'1 '0 all whom-it may concm'n:
Be it known that I, JOHN A. WOOTTEN, a citizen of the United States,1'esidi11g at Hot Springs, in the county of Garland and State of Arkansas, have invented certain new and useful vli'nprovements inlVearing- Apparel. of which the following is a specilieaiion, reference being had to the accompanying drawings. v
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in wearing apparel and more particularly to whatare generally known as overalls, the object of the invention being to provide a pair of overalls witha detachable apron, the upper edge of which is reniovably secured to an outwardly extending la p formed on the waist band.
Another object of the invention is the provision of a pair of overalls having a detachable apron which will possess advan tages in points of e'fliciency' and durability, is inexpensive to manufacture and at the same time is simple in construction and operation,
With the above and other objects in view as will become apparent as the description proceeds. the invention consists in certain constructions, combinations and arrangements of the parts that I- shall hereinafter fully describe and claim.
For a full understanding of the invention, reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, in which,
Figure 1 is a front "elevation of a pair of overalls illustrating the application of my improved detachable apron. Fig. 2 is a detail perspective view of one side portion of the apron. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of the opposite side portion of the apron. Fig. 4 is a detail sectional View; and Fig. 5 is a detail front elevation showing the connection between the apron and the o"eralls. I
Referringmore particularlyto the drawings, 1 indicates the front of the body portion' of the overalls. This body portion is eonstriwted, as illustrated in the accompanying drawings, of two pieces, one piece forming the lower or leg portions and the upper portion 2 which is sewed or secured in any suitable manner to the upper edge of the lower portion, provides a bib. It will be noted from the accompanying drawings, that the upper portion or bib 2 is provided with suitable pockets 3 whereby rules, pencils and various other small articles may be readily carried about,
At the junction of the upper and lower portions of the body, a flap 4 is provided, the upper edge of which is secured between the lower edge of the upper portion and the upper edge of the lower portion of the body and is provided with a plurality of buttons 5 which are adapted for engagement in the button holes 6 formed in the upper longitudinal edge of the detachable apron 7. My improved detachable apron is preferably construeted of the same material as the overalls or it may, if desired, be constructed of any other desired material. The apron may, if so desired, be provided with one or "more pockets as shown at 8 whereby nails,
or various tools may be carried thereby, so that the same will be within handy reach of Patented Apr. '4, 191a.
the person wearing the overalls. The apron 7 is provided at its outer edges with a suitable hem 9 formed by turning the edges inwardly upon the wrong side of the apron and sewing or otherwise securing the same to the body thereof.
From the above it will be noted that the apron may be used either with or without the overalls and if desired to use the same, it maybe easily and quickly attached to the flap L by engaging the buttons 5 with the button holes 6 or it may be quickly and easily removed therefrom. It will be readily apparent from the foregoing that I have provided a simple and durable detachable apron for overalls or other similar wearing apparel which is extremely simple in construction and can be manufactured at comparatively. low cost. i While I have shown and described the preferred form of my invention, it will-be obvious that various changes in the details of construction, and in the proportions may be resorted to for successfully carrying my invention into practice without sacrificing any of the novel features or departing from the scope of the appended claim.
Havingthus described the invention, what is claimed is:
