UNITED STATES ,PATEN'T OFFICE.
FLORENCE EHRENBERG, or SPOKANE, WASHINGTON. V
Application filed January 29, 192o.""'ser1a1 no. 354,810.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FLoRnNoE EHRENBERG, a citizen of the United States, residing at Spokane, in Spokane county and State of Washington, have'invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sleeping-Garments,,
of which the following is a specification.
The present invention relates to an 1mproved sleeping garment designed espe cially for juniors or infants, but equally applicable for use by seniors and adults, and
providing a sanitary, comfortable, and con venient sleeping bag or envelop forjeither outdoor or interior sleeping.-
"with equal facility be taken oil the wearer,
and which, when in place may be fastened and secured to provide adequate protection,
and also be attached to the sleepers bed to prevent entangling by. a restless sleeper.
With these ends in View the invention consists in certain novel combinations and arrangements of parts as will be hereinafter specified and set forth in the appended claim, and as depicted in the accompanying drawings, wherein I have illustrated one complete example of the physical embodiment of my invention constructed according to the best mode I have so far devised for the practical application of the principles of my invention.
Figure 1 is a plan View of the garment forv juvenile use, showing the bottom or base flap turned partly open for convenience of illustration.
Fig. 2 isra perspective view depicting'the sleeping garment in use with its lower corners folded back over the front ofthe envelop for additional protection to the l0wer extremities of the child, and exemplifying the manner of temporarily attaching the garment to the crib or bed.
Fig-1.53 is a vertlcal sectlonal View of the garment in position for use.
In the preferred form of the invention illustrated the drawings, the garment is Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented war. 1,
made up ofa single piece of material, which matenal varies 1n weight for winter, sum
mer, or medium weightfand comprises an.
envelop or bag closed at the top and openable at the lower portion, the front of gar-- ment being indicated as 1 while the back is indicated at 2. In the manufacture of'the' garment the single, rectangular strip, is folded as indicated and at the sides is stitched as at 2',.and-the neck opening 3 is cut in the longitudinal center of the malerial to form an aperture for the neck at the unstitched fold at the top of the garment,
the placket 4, which may be buttoned, pro-.
viding additional space for slipping the garment down and up over the head of the wearer in putting it on or taking it off.
In folding the strip of material prior to stitching at the sides, one fold is made purposely longer than the other in order that a flap 5 may be fashioned to close the lower open end of the garment, the flap preferably being an extension of the fold that forms the back 2 of the garment, and this flap, as will be apparent from an inspection of the drawings is designed to be folded around the lower end of the bag and over the bottom of the front 1, closing the lower opemng, after the garment has been adjusted in place.
- The flap is hemmed as at 5' to reinforce its free end and along the hemmed edge a suitable number of regularly spaced loops 6 are attached to be fastened over the complementary buttons 7 sewed at the proper points and locations on the face of the front 1, and
by securing these loops and buttons the flap may be held in folded position to form a comfortable closure for the lower open end of the garment to shield the lower extremities from the atmosphere.
In addition to the warmth and comfort secured by the double thickness of material at the lower front of the garment, this may I be supplemented by folding inwardlythe lower corners of the garment, as indicated in Fig. 2, and now these folds are temporarily attached to the front 1 of the garment by utilizing the pair of oppositely disposed loops 8, 8, which project outwardly from the corners of the garment from under the flap and may be slipped over the single button 9 attached or sewed to the front of the garment about centrally thereof. These added folds provide additional thickness of material with consequent warmth and protection for the lower limbs of the child using the sleeping garment.
To enable the restless child to move and i turn within the envelop, and prevent the A -tained in spite of the movements of a restless sleeper, thus permittin freedom of movement without likelihood of disarranging the garment or uncovering the wearer;
In order that the garment may be rendered sanitary and afford proper protection against permanent defacement or soiling of the bed or mattress, an inner pocket 12 is provided, of the shape indicated in dotted lines and sewed to the back or back wall of the garment. The pocket'is open at the lower end adjacent the lower open end,of the garment so that a rubberized cloth or inserted therein, andthen' the pocket is buttoned or closed by using [the attachment 13 shown in dotted lines Fig. 1. For laundrying the rubberized, or sanitary sheet may be withdrawn and Washed or cleansed in suitable manner, and of course the garment may be inverted or turned inside out for laundr ing purposes.
rom the above description taken in connection with my drawings it is apparent that I have devised'a sleeping garment that adequately fulfils all the requirements of a comparatively perfect device, that is warm, comfortable, convenient for putting on or taking off, and one which is simple in construction and comparatively inexpensive of produc tion.
What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent isthe front of the garment, additional loops at the lower corners of the garment for attachment to a centrally located button on the front of the garment when said lower Acne-piece sleeplng garment having a corners are folded over the front of the garment toward each other, said garment havother sheet impervious to moisture may be "ling an interior pocket on' its back wall for the reception of a sanitary sheet, and attaching devices alongthe edges of the garment for connection with a bed as described.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
