DREAMS A SEAMLESS COAT
Woman's Tailor Wakes Up and Makes
Orange. N J . January 2??Take It
from Bernard Shapiro, a ladies' tailor
here, that great things come of dreams.
Mr. Shapiro save he has. through a
dream, solved the problem of the seam?
less form-fitting coat for women that
has been the hope and the despair of
tailors for the fair sex since men began
to make clothes for women.
There an I a seam in the Shapiro
coat, and the task of cutting, basting
and sewing is eliminated. The tailor
?aye his invention will revolutionize the
' making of clothes all over the world.
I There is also bone for men. for if a
seamless coat for women can be evolved
why not one for men. asks Mr. Shapiro.
For fourteen years Mr. Shapiro had
been working over the problem of mak?
ing a coat that could be fitted to the
shape without ?-Utting the cloth into
pieces. sewing them into seams.
The problem became so great a part
of his life that he never went to sleep
but that he dreamed of it.
"One night a few years ago." s.iys
Mr. Shapiro. "I went to bed after
working all day on a piece of cloth
which I was trying to tailor into a
SOSllllins coat. I dreamed about Inf
work, and all of a sudden I saw myssM
making the coat. Then I discovered
t>... sr., ret. The njjc? morning 1 got
busy on th" cloth again, and before
the day was over I had finished the
first seamless coat ever made."
The tailor also dreamed that his in?
vention brought him riches To n.ako
this part of his dream come true he
has applied for a patent.
