UNITED .STATES LEAH G. MILKES, OF MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA.

CHILD'S SLEEPIN q-GARMEN '1'.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Oct. 18-, 1921 Application filed February 9, 1921. Serial No. 443,575.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, LEAH G. MILKES, 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 Sleeping-Garments; and I do hereby declare the following to be afull, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

My present invention relates to that type of sleeping garment especially adapted for use by children and frequently designated as pajamas or sleepers, and which, of course, have legs.

Sleeping garments of this type are sometimes provided with feet and sometimes are made footless. It has been the custom of stores to carry a stock including both types, and there seems to be about as much demand for one as the other. Some children consider the foot-equipped garments too warm, but there are always times in cold weather when the foot-equipped garments would be preferred. Otherwise stated, the real demand would be for a sleeping garment that could be readily converted from a foot-equipped to a footless arment, and my invention is, therefore, dlrected to a provision of this feature.

The improved sleeping garment is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein like characters indicate like parts throughout the several views.

Referring to the drawings:

Figure 1 is a perspective showing a child wearing a sleeping garment designed or equipped in acordance with my invention;

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary perspective showing one of the garment le s with the foot portion'folded so that, in e ect, it makes the garment footless;

Fig. 3 is an enlarged section on the line 33 of Fig. 2;

Figs. 4 and 5 are fragmentary perspectives showing the foot portion of the garment in the process of folding;

Fig. 6 is an enlarged vertical section taken through one of the foot portions of the garment and showing the same adjusted for use;

Fig. 7 is a section on the same line as Fig. 6, but illustrating the manner in which the foot ortion of the garment is adapted to be folded and Fig. 8 shows the foot portion of the gar- .points at the sides and are 1 ment folded as in Fig. 2 and illustrating the Way in which it will appear when worn .b a chlld, with the childs bare foot projecting therethrough. i

The body, of the garment is indicated as an entirety by the numeral 9. To the lower ends of the legs of this garment are attached moccasin-like feet 10 preferably of the same materlal as the garment itself. These feet 10 are attached to the legs of the garment at the rear, half-way around diametrically opposite polnts at opposite sides, but at the front are open forward from said opposite preferably turned over and provided with a hem 11. The legs, at their lower front portions, are provided with extended flaps 12 that overlie the top of the feet. These flaps 12 are provided near their extended ends with button holes 13, adapted, when the flaps are turned upward, to be engaged with buttons 14 provided on the fronts of the legs. .The soles of the feet 10, near their toes, are provided with button holes 15, which, when the feet are folded as shown .in Fig. 7 and then turned backward and upward as indicated by arrows, are

adapted to be engaged with buttons 16 on the backs of the legs, (see Figs. 3 and 8). When the feet and flaps are folded and secured on the buttons as just described, the legs will be open at the bottoms so that a childs feet may project therethrough and the garment is then, for all intents and purposes, a footless garment. When the feet and flaps are turned down, as shown in Figs. 1 and 6, a foot-equipped garment is afforded in which the top of the feet are overlapped by the flaps 12 and the front openings are closed.

As is evident, the construction described may be easily made and makes the garment universally adaptable for colder and warmer weather and to the desires of the wearer. With the arrangement described,it is not necessary to provide detachable feet in order to convert the garment from a footless to a foot-equipped garment, and the feet are always attached to the garment so that they cannot be lost or displaced when not in use. a

What I claim is:

1. A garment of the kind described having attached foot portions with openings at the top of the foot portions extended approximatel half-way around the legs and adapting t e foot portions, when folded, to

be turned u so that the feet can project through the leg of the garment, and means for fastening the folded and back-turned foot portions against the backs of the legs of the garment. 1

2. A garment of the kind described having attached foot portions with openings at the top of the foot portions extended approximately half-way around the legs and adapting the foot portions, when folded, to be turned up so that the feet can project through the leg of the garment, buttons on the backs of the legs and button holes in the front portions of the soles of the foot portions engageable with said buttons to secure the foot portions when folded in upturned position at the backs of the legs.

3. A garment of the kind described having attached foot portions with openings at the top of the foot portions extended approximatel half-way around the legs and adapting t e foot portions, when folded, to be turned up so that the feet can pro ect through the leg of the garment, and means for fastening the folded and back-turned foot portions against the backs of the legs of the garment, said legs, at their fronts,

having extended flaps adapted to I overlie the feet.

4. A garment of the kind described having attached foot portions with openings at the top of the foot portions extended approximately half-way around the legs and adapting the foot portions, when folded, to be turned up so that the feet can project through the leg of the garment, buttons on the backs of the legs, and button holes in the front portions of the soles of the foot portions engageable with said buttons to secure the foot portions when folded in .upturned position at the backs of the legs said legs, at their fronts, having extende flaps adapted to overlie the foot portions.

5. A garment of the kind described having attached foot portions with openings at the top of the foot portions extended approximately half-way around the legs and adapting the foot ortions, when folded, to be turned up so t at the feet can project through the le of the garment, means for fastening the folded and back-turned foot portions against the backs of the legs of the garment, said legs, at their fronts, having extended flaps adapted to overlie the foot portions, and means for securing said flaps in upturned positions to the fronts of the egs.

6. A garment of the kind described having attached foot portions with openings at the top of the, foot portions extended approximately half-way around the legs and adapting the foot portions, when folded, to be turned up so that the feet can project through the leg of the garment, buttons on the backs of the legs and button holesin the front portions of the soles of the foot portions engageable with said buttons to secure the foot portions when folded in upturned position at the backs of the legs, said le S, at their fronts, having extended flaps a apted to overlie the foot portions, buttons on the fronts of the legs, and button holes in said flaps enga eable with the front buttons to hold said aps in upturned positions. In testimony whereof l afiix my si nature.
