nnrn acmnnr, or bonumnns, onto.


Application filed February 10, 1921. Serial No. 444,0!17.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that RUTH AoHILLI a citizen of the United States, residingat lolumbus, in the county of Franklin and State of ()hio, has invented certain new and useful Improvements in Aprons, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to an improved house garment or apron, and has for its object to rovide a rment of this nature which. will be capab e of being comfortably worn, to present a neat and attractive appearance, to thoroughly protect and cover under garments and to be capable of being inexpensively'and easily manufactured an produced.

The invention accordingly consists in the provision of'a garmentof the above character which will be formed to include a combined blouse and skirt portion,- formed from a single piece of material, the said blouse portion being formed to include a back having' centrally disposed overlapping. edges which are adapted to be buttoned or otherwise secured together in order that the garment may be conveniently applied, the skirt portion being formed so as to extend around the front of the skirts of the wearer, and formed to produce a substantially open back portion, the separated edges of the back portion being joined by means of strlngs or other tying devices, the garment thus formed being capable of thoroughly protecting the clothing of the wearer, to be easily and convenientlv applied or removed and to besecurely maintained and held in itsposition of application so that a neat appearance will be produced.

With these and other objects in view, as will appear as the description proceeds, the invention accordingly consists in the novel features of construction, combinations of elements and arrangements of parts, hereinafter to be fully described and pointed out in the appended claim.

In the accompanying drawing, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference denote like and corresponding parts throughout the several views thereof:

Figure 1 is a view showing the application of the garment and lookingtowarol the front thereof.

Figure 2 is a similar view looking toward the rear bf the garment, and,

Figure 3 is an enlarged view in elevation of the rear of the garment.

Referring more particularly to the details of formation of my improved'garment, I provide an apron or house garment 1 which is preferably formed from substantially one piece of material, and includes a strai ht front portion 2 embodying a blouse section and a skirt section 3 and 4 respectivel which may be formed from any suitab e materials and of varying sizes. The blouse section includes a back portion 5, which in this instance is provided with overlapped reinforced edges 6, which extend vertically.

and centrally down the back portion. These edges are preferably separable and are adapted to be secured together by means of buttons or other equivalent fastening devices 7. By this construction the garment may be applied without slipping the same over the head. The blouse 3 is so cut to produce 'a-neck opening 8 of any desired -formation,and likewise sleeves 9; ofsuitable length or design may be formed with;

the garment will be drawn tautly and undue looseness therein eliminated. Also, it will be observed that the wings are extended suficiently high to enable the same to overlap the lower terminating portion 12 of the back 5, and by means of the strings 11, the

portions 12 will be maintained in their protect effect is produced which is very desirable in protecting expensive or fine and delicate under garments. The neatness of the garment as a whole and its application is effected by the location of the strings 11 which act in combination with the wings 10 to enable the garment to be properly drawn about the waist of the wearer so. as to present a smooth and attractive appearance and to avoid the presence of loose and flaring unsecured portions, the strings 11 also serve to securely fasten the terminating portions 12 of the back 5 and thus enable the back of the arment tobe tautly drawn in its applief position. By forming the back so that the same may be readily unbuttoned, convenience is to be obtained in removing or applying the garment, and also a neat appearance is secured around the neck thereof.

What is claimed is:

A slip-on garment comprising integral blouse and skirt ortions, said blouse portion being formed to provide sleeves and a neck opening, said blouse portion being further formed to include a substantially closed back, said back having separable edges, fastening devices for uniting said edges, extensions formed upon said back below the waist of the garment, separable wings rovided in connection with the spaced e ges of said skirt portion and capable of overlapping the extensions, and tying devices disposed at the upper edges of said wings for engagement across the extension and capable of drawing the garment tautly about the waist of the wearer, and to maintain said wings in holding relation with said back extension.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signa ture.
