' 4 adjusted. to fit the human figure under widely varying conditions as to waist and hipmeasurements. t. V
One feature of the invention relates particularly to the provision of an inside draw -15 or adjustable belt suitably arranged atthe top of the trousers portion of the garment whereby the same may be adjustably drawn into contact with the. body of the wearer and is readily adjustable to different waist measurements of individual wearers.
Another feature relates'to the-provision of a flap or .front cover portion attached to the leg portion of the: trousers at the lower portion thereof and attached tothe oppos te leg portion from the crotch upwardly along the open .front of thepy ama trousers an so constructed that it may be folded across the body of the wearer and attached at or near, the waist or belt line serving thereby to the appearance of being merely a portion of the 'pyj ama' trousers. I
5 Another feature is to connect thev flap referred to, or make it integral with the neglige blouse at its top portion whereby when the blouse is closed the flap covers the front opening in the trousers and produces together with the blouse the general effect of a complete neglige garment which however is in its lower portion split to form pyjama trousers. It is also an object of the invention to provide a garment which may be used, without the blouseportion, as a pair of pyjama trousers in which the flap portion covers the front opening of the trousers and is attached at the waistline and with which a jacket or other upper garment may be worn.
close the front opening in the trousers and position for wear.
A particular feature ofthe invention is the provision of the adjustable belt construction combined with the flap whereby garments may be produced in quantity and readily fitted to'persons of different sizes and conformations without any substantial change in the garment itself. VJhen the garmentis applied and the belt suitably adjusted as by tieing or by other means the flap is folded across the'body and suitably attached at the belt or waist line by, means of snapfasteners, snap hooks, buttons or similar fastening devices. Such fastening devices on the body portion of thegarment' may be readily moved sothat: a garment may be adjusted toi'it different sized persons by merely shifting the position-of thebutton or other fastening device. The waist size of: the garment is determined, within reasonable limits, by the adjustment of the I belt which may be arranged inside the garment near the waist line or under certain FIPAFTENT IOFFICEFVII. L
circumstances might be externally, applied and of course with the insidebelt a separate outside belt could be used if found desirable.

Figure 1 shows a View of thegarment, as 2 applied to the'liuman figure, in its open posil tion with the belt tied. Y r I p v Figure 2 is a similar view in which the. garment is closed with a flap attached in Figure 3 is a view similar-to Figure 1 showing the flap held up across the body with the blouse and upper. portion of the garment held in open position and Figure f is a view showing the garment separately 3 with the flap extending outwardly and also showing how the --flap isattached tofthe upper and lower portions'of the garment.
In thedrawings the lower orotrousers portion of the garment is indicated generally at 1 having lower leg portions 2 and a flap portionv 3 and a neglig-e blouse i whichis attached to the trousers as indicated at 5. As indicated at 6 there is a belt or cord inserted within acasing. arranged on. the
portion to which the flap is attached. By
this construction the draw belt or cord or similar adjusting means may be employed to draw the garment into contact with the body of the wearer at the waistline and such construction admits of considerable latitude of adjustment to persons of different sizes.
The blouse portion of the garment may be attached to the trousers portion by sewing or may be integral therewith dependent upon the size and shape of the garment and upon the manner in which the same is to be cut from the material of which it is made.
The flap portion is attached to one side of the front openingof the pyjama trousers from the bottom of the opening to the top of the trousers and extending upwardly merging into the side portion of the. blouse. The flap is also attached to the trousers from the lowest portion of the front opening to the crotch portion.
Below the crotch the edge of the flap is attached to the inner seam of the opposite pyjama leg portion to substantially the bottom' of the garment. This construction admits of the folding of the upper portion of the flap across the front of the body and attaching it to the belt or waist line portion. thereof and the lower portion of the flap will hang down in proper position over the corresponding trousers leg and give the general appearance of a complete pair of pyjama trousers. The upper portion of the flap also serves effectively to cover the front opening in the pyjama trousers so that the necessity for providing fastening means along this portion of the garment is eliininated although such fastening means may be provided if found desirable. The outer free edge of the flap is made continuous in itsupward portion with thefree edge of the blouseso that when the blouse is closed by folding'its lower portions together the flap will be carried therewith and folded across the front of the wearer.
1 The invention is not confined to a garment in which the blouse and trousers are combined into one piece. It will be apparent from the above description and from an in spection of the drawings that the blouse por- "tion of the garment illustrated may be omitted and the flap attached as indicated above,
to the trousers portion of a suit of pyjamas the wearer it may be attached at or near the belt line to the opposed portion of the top of the trousers and will drop downwardly over the leg portion producing a pleasing appearance and also serving asa cover or closure member for the upper open front portion of the pyjama trousers.
With a construction of the character just described, any preferred jacket or blouse may be worn as a separate garment. The pyjamas however serve to produce the desired pleasing effect, and also being constructed in such a manner that they may be readily adjusted to fit different sized persons within reasonable limits, and the front portion effectively closed and protected by the flap. 7
Having thus fully described my said invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:
1. In a combination garment, a pair of pyjama trousers having an open front, an open front neglig e blouse attached to the upper portion of said trousers, one side of said blouse front having a portion extending downwardly to substantially the bottom of said trousers and having its confined edge attached to one side of the open front of the corresponding trousers leg and caught in I the front seam of the trousers to the crotch,
and attached at the inner seam of the opposite trousers leg from the crotch to the bottom portion of the trousers.
2. In a combination garment, a pair of py ama trousers having an open front, an open frontneglig-e blouse attached to the upper portion of said trousers, one side of said blouse front having a portion extendmg downwardly to substantially the bottom of said trousers and having its confined edge attached to one side of the open frontof the corresponding :trousers leg and caught 1n the front seam of the trousers to the crotch, and attached at the inner seam of the opposite trousers leg from the crotch to the bottom portion of the trousers and a draw belt inserted'in the trousers at the upper portion thereof at the waist line.
In testlmony whereof I afliX my signature.
