UNITED STATES MAUDE SINCLAIR GEORGE, OF ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI.
Application filed December 21, 1925.
The present invention is a garment of the type commonly known in the trade as baby pants.
The object of the present invention is It is also the object of the invention toconstruct baby pants, as above mentioned, of an impervious inner material, and an independent pervious cloth cover, whereby the impervious material is provided with ventilating openings which are covered by the pervious cover, the inner material and the outer material bein maintained in position relative to each ot ier.
With these and other objects and features in view the invention further resides in sundry details of construction, combination and arrangement of elements which will hereinafter appear from the following detailed description and from the appended claims.
In the drawings which illustrate the pro ferred embodiments of the invention, as at present devised:
Fig. 1 is a face view of one embodiment of the garment with portions broken away to illustrate its construction;
Fig. 2 is a fragmentary sectional view taken substantially on line 2-2 of Fig. 1;
Fig. 3 is a sectional view taken substantially on line 33 of Fig. 2;
Fig. 4 is a face view of another embodiment of the invention with parts broken away to illustrate its detail construction;
Fig. 5 is a vertical sectional view taken substantially on line 5-4) of Fig. 4;
Fig. 6 is a fragmentary detail view taken substantially on line 66 of Fig. 4, and
looking in the direction of the arrows.
Referring in detail to Figs. 1 to 3, inclusive, the baby pants comprise an outer cloth cover 10 and an inner impervious lining 11 of sheet rubber or other suitable material, the cover 10 and the lining 11 are each cut to lie coextensively to each other, and each comprise a front portion fl and a, and a back portion 5 and 7/, respectively. These front and back portions may be integral pieces of material, or may be made of separate sections suitably joined together at their crotch portion, so as to form the seat of the garment, the upper edge of Serial No. 76,722.
the front portion of the linin 0!, however, terminates at a point below t e upper ed e of the front portion of the cover a, while the upper edge of the back portion 6' of the lining is coextensive, or substantiall so, with the upper edge of the back portlon b of the cover, it being understood that the upper edges of the front and back portions of the cover are coextensive and form the waist opening 17 of the garmentv The side edges of the portions a, a, b and b are inturned, and brought in close abutting rela tion, as illustrated at 20, Fig. 2, and suitably secured together, such as by stitching, suitable portions of the lining and cover between the sides and the crotch portion being left unstitched to form suitable leg openings 12. The leg openings are normally contracted by an elastic band 13 disposed on the outer face of the cover at the marginal edge portions of the openings 12, and are maintained in position in a hem or casing provided by a double row of stitching 14 on opposite sides of the elastic connected by cross cords 15, which overlie the elastic 13. The stitching 14 penetrates the cover 10 and the lining 11 and maintains the-two permanently in position. The upper edge of the lining a, which terminates below the upper edge of the cover, is secured to the cover at a point below its upper edge by suitable means, such as the stitching 16. The waist opening 17 is normally contracted by an elastic 18 held in position in the same mannor as is the elastic 13 of the leg openin s, and the stitching 15 thereof penetrates t 1e cover as well as the lining 7), whereby the lining at the waist band is maintained in position.
From. the above it will be seen that baby pants constructed in accordance with the above have the appearance of full-cut cloth drawers, having a ventilated front side section produced by terminating the upper edge of the lining below the waist band, which ventilating opening is covered by the cloth cover.
The cloth cover may be of light net-like material, dimity, lawn, voile, or the like.
In Figs. 4 to (S, inclusive, another embodiment of the invention is shown which is in all respects the same as the form of baby pants shown in Figs. 1 to 3, inclusive, except that the lining 11" is not secured to the cover 1O at the leg openings or along the side edges 20 as shown in Fig. 2. The
side edges of both the lining and the cover are secured together independentlv one of the other. In this embodiment the leg 0 enings 12 of the lining are, contracte by the elastic 15 which is held in position on the lining, the same as the elastic l5 and the embodiment shown in Fig. l. the leg openings of the cover 10, however, are preferably uncontracted and finished off in any desired manner and protrude beyond the leg openings of the lining so that the same will be normally obscured. Thedeg openings of the cover l0 may be contracted independently of the leg openings of the lining, if desired.
In this form of the invention it will be observed that the impervious lining 11 may be withdrawn and separated from the cover 10, as the lining is only secured to the cover at the oints 15* and 16 where the back of the lini g is secured to the upper edge of the cover, and the upper edge of the front portion of the lining is secured to the front portion of the .cover below the upper edge of the cover, the same as in Fig. t.
From the foregoing, it will be observed that baby pants of novel construction have been produced, composed of a linin of imiervious material in the form of fn l pants, and having attached thereto a cover of textile material having the full appearance of under-drawers, with the cover and the lining so constructed as to support each other, with the impervious lining cut away at portions to form ventilated openings articularly in the front of the garment W ere the moisture will not seep out when the wearer is in a reclining position), which openings are covered by the cloth material in such a manner as to complete the garmerit, and without giving visible effects of the ventilating openings, or the impervious lining thereunder.

A unitary baby pants comprising a trunk-like garment of cloth material having waist and leg encircling openings, an independent water-proof lining within said cover and in the form of a trunk-like garment having waist and leg encircling openings, said lining having its back portion coextensive with the back portion of the cover and secured thereto, and its front portion terminating below the waist opening of said cover and secured to said cover.
