appmmon mea February 5,1927. serrata. 166,194. f

The presentinvention is concerned with t improvements in 'childrens' overcoats, ar-

ticularly with the provision of a coat w ich may be' conveniently lengthened without any need for sewing, and by the simple expedlents of ripping vout a -few tacks, unfolding 4the hem and pressing the coat.

A circumstance which isa material factor in the manufacture and saleA of childrensovercoats, is the fact that growing children soon outgrow the coat, and the coat must 'eitheri be lengthened or discarded, in consequence, most purchasers hesitate to Ainvest in an expensive overcoat for a child due to the comparatively short .life of the coat.

The present invention overcomes this diiliculty b the provision of a coat which may v fully understood from the following descriptionin connection with the accompan ing` drawings, wherein-'- ig. 1 -s a fra entary view showing the inside of a chil s overcoatfand with arts broken away and in section'for the sa e of clear'ness. -Figw2fis anv enlarged longitudinal sectional view on the line 2-2 of Fig. A1.

, Fi 3 isfa view similar to Fig. 2, but 4o showing'the tacks removed and the hem let down. A L 4 Fig. 4 is a fragmentary view of the inside of the coat showing the/position of the parts during the lengthening ofthe coat. l Fi 5 is a transverse sectional view on the line 5-5of Fig.` 1.

In the drawings I have used the reference numeral 10 to designate the body portion of a coat, the lower e of which is turned up- Ito define a vhem portion 1 1,- and the si e edges of which are turned inwardly to define ilaps12 lending a finishing appearance to the edge of the to be a plied. The flap rtion 12 is also provide g 'turned hem 13 overlying the adjacent hem 11. Y

The lining of the coat designated at 14 is connected at oneed e to the inwardl turned' Hap as by a line o stitching 15. his line terminates just short of the lower edge of ythe body 10 and is turned upwardly and inwardly to define a hem 16,l the edge of which is secured-to the edge of. the hem 11 by a line `lof stitching 17.

The upwardly turned and connected body ihem 11 and lining hem 16 are, prevented from droppin gravitationally downwardly by a few tac 18 connecting the lining, body, and upper connected ed es of. the two hems. The lower edge 19 of t e folded linv ing and the lower edge 20 of the folded flap 12 may also be conveniently retained against movement away from the body of the coat by the use of a tack or two, such as the tacks 21. 1

view of the fact that the hem 16 .is slightly shorter than the hem 11, 'it will be evident that when the coat is lengthened, there will still be an edge of the body projecting below an ed e of the lining. Lengthenm the connected hems16 and 17 downwardly from the positionof Fig. 2 to the position of Fig. 3- and pressing the coat; 1t-being altogether unnecessary that any sewing1 be' done to accomplish the alteration.` The em 13 of the a 12 will also fold outwardly, producing` a nished corner, at the lower end of the flap. The coat presents a neat and attractive appearance both prior to and subsequent to the lengthening operation, since at all times the seams 'connecting the coat apd lining are concealed. A Obviously a similar arrangement might be used in connection with the sleeve of the lcoat if desiredand various changes and alterations might be made in the general form and arrangement of the arts described without departin from t einvention. Hence I do not. wish to limit myself to the details set forth, but shall' consider myself at liberty to make s uch changes and alterations as fairly fall within the spirit and scope ofthe appended claim. coat where the buttons and buttonholes are v.

with an upwar y and inwardly is accomplis ed merely by manually fi ripping out the tracks 18 and 21, folding A cliilds overcout including a, body and u lining, efncli formed with inwardly and upwardly turned concealed helns arranged in .the space between the body and lining have ing their upper edges secured together, 'said hems beine unconnected to the body oi' 1inn; save lirough readily manually removab e tucks passed through the connected upypei1 edges of the heme and through the lin- 10 SAMUEL GREENBERG.
