To all whom z't may concern.'
Be it known that we, CHARLES R. BRADLE and SARAH C. SMITH, citizens of the United States, 'respectively residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, and 'at Philadelphia, in the county of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new. and useful Improvements in-Garments, of which the following l .is a speclfication.
following description when taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, wherein- Figure l-shows the garment as it appears Y UPOII 3, Weallel".
Fig. 2 is a modification showing that the sleeves may terminate in gloves, when desired.
Fig. 3 is a plan view of the garment when spread out.
In all the views thesame reference characters are employed to indicate similar parts. The garment is, preferably, a one piece structure, comprising two sleeves joined by a cape part, to cover the arms and a portion of the Vback of the wearer. The cape may extend down the back as far as desired, and the sleeves may terminate in'mitts or gloves. `This variation is especially desirable when the garment is made ofa woolen knitted fabric, and particularly useful for wear by children, as a means-for protecting a vulnerable portion of the torso and for the pur- Specication of Letters Patent.

pose of retaining the gloves on the hands of the child.
The garment may yalso be made use of in association with a woolen scarf, so that they may be worn together in lieu of a sweater or either garment may be independently Vremoved and the other retained when localization of warmth is desired.
When the garment is made of water proof material, such as oil cloth, it will be highly appreciated b-y men who deliver lice, by carrying it on their shoulders; the water of condensationl will be readily shed from the shoulder and back by the impervious covering, leaving the under garments dry and warm.
There are other uses, no doubt, for the l garment, which will be readily suggested from a mature consideration of its advantages. In the drawing 5 represents the cape o body part which joins the sleeves 6 and 7.
The sleeves may terminatein cuffs 8 and 9, as shown in Fig. 3, or when made of knitted fabric, or Jersey cloth, gloves, as shown in Fig. 2, may terminate the sleeves.
The sleeves above the cuffs may be closed by snap fasteners 10 and a similar fastening device may be used to close the garment around the neck.
Having described our invention, what we claim is A one piece garment comprising a'body part having a laterally-extending, wider back-covering cape, for covering the back below the shoulders of the wearer; an oppositely disposed collarpart to button around hands.
