hat and is further adjustable and fits snugly over is in nowise impaired but improved. The finished desired color or combination of colors, and the parts making up the structure are so designed and related as to provide adjustability throughout the garment. Thus the coat provides a single garment of varying sizes and it is only necessary to make several sizes of garments to fit persons in the various size ranges and due to this standardization, the cost per garment is appreciably reduced.

The garment or raincoat I is formed of a number of sections or pieces of materials so combined as to provide a coat of varying sizes which allows adjustment in the bust, sleeves, skirt and around the neck. As will be clear from the drawings, the disclosed embodiment comprises front panels or sections 3, 3, in eachof which is inserted a side gusset 4 extending and suspended from the shoulder to the top of the hip line T sewed by a French or feld seam, and a pocket 5 secured to and supported from the gusset and provided with a slide fastener 6. The gored waistline adds style to the garment'and avoids an appearance of bulkiness. The sleeves I are of the raglan type with a top seam 'l and arm holes formed in the adjacent portions of the front panels 3, 3 and back panel 8 and curved in such a way as to give additional width across the back. Also, the cuts in the bust, sides and top of the sleeves are so curved and related as to give additional width when and where necessary, although the garment at all times avoids the appearance of bulkiness. To give additional adjustment, the seam 9 between the body'of the garment and collar is preferably shirred as at Ill, in Fig. 4, as by means of an elastic insert or tape. This shirring is arranged merely over the shoulders and therebetween is provided a box plait ll.

Each sleeve I is made of a size suficient to receive a sleeve of a heavy winter coat. However, provision is made as in Fig. 3 to reduce the size of the sleeve without in any way detracting from its appearance. This is accomplished by means of a plait H with the complementary parts of a slide fastener l3 sewed to the edges of the plait as by means of tape or the like and extending from the cuff I5 to approximately the elbow.

- fastener is attached are preferably of double thickness, with the same additionally reinforced to prevent pulling out or tearing,

An embodiment of the head covering 2 is shown in Figs. '7 and 8 of the drawings. It comprises a substantially circular section II, an arcuate portion l8 and pendant ends or projections l9, I9 connected to the circular section and arcuate portion and adapted to be wrapped about the neck of the wearer, and if desired, tied into a bow. The extreme end 20 of each projection is preferably doubled or formed of two thicknesses to add strength.

In order to add additional strength to the garment, I preferably provide double stitched flat or feld seams and thereby avoid the possibility of ripping or tearing. I also provide reinforced stitching of the hem for the same purpose. If desired, the garment may be provided with a belt 2| having a suitable buckle or connecting means 22;

From. the above description and the disclosure in the drawings, it will be apparent that the invention-comprehends a novel raincoat and head coverings, as well as a novel material and method of fabrication which permits a wide adjustment throughout.

Having thus disclosed the invention, I claim:

1 A raincoat adapted to form fit to varying sizes over street attire generally worn in difierent seasons and climates comprising a body covering portion,-raglan type sleeves and a collar, the

upper part of each of said sleeves having a portion extending to said collar, securing means for securing said sleeve portion to said collar located between said sleeve portion and collar and extending over the shoulder, and means for adjusting said collar and upper sleeve part located along the said securing means.
