal provided toward one end with two sets of alined slots, one at the top and one at the bottom and at the opposite end with projecting tongues having inwardly-bent ends designed to fit into the aforesaid slots as and for the purpose specified.
2. A measurer and fitter for collars and the like comprising an arc-shaped plate of metal provided toward one end with two sets of alined slots, one at the top and one at the bottom having the size-measurement indexes opposite them and at the opposite end with projecting tongues having inwardlybent ends designed to fit into the aforesaid slots as and for the purpose specified.
3. A measurer and fitter for collars and the like comprising an arc-shaped plate of metal provided toward one end with tWo plate intermediate of its length and near the sets of a lined slots, one at the top and one at bottom edge as and for the purpose specified.
the bottom havin the size-measurement T 1 I indexes opposite th em. and at the opposite CAROLH\E WAGBER' 5 end with proj eeting tongues having inwardly- Witnesses:
bent ends designed to fit into the aforesaid B. BOYD,
slots, and a metal loop struck out of the C. H. BATE.
