` applicativa November n, 1931, sei-iai No. 11am The present invention relates to a new and' useful construction for childrens outer-garments having full-length sleeves and it relates more particularly to the construction at the sleeveends of such garments.

An object of the present invention is to construct a childrens outer-garment in such fashion as to permit a pair of mittens or gloves to be readily intimately attached to and detached from the sleeve-ends of such garment without altering or otherwise changing the customary transverse marginal edges of said sleeve-ends.

Another object of the present-invention is to construct a childrens outer-garment vwith readily operable glove-fastening means disposedl at the sleeve-ends thereof adapted to detachably connect a pair of gloves or mittens to said garment sleeve-ends along a juncture line generally coincidental with the normal transverse marginal edges of said sleeves.

Another object of the present invention is to construct a childrens outer garment with 'a readily operable slide fastener circumferentially disposed about each sleeve-end, said slide fasteners being adapted to continuously connect the wrist portions of a pair of gloves or mittens to said sleeve-ends. v

Another object of the present invention is to provide adchildrens outer-garment having full- Vlength sleeyes,, with a pair of gloves, formed integrally with said sleeves along a'small portion of the respective transverse marginal sleeveedges, said gloves being adapted to be tucked into generally stretchable wrist `portions of said sleeves when not in use, leavingv each transverse marginal sleeve-edges in a plane generally perpendicular to the longitudinal sleeve axis, and said gloves being further adapted. when being worn, to be detachably connected to said sleeves along the remaining portions of said transverse sleeve-edges.

With the above and otherobjects in view,

' which will appear more fully from the following detailed description and accompanying drawings. the present invention consists of a childrens outer-garment `including full length sleeves, a row of interlocking scoop-type fasteners circumferentiallydisposed about the transverse marginal edge of each sleeve, a pair of gloves or mittens adapted to be detachably secured to the ends of said sleeve and each pro- (Cl. H)

coincide with the transverse said sleeves. 1

sleeves and a 'pair of gloves permanently ailixed I tol said sleeves Aalong portions of the transverse marginal edges thereof, the wrist portions of marginal edges of I said sleeves being circumferentially stretchable f to accommodate said gloves when the latter are tucked into saidsleeves.

The present invention further consists of other novel features and details of construction which will appear more fully fromv the following detailed description and accompanying drawings. For the purpose of illustrating the invention, there is shown in the accompanying drawings forms thereof -which are at present preferred, since the same have been found in practice to give satisfactory. and reliable results, although it is to be understood that the various instru- (2g mentallties of which the invention consists can be variously arranged and organized and that the invention is not limited to the precise arrangement and organization of the instrumen-- tallties as herein shown and described.

Referring to the drawings in which like reference characters indicate like parts:

Figure 1 represents a front elevational view of a childrens garment constituting one embodiment of the present invention. Figure 2 represents on an enlarged scale a fragmentary sectional view taken on` line 2-2 of Figure 1, looking in the direction of the arrows. Figure 3 represents an 'enlarged fragmentary view of the'rlght hand sleeve extremity of the.,

garment illustrated in Figure 1. Figure 4 represents a fragmentary perspective view showing the manner in which the glove illustrated in Figures lor 3 may be tucked into the wrist portion of the garment sleeve when not being used.

Figure 5 represents an enlarged fragmentary' view of the sleeve extremity of a modified garment having completely detachable gloves.

Figure 6 shows the glove illustrated-in Figure 5 partially connected to the garment sleeve.

According to the present invention, the childrens outer-garment or sweater indicated generally by the numeral 1 may consist of the split bodice portion I having its meeting edges de.

tachably secured together by means of buttons 9, S or the like, the collar ltand the full-length sleeves Il, Ii terminating in the gloves i 2, l2.

