(Cl. a-z'm' tion with the drawing which forms a part of this invention relates to a connection between two non-overlapping or abutting edges of textile application, and in which ' Fig. 1 is a perspective view somewhat diagram matic, illustrating the connection between the _materlal. More particularly stated, the invention relates 5 to a connection between an edge of a textile fab textile fabric having a warp and the edge of a knitted, woven or braided fabric; Fig. 2 is a plan view on an enlarged scale illus a textile fabric having a warp or having a selvage edge or an edge in which the threads are locked 10 so they will not slip, and an edge of a band, welt 0r cuff formed of knitted, woven or braided fab trating the connection between the two fabrics; Fig. 3 is a sectional elevation taken substan 10 tially on line 3-3 of Fig. 2; Fig. 4 is a view similar to Fig. 3 but showing ric having parallel elastic threads, the edge being substantially parallel to said parallel threads or the loops which connect the edges pulled tight; me.

Be ing formed of different texture the cuffs must be 25 connected in some manner to the edge of the The invention brie?y described consists of a connection between and a method of joining the edges of two pieces of fabric, one piece of- fabric having an elastic warp or parallel elastic threads body of the garment.

The 7 Another object of the invention is to form a connection between two pieces of elastic mate rial, one of which has a warp so arranged as to 50 provide a connection that will stretch with the ' materials or fabrics connected and will permit the materials joined to be stretched to their full limit of elasticity. edges of the pieces A and B are joined by double loops C and D which are formed by a looper in the usual well known manner. Fig. 2 illustrates more in detail an embodiment of the invention in which the piece A of material has warp threads II and weft or ?ller threads i i.
