COMBINATION aomrnn nnrssl Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Feb. *1, 1922.

Application filed May 26, 1920. Serial No, 384,288.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in childrens garments and -more particularly to a combination romperdress, and the primary object of the invention is to rovide a device of this character which wi 1 allow for ready interchangeability.

A further object of the invention resides in providing a romper to which may be quickly and readily applied a dress, either by buttoning in place or slipping the same thereover. V

Still another object oft-he invention resides in providing peg-top bloomers onthe romper having pockets therein, the pe -pool:- et-s being adapted for projection through slip portions in the skirt.

A still further object resides in Providing an article of the type mentioned which is simple in construction, facture, and one which practicable and useful.

- With these and other objects in view my invention consists in the novel features of,

construction, combination and arrangement of parts as willbe hereinafter referred to and more particularly pointed out in the specification and drawings.

In the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this application Figure 1 is a perspective view, partly in section, showing'the preferred form of my invention; Figure 2 is a persp rearof the romper with the skirt portion removed;

Figure 3 is a similar view of the skirt removed from the garment;

Figure 4 is a transverse sectional view through the complete romper dress, illustrating clearly the projection of the peg-pockets through the skirt of the dress and the application of the belt to the garment;

Figure 5 is a perspective view illustrating a slightly modified form of the invention;

Figure 6 is a similar view with parts broken away to illustrate clearly the application of the skirt portion to the garment.

inexpensive to manuwill be extremely g ers, when tive vlew showing the p0 manner.

Figure 7 is a perspective View of the romper portion of thegarment with parts broken away 'and Figure 8 1s perspective view of the skirt or' dress portion of this form of the garment removed.

In describing the invention, I shall refer to the drawings in which similar reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which 1 designates a garment for children known generally 'tothe commercial world as a romper, the same having an upper or waist section 2 and a lower or bloomer portion 3. The waist and bloomer portions of the garment, are, as usual, in one piece, and the same may be of simple or fancy design, as

desired; As shown in Figs. 1 and 2, the

waist section opens in the front and the bloomer portion opens in the rear, but this phase of the structure'of the garment is more or less immaterial.

The bloomer portion 3 of the garment is widened at the top to form what are known as peg-top bloomers, these peg portions being designated as 4 and formed therein are the pockets 5.

Secured to the waistlinertion of the rment at regular interva s therearound are the buttons 6 by means of which a skirt or dress 7 may be applied. to the garment, when desired. This" ress may be of an design provided at its upper portion wit a band 8 in which are provided the button holes 9. The dress is also provided at its sides with slits 10 through which may be projected the peg portions 4 of the bloomthe dress is applied to the gar ment, as clearly shown in Fig. l of the drawings.

Secured rtion 2 and in the rear central ortion of the latter is a belt 11. This elt is adapted to be buttoned in the front and covers the buttons 6. Thus, when the dress at its upper edge to thehwaist I '7 is applied to the garment and the belt 11 properly buttoned in place the means for securing soured from view and the garment looks as- In Figs a slightly modified form of the invention, wherein a set of rompers 12 having a waist 5 to 8 inclusive, I have shown the dress to the garment is obportion 13 and bloomers 14: is provided. As shown herein, the waist portion 13 is slightly different in design from that illustrated over the romper, the suspender portions 21 resting on the shoulders of the wearer so that the waist-band 20 of the dress will cover the belt 18, giving the effect of a onepiece garment, as illustrated in Fig. 5. This dress 19 is also provided with slits 22 at its sides through which project the peg portions 15 of the bloomers, so that the pockets 16 are in position to be readily engaged by the hands of the child wearing the garment.

1 From the foregoing it will be seen that I have provided a combination romper dress which Is extremely simple in construction and one which will be very practicable in use. With 1 a garment of this character, mothers and nurses will not be confronted with the difiiculties and troubles nowexperienced. in constantly changing childrens clothing. .A child may be allowed to play in therompers and without the necessity of changing the garment, the dress may be quickly and readily applied and the child given the appearance of having an entirely fresh and clean garment.

What I claim is:

1. A garmentof the class described comprising a-romper, the bloomer portions of which are pegged to provide upper projecting portions, said latter portions being provided with pockets, and a dress removably applied to the romper and provided with side slits therein for the projection therethrough of the peg portions of the bloomers.

2. A garment of the class described comprising a romper, the bloomer portions of which are pegged to provide upper projecting portions, saidlatter portions being provided with pockets, buttons secured to the waist line of said rom er, a dress having button holes engaged with said buttons and provided with side slits for the projection therethrough of the pegged portions of the bloomers, and a belt secured intermediate of its ends to the rear of the romper and adapted tocover said buttons to obscure the same from view.

. In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
