In the several iigures A is the front member,

sleeves of a knitted sweater of the pullover type.
'I'he front and back members are secured together
by the seams E, E, which include a resilient mem
ber G, and extend from the neck or collar to the
stitching, as shown in Figures 4 and 5. The seam
as described is of great durability and resistance 30
to strain and, at the same time, since, as will be
noted, the elastic member G is secured along one
of its edges only, it acts to prevent distortion of
the shoulders without reducing the resiliency of
the knitted fabric of which the garment is made. 35
What I claim and desire to protect by Letters
Patent is:
1. A sweater comprising front and back mem
bers forming a body and a neck and arm open
ings in the body, the front and back members 40
being secured together by seams extending from
the neck opening to the arm openings, said seams
comprising respectively a line of stitching secur
ing the free edge portions of the front and back
members together in superimposed relation along 45
a line spaced from the edges of said members, a
resilient member extending the length of said
seam and secured by said line of stitching adja
cent one of its edges to one of said members said
stitching extending over the free edges of said 50
members and of said resilient member, lines of
stitching in said front and back members, respec
tively, and extending the length of said seam in
substantial parallelism with said first mentioned
line of stitching and a thread extending back and 55
forth over the free edges of said members and
looped into said last mentioned lines of stitching.
2. The method of producing a seam for secur
ing sections of fabric together which comprises
superimposing the edge portions of two sections
of fabric, laying a resilient strip over the edge
portion of one of the sections of fabric with one
of its edges in substantial alignment with the free
edges of the superimposed edge portions of the
sections of fabric, stitching the superimposed edge
portions of the sections of fabric _and the resilient
strip together on a line spaced from the free edges
of the superimposed edge portions with an over
stitoh extending over the free edges of the super
imposed edge portions and the edge of the re
silient strip aligned therewith, extending the sec
tions of fabric in opposite directions, stitching
the sections of fabric respectively on lines sub
stantially parallel with the first mentioned stitch
ing and looping a thread extending back and
forth over the free edges of said superimposed
edge portions into saidiines of stitching in the 10
sections of fabric respectively.
