The present invention relates to adjustable
stretchers for clothing in general, the present
embodiment being adapted for stretching skirts,
trousers and the like. The speci?c object of the
invention is to provide a garment stretcher com in

to be relatively movable toward and from each
other, in combination with a simple and effec

assembly, as shown more particularly in Figs. 2
and 3.
It will be noted that the angular lengths l--a:,
l-zm: are straight line formations. To clamp
them in adjusted position, I have provided a slide
clamp 3 which carries one or more ?ngers 3-—a:.
The slide clamp encircles its appropriate angular
lengths l-:t, l—a: or l-—a:a:, l--x:c, as the case
may be, and the ?nger or ?ngers 3-4: are dis
