(01. 2-243) The present invention relates broadly‘t‘o bands for garments‘and more. especially is an ‘improver folded over, the strip of rubber is carried by the ?elded over portion. This .form attaches ‘ the sheet of rubber to the outside of the sheath, leav Reissue 16,641,‘ reissued May 31, 1927.. ‘ ‘ ‘ “ ing the inside face of the material free to move ‘ Where woven rubber thread webbing is utilized relative to the strip of rubber. As an alternate in an elastic band for a garment, the band is usu-‘, construction, the strip of rubber may be sewed a ally noticeable to thewearer‘because of the stiff, j su?icient distance from the edge of the cloth so ment upon the band disclosed ‘in the Harsh Patent thick eil'ect produced‘v by the “character of- the.‘ ‘ that. a cover .piece‘ of‘cloth is folded over the strip ‘ woven rubber elastic webbing. One of the prob- 1 of rubber and in‘ this construction, the rubber‘ lems ‘ encountered in the constructing . of an _elas- ‘ strip, is carried by the cloth adjacent the body of 10 .tic band for a‘ garment is to make‘ the band of the‘wearer. In either case, theband is extreme such character that it is extremely ?exible and ‘ ly flexible and has the effect of a folded'over piece does not tend to pull against the skin of the wear ' er so that the band will not be noticeable to the wearer. Where sheet rubber is utilized as in the Harsh construction, it is desirable that the rubber shall be anchored in such manner that the rubber . tends to lie ?at, not only when the garment is in use, but also when the garment is being laun 20 dered. To this end, it is desirable that the strip ‘ b of sheet rubber be anchored in place so that it does not tend to move or slide to one side of the sheath, where if it were ‘not anchored‘ it will take the form of a roll of sheet rubber. Where the rubber is anchored to the sheath in such man ner that both sides of the sheath are anchored together, there is less ?exibility than where free dom of movement is allowed between the side walls of the sheet. Another problem which comes into the manu 30 facture of devices of this character is the problem of simplicity. If a large number of seams are required, the cost of sewing becomes an element which must be considered. Inthe present invention, a strip of rubber is of cloth with two separate sides that are free 'to move within limits relative to each other. It is recognized that the present invention may 15 be‘carried out in constructions other than those speci?cally disclosed herewith, and, therefore, the disclosure is to be understood as illustrative and not‘ in the limiting sense. Fig. 1 is a plan view illustrating a portion of a 20 strip of highly elastic sheet rubber sewed adja cent the edge of a piece of stretchable cloth. Fig. 2 is an edge elevation of the construction shown in Fig. 1. - Fig. 3 illustrates the construction in Fig. 1 when 25 it is folded over on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1 with the edge of the cloth sewed to the body of the cloth by stretchable stitches. Fig. ,4 illustrates a strip of highly elastic sheet rubber sewed to a piece of cloth remote from the edge and with the edge folded over a strip of rubber and sewed to the body of the cloth by stretchable stitches to form a sheath in which the strip of rubber is enclosed. . Fig.5 is an edge elevational view 01' the con anchored to one face of a piece ‘of cloth adjacent struction shown in Fig. 4. to an edge thereof , which may be folded over with Fig. 6 illustrates a narrow strip of rubber se cured to a piece of stretchable cloth by means ‘of a single row of stretchable stitches passing the rubber anchored thereon, and sewed to the body of the cloth in such manner as to form an 40 enclosing pocket or sheath in whichthe strip of 35 a through the rubber and the cloth. . Fig. 7 illustrates an edge view of a completed sheet rubber is secured. ‘This construction re sults in a highly ?exible secure band which meets . band formed from the material shown in Fig. 6 the above speci?ed problems. The sheath may be formed in various ways, but 45 preferably, the completed device is formed by securing a strip of very elastic thin sheet rubber to a face 01‘ the garment material by the use of stretchable sewing. The edge of the garment to which the strip of rubber is anchored is then folded over and sewed by stretchable ‘stitching. Preferably, the band is formed directly on ‘the garment material. However, where desirable it may be made as a separate band. The strip of sheet rubber may be sewed adjacent the edge of .55 the garment material and when the material is when the same is folded over on line 1-1 of Fig. 6 and the edge of the cloth is sewed by stretchable stitches to‘ the body of the garment. 45 Referring more specifically to the drawing, Figs. 1 and 2 illustrate a piece of stretchable cloth I to which a strip of highly elastic sheet rubber 2 is secured by rows of“ stretchable stitches 4 and 5. The rubber is of such type that it will withstand laundering operations and thereby does not deteriorate due to laundry operations, or to perspiration from the body of the wearer. These Figs. 1 and 2 illustrate one of the steps in the manufacture of the band of one type. rm. 3 illustrates the edge of the stretchable cloth i carrying the strip of rubber 2 as being 2, and ‘3 or to the construction illustrated in Figs. 4 and 5. folded over on the line 3—3 of Fig. 1 and sewed - to the body of the cloth Iv by means of stretch able stitches 0. This construction forms a sheath iii-which the inner side wall ‘I comprises a single thickness of material which is not anchored to the outside sheath 8 that carries the strip of rubber 2 ; by this construction, the sides of the I. sheaths ‘I and 8 are free to move relative to each other to substantially the same extent as if the sheet of rubber were not present. Figs. 4 and 5 illustrate a construction which - The above constructions are simple in manu facture and are practical in use and provide a very satisfactory elastic band for many articles of wear where elastic bands are desirable. What I claim is: . 1. An elastic band for garments comprising an integral piece of textile material folded adjacent an edge to form a sheath having a pair of ion gitudinally extending opposed free side walls, a 10 strip of highly elastic and highly ?exible sheet rubber extending longitudinally between said op is similar to that illustrated in Figs. 1, 2, and ,3 posed side walls, stretchable stitches anchoring with the- exception that the sheet of rubber, 2 said strip of sheet rubber solely to one of said is sewed by elastic stitches I and 5 further away 1 side walls whereby the other of said side walls from the edge ~of the cloth, so as to leave a may move independently of said strip of rubber, suiilcient amount of cloth to be folded over to and stretchable stitches passing through the edge form the sheath that encloses the rubber strip 2. of said textile material to form closure means for In this construction, when the band is com said sheath. pleted, the rubber strip 2 is secured to the side 2. An elastic band for garments comprising a wall ‘I of the sheath, leaving the side wall I sheath formed of opposing side walls of stretch thereof entirely free except for the line of elastic able textile fabric, a/strip of highly ?exible and stitches 6 which secures the edge of the cloth highly elastic sheet rubber attached to the inner to the body thereof. face of one of said side walls and extending be Figs. 6 and '7 illustrate a construction similar to ' tween said side walls, stretchable stitches secur 25 that shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3 in which a narrow ing said strip solely to said inner face of one strip of elastic sheet rubber '9 is secured to the of said side walls with the other of said side stretchable cloth I by a single row of stitches 10. It will be clear to those skilled in the art that this variation of the invention may be applied either to the constructions illustrated in Figs. 1, walls comprising a cover member for said strip of rubber separate from‘ said strip of rubber and 'w being movable independently thereof. /' ' HARRY HARDIE. .
