11E/klim. (Cl. 2-24-7) A intentionr `relates toA a. new and.l useful method of constructing pockets, and more particularly to back or hip pockets of such garments as are generally worn fromand below the waist. *Y @ne of the *objects ofthe present invention is t0 provide a novel pocket structure in which a unique method is employed for assembling the same in a garment.
'Another object of this invention is to produce a preformed back pocket consisting of a short inner layer and a long outer layer which may be piece of pocket material upon itself lengthwise or imposing one separate layer of material upon another and binding the raw edges with tape or narrow strips of fabric to close the sides and, in some instances, the bottom of the pocket and thereby providing strong, neat and clean seams.
A further object of the invention is to enclose the raw edges of the pocket layers in the fold of a tape or equivalent material and secure said tape in place and closeV the meeting edges of the stitching operation.
A still further object of the invention is to produce a preformed pocket, including a facing strip on one pocket layer and a finishing strip along the upper edge of the companion layer which finishing strip is positioned opposite the facing strip, then providing a slit inthe garment material and sewing the pocket layers to the garment material along opposite edges of said slit.
With the above and other objects in View this invention consists of the details of construction and combination of elements hereinafter set forth and then designated by the claim.
In order that those skilled in the art to which this invention appertains may understand how to make and use the same I will describe its construction in detail referring by numerals to the accompanying drawing forming a part hereof, in which- Fig. 1 is Vfragmentary view of the inside of a pair of trousers showing an assembled back pocket.
Ifn carrying mitl my invention as herein. ernbodied- I0 representsa piece of pocket material having afacing strip IIi ofV garment material located. adjacent one end thereof and sewn thereto by as single row of stitches I2. A finishing strip I3 of garment material is folded around the other end of the piece of pocket material in U-shape formation and the flanges thereof sewn to said piece of pocket material by the row of stitches I4. The piece of pocket material il! is then folded upon itself longitudinally intermediate its ends with the finishing strip I3 imposed on the facing strip II, Fig. 3, to provide an outer long layer l5 and an inner short layer I6. Pieces of tape I'I or equivalent binding material are folded over the meeting or raw edges of the panels and sewn in place by the stitches I8 and said panels may be further secured together by rows of stitches I9 which latter are parallel to the rows of stitches I8 and adjacent rows are formed during one sewing operation. Thus the preformed pocket is completed having an entrance 20 between the facing and finishing strips.
To install the pocket a slit 2l is made in the garment material 22 at the proper location and the partially severed material turned back inn wardly as at 23 and 24, Fig. 4, to form folded edges for the pocket opening comprised of said slit 2 I.
The pocket is then imposed on the inner surface of the garment material with the folded edge of the finishing strip I3 approximately coinciding with the lower folded edge of the pocket opening or slit-2I and sewn in place by stitches 25 which pass through the folded garment material 24, the finishing strip I3 and the layer I6 of the pocket material and said stitches 25 is all that fastens the fold 24 in place.
Next, the portion of the longer layer l5 of the pocket, which was temporarily turned back to permit sewing operation which formed the stitches 25, is now turned up or replaced and said longer layer is sewn to the garment material in the region of the folded portion 23 by the stitches 2t passing through said folded portion 23, the facing strip IIvand the layer i5 of the pocket. At the ends of the row of stitches 26, Fig. 1, are tack stitches 21 to secure the ends of the slit or pocket opening.
The upper end of the pocket panel l5 or eX- tension is long enough to project upwardly beneath the waist band 28 so that when the latter is sewn in place the pocket will be additionally secured to prevent undue pull upon the garment material about the pocket opening.
0f course I do not wish to be limited to the exact details of construction herein shown and described as these may be varied within the limits of the appended claim without departing from the spirit of my invention.
Having described my invention what I claim as new and useful is:
The method of forming a back pocket for trousers consisting of slitting the trousers material at the desired location folding the edges produced by the slit backward and inward to provide folded edges, producing a preformed pocket by sewing a facing strip of the trousers material to one face of said pocket material in spaced relation to one end of the latter, folding a finishing strip of trousers material over the opposite end of said pocket material and stitching said finishing strip in place, folding the pocket material upon itself with the finishing strip in the region of the facing strip and the folding binding strips over the coinciding side edges of folded pocket material and sewingsaid binding strips in place leaving the edge withthe finishing strip thereon free to provide a pocket entrance, imposing the pocket on the inside 0f side edges coinciding,
the trousers with the finishing strip in the region of the folded edge of the trousers below the slit and stitching said folded edge and the finishing strip and the edge of the pocket material enclosed by said finishing strip together, then stitching together the folded edge above the slit and the facing strip and the pocket material, and finally enclosing a portion of the pocket material above the facing strip in the waist band of the trousers.
