UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

ILOBINDA GARDNER, F SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, ABSIGNOB 0F ONE-HALF T0 DANIEL ALEXANDER, 0F BALT LAKE CITY, UTAH.

CHILDS GARHENT.

`Application led November 8, 1929. Serial No. 599,370.

To all whom. it may concern:

Be it known that I, FLoRiNDA GARDNER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Salt Lake City, in the county of Salt Lake and State of Utah, have invented a new useful Childs Garment, of which the following is a s cication.

This invention relates to childrens garments and is particularly directed to the lo general type of garments having a pants section.

It is an object of the invention to provide a garment having a ants section in which is detachably secure a water proof inner section in the region of the crotch; also to provide aconstruction which will not prevent suicient healthful ventilation taking place through the wall of the garment.

A further object is to provide suitable fastening devices on the inner surface of the pants section for the attachment of the water proof section in position within said pants section, and to position such fastening devices at the seams of the garment so that they will not easily rip loose and also `so that a neat outer surface of the garment is maintained.

Various other objects and advantages will be more fully aEparent from the following so description of t e accompanying drawings, which form a part`of this disclosure, and

which 'illustrate a preferred form of embodi? ment of the invention. In the drawin 96 Fig. 1 is an eqvation of a childs garment, of the well known romper st le, in which the pants portion is shown roken away to more clearly illustrate the waterroof section and the means by which it is 40 etachably secured within the pants section of the garment.

Fig. 2 is a detail section on line 2-2 of Fi 1.

ig. 3 is a plan view of the water proof section.

Fig. `4: is an enlarged detail section on line 4-4 of Fig. `1.

Fig. 5 is a detail section on line 5-5 of Fig. 6 is a detail view of the lower portion of a slightly modified form of pants section.

Fig. 7 is a detail section on line 7-7 of Fig. 6.

Figs. 8 and 9 are detail sections similar to Fig. 4, illustrating different modified forms of fastening devices.

Heretofore, water-proof pants-like garments, bandages or diapers of various sorts have been used over childrens undergarments, for the purpose of preventing the soiling of the childrens outer garments, as well as a protection against a soilin of the clothing of adults carrying or hol ing the child. Such garments, in the majorit of instances tightly fit upon the child andy for this reason are very irritating and uncomfortable, and' further as such garments practically cut off all ventilation of the underclothing they are very warm especially in warmer climates and in summer. A further objection to such tight fitting waterproof garments resides in the fact that in applying the garment it may easily be put on so tight as to seriously interfere with the blood circulation of the child.

With the above in mind, the arment of the present invention has been esigned to provide adequate protection al ainst the soiling of the outer clothin w ile at the same time providing for a equate ventilation of the underclothing of the child, the fact -that the water-proof section is supported by the outer garment instead of being directly secured upon the childs body, eliminating any possibility of its being so tight as to cause irritation or other detrimental results.

In the drawings I have illustrated a more or less conventional type of romper but it will be evident that the particular configuration of the garment is quite immaterial in sovfar as the present invention is concerned and that the features to be hereinafter described may be incorporated in various other l5 types of garments, such as coveralls, creepers and the like, or any type of garment havin a ants section.

n igs. 1 to 5 of the drawings the garment has a. pants section 1 having a front 100 wall 2 and a rear wall 3 joined together at their side edges and at the crotch 4, and having leg cuffs 5 and a belt 6. The front wall is formed of two pieces joined together by a vertical medial seam 7, and the rear wall is likewise formed of two pieces joined together by a vertical medial seam 8, the two walls being joined together at the crotch 4, by a crotch seam 9 extending from one leg cuff to the other.

A fastening device, such as a button, 10 is secured on the inner surface of the front wall 2 at the vertical seam 7, and a similar fastening device 11 is secured on the inner surface of the rear wall 3 at the vertical 'seaml 8, other fastening devices 12, or buttons, being provided, each secured to the inner surface of the crotch portion at the crotch seam 9 on opposite sides of the vertical seams.

A waterproof section 14, of polygonal contour, and as shown in Figs. 1 and 3, of lozenge shape is formed with a marginal binding 15 and is provided at each corner with a button hole 16. The buttonholes at .each opposed paii` of corners are arranged in arallelism, the buttonholes at one oppose pair of corners extend at right angles to the buttonholes at the other opposed pair of corners. This water proof section 14 is of considerably less area than the pants section so that it leaves a large uncovered area of the pants through which ventilation occurs in the regular way. It is detachably secured with its long axis extending along the crotch, that is, in the position indicated in Fig. 1 with the button holes 16 engaging the respective buttons 10, 11 and 12.

In Fig. 4 is shown a specific method of attaching the buttons to the garment at the seam, and in this method of securing the button 11a is attached to a piece of tape 17 or other material which is stitched in or-beneath the seam.

In Fig. 8 the button 1l" is attached directly to the seam Without the intervening tape, and in Fig. 9 is illustrated a snap fastening in which one member 19 of the snap is secured to the seam of the pants section 3, and the other member 20 is secured to the waterproof section 14, it being evident that various other specic types of fastening devices well known to those skilled in the art, may be used.

In Figs. 6 and 7 a modified structure is shown in which the crotch seam is eliminated by forming the pants section of two pieces joined by a medial vertical seam extending down the front wall, around the crotch portion and up the back wall. In this instance the fastening devices 12a are each secured at the leg cuff seam.

The securing of the several fastening devices at the seams of the garment is of particular advantage in producing a neat appearing garment and in providi 1g such a firm anchorage for the fasteners as to effectively guard against their pulling loose.

Such garments are usually made of light materials from which fasteners would readily tear loose if the material is not reinforced at the points at which such fasteners are attaclied, and reinforcings of this nature are objectionable as they are readily distinguishable from the outside of the garment. Therefore, by securing the fasteners at the seams of the garment, as the points of greatest strength, I am able to produce a garment in which the fasteners are secure against all usual strains, and which can be made of very thin material and the fasteners so placed as not to affect the exterior finish of the garment. While the structure herein illustrated and described is well adapted to fulfill the objects primarily stated, it is to be understood that I do not wish to limit the invention thereto, for it is susceptible of embodiment in various other forms, all coming within the scope of the following claims. v
