This invention relates to new and useful im»
provements in shoulder pads.
Heretofore, it has been general practice to pro
vide a shoulder pad With cloth casing material
into which a pad is mounted. It has been pro
posed to hold the pad relative to the casing by
together With a line of stitches I5.
In the particular design of the shoulder pad
shown on the drawing, the third side is curved
convexly. For this reason the over-lapping top
portion of the` bottom layer is formed with sev
eral pleats, darts or shirring I3. The important
:feature of the invention resides in the fact that
no stitches are engaged through the interior pad
I I. For this reason, the pad will not be weakened
along any line or area. The shoulder pad itself
stitches extended across the pad and also engag
ing through the casing. This construction mate
rially reduced the padding effect of the shoulder
pad. It divides the shoulder pad into sections,
Where the stitches occur, which are relatively
flexibly connected With reduced areas, which do
not produce a good pad effect. This invention
proposes an improved shoulder pad which is char
acterized by so arranging the stitches thatJ they
has greater rigidity and is better capable of sup
porting the shoulder of a dress or garment.
This shoulder pad is adapted to be stitched in
. the seam joining the sleeve and armhole, at the
do not pass through the pad material in the cloth
shoulder, without stitching through the casing
and padding of this shoulder pad.
In Figs. 3 and 4 another embodiment of the in~
vention has been disclosed which is very similar
It is further proposed, in a modiñed form of 20 to the prior form, distinguished simply in the
fact that the shoulder pad has been provided with
the invention to provide a stiffening strip for as

Still further, the invention proposes the con

struction of a shoulder pad as mentioned which
is simple and durable and which may be manu 25 formed transversely across the casing lil, along
the chord of the casing, The passage I3 is formed

For further comprehension of the invention,
and of the objects and advantages thereof, refer
ence will be had to the following description and 30
accompanying drawing, and to the appended
claim in which the various novel features of the
invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawing forming a ma

constructed in accordance with this invention.
Fig. 2 is a sectional View taken on the line 2.-2
of Fig. l.

adjacent portion of the top layer i3. A line of
stitches I S closes one side of the passage I8. The
other side of the passage is closed by the line of
stitches I5.
In other respects this form of the invention is
identical to the prior form and identica1 parts
may be recognized by identical reference numer
als given them.
The advantage of using the stiffening strip I1
resides in the fact that the pad is materially
stiffened across its Width without materially add
