T 0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, BEATRICE ROSENBERG, a citizen of the United States, residing at Minneapolis, in the county of Hennepin and State of Minnesota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Childrens Bath-Garments; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such aswill enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention has for its object to provide an extremely simple and highly efiicient childs bath garment; and, to this end, it consists of the novel construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and defined in the claims.
In the accompanying drawings, which illustrate the invention, like characters indicate like parts throughout the several views.
Referring to the drawings,
Figure 1 shows an infant lying on the bath garment with the hood thereof placed on its head;
Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the bath garment;
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the garment spread out flat;
Fig. 4 is a fragmentary view corresponding to Fig. 3, but on a larger scale, and shgwing the hood detached from the bath r0 e' Fig. 5 is a detail view in section taken on the line 55 of Fig. 3, on an enlarged scale;
Fig. 6 is a detail view in section taken on the line 66 of Fig. 3, on an enlarged scale;
Fig. 7 is a perspective view, illustrating the first step in the process of making the hood; 7
Fig. 8 is a view corresponding to Fig. 7, but illustrating the hood in the next stage of its formation;
Two of these pieces of goods are sewed together to form the outside of the bath robe and the other two pieces are sewed together to form the inside or lining thereof. A seam is then run around the outer edges of the inner and outer thicknesses of the bath robe to connect the same.
The two edge portions of the bath robe, which are parallelto the inner and outer seam, at the back thereof, afford loose flaps 12 for the garment and these two flaps are folded at 13 outward upon themselves and feather-stitched to give the garment a neat and finished appearance. Between the flaps 12, the upper width of the garment is materially reduced by forming plaits 11 therein.
Attached to the bath robe 11, is a hood 15 and, like said bath robe, is also of double thickness and made from the same material. This hood 15 is made in a novel manner from a single piece of goods that is primarily of rectangular form. The first step in making the hood 15 is to fold the goods upon itself and connect the ends thereof by stitches to form seams 16, as shown in Fig. 7. The next step is to turn the piece of goods inside out to bring the two seams 16 between the two thicknesses of the hood, as shown in Fig. 8. A further step in forming the hood 15 is to fold one end of the goods into the other end thereof, as shown in Fig. 9, to give the hood its double thickness and to bring both seams 16 at the back of the hood and between said double thickness. A still further step is to fold what was primarily the intermediate portion of the piece of goods, as the same appears in Figs. 7 and 8, upon itself to form a cuff 17, as shown in Fig. 10. This cuff 17 is stitched in place and also feather-stitched.
The formed hood 15, in side elevation, is of rectangular form, as shown in Fig. 2, and, when folded out flat with the bath robe 11, is of triangular form. The back half of the hood 15, when spread out fiat, is sewed to the plaited upper edge of the bath robe 11, thus leaving the flaps 12 projecting outward or forward therefrom, as shown in Fig. 2. The upper edge of the bath robe 11 is also feather-stitched and, before the garment is finally finished, the seams in the back of the bath robe 11 and the seams 16 in the hood 15 are pressed or otherwise smoothed out, so that there are no rough or raised places in the garment.
In taking an infant from its bath, the
same is laid on the bath robe and wrapped therein and the hood l5 placed over its head. With the infant thus protected, the same may be partly dried with the bath robe and held therein while being completely dried, powdered and partly dressed. As the infant is being dried, the outer dry portions of the bath robe may be folded thereunder.
The above described infants bath garment, while extremely simple to make and easy to laundry, has, in actual usage, proven highly efiicient forthe purpose had in view.
What I claim is k 1. A bath robe having a hood formed from a rectangular piece of goods and attached thereto in a manner that gives said hood a rectangular form in side elevation and a triangular form when spread out fiat with the bath robe.
2. A hood formed from a single rectangular piece of goods that is folded both longitudinally and transversely upon itself to V afford a double thickness for the hood, the
ravages vertical edges of the goodsbeing' stitched together to afl'ord two seams at the back of the hood, the front of the hood being folded upon itself to form a cufi.
4:. A bath robe having a hood formed from a single rectangular piece of goods that is folded both longitudinally and transversely upon itself to afford a double thickness for the hood, the vertical edges of the goods being stitched together at the back of the hood and the horizontal edges thereof being stitched to the bath robe.
.5. A bath robe formed from a rectangular piece of goods having the intermediate.
portion of its upper edge folded to form plaits. and a hood formed from a single rectangular piece of goods that is folded both longitudinally and transversely upon itself to vafi'ord a double thickness for the hood, the vertical edges of the oods being stitched together at the back 0? the hood and the horizontal edges thereof being stitched to thg plaited upper edge portion of the bath r0 e.