The entire garment, including the gloves l2, i2 is preferably constructed fromA a knitted resilient material, although the present invention is not limited to such material, but may comprehend any suitable woven cloth or the like. a

The gloves I2. i2 are preferably detachably securedtothealeeves Il, il insuchfashionas to form direct continuations of said sleeves when attached, and yet to leave the sleeve-edges in their usual transverse relationship when the gloves are not being used. Thus, according to the present invention the marginal sleeve-edges are each preferably disposed in a. plane generally perpendicular to the longitudinal sleeve axis, when the gloves I2, I2 are not being worn. In this fashion, the ohild's hands are unhindered by any unusual construction at the sleeve edges when the gloves are not in use.

The juncture line between the glove I2 and the sleeve II, which also defines the marginal edge of the sleeve, is preferably disposed somewhere in the vicinity of the wearers wrist.

The glove is preferably detachably secured to the transverse marginal sleeve edge Ilby means of an interlocking scoop-type slide fastener.

Thus, a fastener tape I4 bearing a row of any conventional interlocking scoop-type fastener members I5 may be circumferentially sewed to the marginal portion of sleeve edge I3 by the parallel rows of sewn stitches I and I1. A similar fastener tape I8, bearing a row of similar interlocking scoop-type fastener members I9 may be circumferentially sewed to the terminal or vwrist portion of the glove I2 by means of the parallel rows of sewn stitches 2I and 22. These rows of fastener members I5 and I9 are adapted to be connected and disconnected from each other at will, by operating the slide member 23, which may be of any suitable construction.

Juxtaposed snugly meeting strips of cloth 24, which respectively overlap the exterior or outer side of the scoop-type fastener members I5 and I9 may be permanently secured to the fastener tapes I4 and I9, and these strips conceal the metallic fastener members I5 and I9 and thus protect the person and the clothing of the wearer.

An annular strip oi' knitted or woven cloth 29, which completely overlaps the inner side of the slide-operated fastener, may be permanently secured to the marginal sleeve portion I3 through the same row of stitches I9 which joins the fastener tape Il to the sleeve edge, and this strip 26 serves to protect the hands of the wearer from contact with the slide-operated fastener.

The transverse juncture line between the glove and the sleeve-end may be concealed from view when the two are secured together by means of an upturned cuil? 21 formed integrally with, or in continuation of, the wrist portion 20 of the glov'e I2.

As is more particularly illustrated in Figures i, 3 and 4, the slide-operated fastener may be extended around a major portion of what would normally be the sleeve marginal edge, and the gloves I2, I2 are permanently connected to the sleeves II, II along the remainingportion 2l of this marginal edge. The gloves are thus permanently secured to the garment sleeves, and may indeed be formed integrally therewith along this marginal edge portion 28,

The gloves I2 when not being worn may be tucked into the sleeves II, which, being of a resilient or knitted material, is circumferentially or transversely stretchable to accommodate these gloves. Thus, as illustrated in Figure 4, the unused glove may be snugly tucked into the sleeve alongside the wearers wrist and there remain instantly available for future use and not hinder the free movement of the. wearers hands.

In Figures 5 and 6 is shown a garment wherein the slide-operated fastener has been extended completely around the sleeve marginal edge Il,

thus making the glove I2 completely detachable from Iche sleeve II. The fasteners may be provided with the pin and socket guide members 29 and 30 for the purpose of aligning the fasteners yand facilitating the initial connection therebetween. In all other respects, the construction of the modification shown in these two figures is similar to the garment construction illustrated in the preceding figures.

The hereinabove described garment constructions provide a new and useful article of clothing particularly adapted for childrens use. This construction, aside from the many 'other advantages it possesses, affords a simple and effective means for completely confining the hands of the wearer within said garment and protecting them against the elements, and yet permits the handprotecting members to be discarded or rendered inoperative at will, without altering or otherwise` affecting the normal transverse marginal sleeve edge, and without thereafter hindering or ob-y structing the free movements of the wearers hands.

The present invention may be embodied in other specific forms without departing from the spirit'or essential attributes thereof, and it is therefore desired that the present embodiments be considered in all respects as illustrative and not restrictive, referencel being had to the appended claims rather than to the foregoing description to indicate the scope of the invention.
