Dec. 3 2 1,521,228 s. CLAMAGE THREE-PART GARMENT FOR WOMEN AND GIRLS Filed Sept. 13. 1925.

Patented Dec. 3Q, 1924.

Application filed September 13, 1523. Serial l lo. 6 5a To all whom. it may concern:

Be it known that l, SOPHIA OLAMAGE, a citizen of theUnited States, and a resident of Chicago, in the county otCook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Three-Part Garment for Vi onien and Girls, of which the following, when taken in connection with the drawing accompanying and forming a part hereof, is a specification.

This invention relates to a garment designed to be worn by women and girls cnga- 'edin and about house work, and which will permit the wearer to go to the market, or other short distances from the house, without-removingany part of the garment, by the addition to the part or parts worn in the house of an additional part.

Among the objects of the invention are to obtain an apron having pockets therein, a protector to be worn with said apron, to protect the front of the apron from being soiled or dirtied, while at the same time access may be had to the pockets of the apron. An additional object is to obtain an apron provided with pockets and a skirt which may be worn with said apron, and when so worn the portion of said apron covered by said skirt serves as a petticoat, and at the same time access may be had to said pocket. And a further object is to ob tain a three part garment having pockets in one part thereof, all of which may be worn simultaneously, and access may at all times be had to said pockets. An additional object is to obtain a three part garment which maybe worn as an apron; as an apron and protector; and as an outdoor garment or dress, with a part of the apron having the appearance of the waist to the skirt, and the remainder of the apron serving as a petticoat to the skirt.

In the drawing referred to Fig. 1 is a front elevation of an apron forming a part oi the invention, with a protector, also forming a part of the invention, indicated in place thereon, by broken lines.

Fig. 2 is a front of'the apron part of the garment, with the skirt part or member in place thereon.

Fig. 3 is a front elevation of the upper portion of a skirt part of the garment.

Fig. i is a rear elevation of a portion of the apron part of the garment.

Fig. 5 is a front elevation of the protector part of the garment.

LZLZZd it ii. i

Fig. 6 is a vertical section, on an enlarged scale, on line (36 of Fig. 2,;viewed in-the direction indicated by arrows, illustrating the manner in which access is had to a pocket in the apron part of the garment when the skirt part and the apron part are both being worn.

And l ig. T is an GlGVtlillO11,0ll an enlarged scale, oi a belt which is preferably worn with the garment when the skirt part and the apron part are joined.

reference character applied to designate a given part indicates said part throughout the several figures of the drawing wherever the same appears.

1 represents an apron, provided wvith sleeves, 2, 2, with miller 3, and pockets 4, i. 5, 5, espectively re} r nt flaps which are secured at the upper edges thereof, as at 6, 5), to the upper edges of the front part of the pockets 4:, 4;. 7, 7, 8, 8, and 9, 9, respectively represent buttons on apron 1. 10, 10, represent trinnning preferably placed on the apron for purposes of ornamentation,

and are illustrated as extending from buttons T, 'Z, to the waist line of skirt 11, and are covered at their lower ends by belt 12, when skirt 11 is assembled on apron 1, and a dress onset is desired. 13, 13, Fig. 8, represent button holes, by means of which, when buttons 9, 9, are used, for attaching skirt 11 in place on apron l, the upper end the skirt is secured in place on the apron. It will be observed, by Fig. i, that buttons 9, 9, extend entirely around the apron. 1 1%. respectively represent slits in skirt 11, which are protected from tear and made sightly in appearance by hemming or braiding 15, 15. Slits 14, let, respectively rogistar with the openings to pockets 4, i,

when the skirt is secured on the apron as last above described; and the flaps 5, 5, are at said time drawn through said slits. lVhen so drawn through the slits said flaps have the appearance of flaps to pockets in the skirt; while, in fact access to pockets 4:, 4, on the apron 1, is to be had through said slits 14;, 14:. 16, Fig. 5, represents the protector part or member of the garment, and is provided with button holes 13, 13, and 13 .3 and with slits 1d, 14:". Protector 16 is secured on the apron 1, by engaging button holes 13*, 13", with buttons 8, 8; and the button holes 18 13 with buttons 9, 9, or with some thereof. The slits 14 14, are provided with hems or bindings 15, 15.

l G t) The protector 16 may be secured on the apron 1, in the manner last described when skirt 11 is also secured thereon; but is usually secured on said apron 1 when said skirt is not secured in place, as is indicated by the broken lines16, 16, Fig. 1; At all pearance that said flaps pertain to pockets in said protector; and at the same time to afford access to pockets 4, 4, in the apron.

It will be observed that while I illustrate and describe buttons and co-acting button holes for attaching two-or three parts of the garment together, I do not desire to limit myself to that particular way of attaching them, as it is well known that snap fasteners, hooks and'eyes, and short pieces of braid or narrow ribbon are commonly used means for fastening together a of Womens apparel.

I claim: i

1. In a garment, an apron provided wit pockets, and flaps on the i'ront'walls of said pockets, in combination with a protector and means to attach said protector to said apron in a' determined relation, said protector provided with slits arranged to register with the plurality of articles 2. In a three part garment, an apron pro- Vided with pockets and flaps on the front walls oi said pockets, in combination with a protector provided with slits and a skirt also provided with slits, means to attach said protector and skirt to said apron in determined relation, and arranged so thatsaid slits register with the openings to said pockets, and said flaps may be drawn through said slits to permit access to said pockets. V

3. A three part garment for women comprising an apron, a protector and a skirt, all constructed so that said apron; may be worn singly and maybe worn in combination with said protector, in combination with said skirt, and in combination with said protector and skirt, pockets in said apron and means whereby access may be had to said pockets through the remainder of the parts or" said three part garment, when said apron is worn in combination with said remaining parts, as recited.
