T 0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Vrcron GtnNzBUnc, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in'Garments,bf which the following'is a specification.
The object of this invention is to provide a garment worn by women in which brassiere, corset cover and dress shields are combined in one garment. These have generally been worn separate from one another, the brassiere being made of a netted or like material, the cover being worn over the same, two garments therefore being worn above the corset and inside of the waist.
The object, therefore, of thisinvention is to provide a garment incorporating both a corset cover and a brassiere intoa single garment, it beingso arranged however that the two portions of the garment are sufiiciently detachable for washing purposes.
These and other objects are accomplished by my invention, a more particular description of which appears below.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a rear elevation of my improved garment; Fig. 2 is a front elevation of the same; Fig. 3 is an elevation of the same, the brassiere portion being separated from the corset cover-portion; Fig. at is atop view of a portion of the garment; Fig. 5 is a front view of a. portion of the garment. parts of the same being broken away; Fig. 6 is a view of my improved garment in use; Fig. 7 is a sectional view on the line 77 of Fig. 5, looking in the direction of the arrows; and Fig. 8 is a sectional view on the line 8-8 of Fig. 5, looking in the direction of the arrows.
Similar reference characters designates similar parts throughout the several views.
My improved garment consists of a brassiere portion 1 of nettedor like material.
garment. Atthe front ends of the garment are hooks and eyes or equivalent fastening means'8 and tapes 9 for holding the garment in position about the body.
The corset 'cover portion 10 of the garinent comprises a rear portion 11- and portions 12 which extend around the front of the wearer and the ends of the same are provided with buttons 13 or other fastening means and tapes 14. The corset cover portion 10 is placed outside of the brassiere portion, the rear portion 11 being secured thereto at the lower edge or waist line of the garment by stitches 15. The front portions 12 of the corset cover portion of the garment are not secured to the brassiere portion of the garment but are provided at their lower ends 'with shirrings 16 and elastic strips 17, the
elastic strips giving the corset cover the desired shape and holding the same firmly about the body. -The corset cover portion is also secured to the brassiere portion at its upper edge by snap fasteners or the like 18, thus making the corset cover portion detachable "from the brassiere portion at its upper edge. It will also be noted that the corset cover portion is detachable from the brassiere portion at every point excepting where it is secured by the stitches 15 at the waist line to that of the corset cover and brassiere portions can be readily ironed separately from one another.
From the foregoing, it is obvious that my invention is not restricted to the specific embodiment shown herein, but is broad enough to cover all structures coming within the scope of the annexed claims.
lVhat I claim is:
1. In an article of the. class described, the combination of an inner garment of a net fabric, an outer garment arranged over the same, the rear of the outer garment at its .lower edge being permanently secured to the rear of the inner garment at its lower edge and the rear of the outer garment at its upper edge being detachably secured to the rear of the inner garment at its upper edge.
2. In an article of the class described, the combination with an inner garment of a net fabric material, of an outer garment over I,
said inner garment, the lower edge of said outer garment. at the rear of the garment being permanently secured to the lower edge of the inner garment at the rear, the upper edge of the outer garment at the rear being detachably secured to the upper edge of the inner garment at the rear, the front portions of the garments being unattached to one another, and elastic portions in the lower edges of the front portions of the outer garment.
3. In an article of the class described, the combination with an inner garment of a net fabric material, a pair of dress shields secured to said inner garment adjacent its arm portions, an outer garment over said inner garment, the lower edge of said outer garment at the rear of the same being sewed to the lower edge of the innergarment at the rear of the same, the upper edge of the outer garment at the rear of the same being detachably' secured by fastening devices to the upper edge of the rear of the inner garment, the front portions of the inner and outer garments being unattached to one another, and elastic portions arranged in the lower edges of the front portions of the outer garment.
