May 20, 1941. J. BERGER COMBINED SHAWL AND HOOD Filed March s, 1940 INVENTOR JUL /U$ BEEGER BY MTTQRNEYs Patented May 20, 1941 UNITED STATES COMBINED SHAW-L AND HOOD Julius Berger, Irvington, N. J.

Application March 8, 1940, Serial No. 322,889

4 Claims.

My present invention relates to an infants garment and more particularly to a combined shawl and hood.

The present invention aims to devise a garment of the general character indicated, which is simple in construction, easy and economical to fabricate and assemble and admirably adapted to perform the intended functions as hereinafter expressed.

In the accompanying specification, I shall describe, and in the annexed drawing show, an illustrative embodiment of the combined shawl and hood of the present invention. It is, however, to be clearly understood that I do not wish to be limited to the exact details of construction herein shown and described for purposes of illustration only inasmuch as changes may be made therein without the exercise of invention and within the scope of the claims hereto appended.

In the accompanying drawing,

Fig. 1 is a perspective View showing the manner in which the combined shawl and hood of the present invention is put to use in covering the head and body of an infant;

Fig. 2 is a plan view of the aforesaid illustrative embodiment of the present invention shown in a completely open and fiat condition; and

Fig. 3 is an enlarged vertical sectional view taken along line 3-3 of Fig. 2.

Referring now more in detail to the aforesaid til illustrative embodiment of the present invention and with particular reference to the drawing illustrating the same, the numeral 5 generally designates a shawl which includes a main body portion 6, preferably of square shape and made preferably of knitted or woven material.

The edges of the main body portion 6 may be protected against ravelling or fraying by any desired finishing, but I have here shown such edges to be provided with a ribbon binding 7, secured to the body portion by continuous stitching 8. Superimposed on an area 9, adjacent the corners in of the body portion 6 is a triangular shaped auxiliary portion ll made of the same material as the body portion 6 and which, in cooperation with the area 9 over which it is superimposed, is adapted, as will hereinafter be more fully understood, to present a hood l2 to protect the head of an infant, as shown in Fig. 1 of the drawing.

The two edges of the auxiliary portion ll, coinciding with the side edges of the area 9, are fastened to the body portion 6 beneath the ribbon binding 1, and the third edge, which is free so as to permit insertion of the infants head within the hood, is finished with a ribbon binding I3 stitched through as at I4.

The garment is completed by fixing to the upper side edges thereof, on a line with the lower free edge of the auxiliary portion I I, a pair of tie strings or ribbons I5.

This completes the description of the aforesaid illustrative embodiment of the present invention and the mode of use thereof may be briefly summarized as follows: 7

With the garment lying open and fiat, as shown in Fig. 2 of the drawing, the infant is laid upon the body portion 6 and its head is inserted via the free edge of the auxiliary portion l I into the space intermediate the auxiliary portion II and the area 9 of the main portion 6 over which the auxiliary portion is superimposed and the tie strings l5 are then drawn about the neck of the infant and joined together beneath the infants chin, as can be seen from Fig. 1 of the drawing. Joining the tie strings [5 in this manner causes the hood portion I2 to assume and maintain its proper shape. The remaining portion of the garment can then be wrapped about the infants body in any desired fashion, such as is shown in Fig. 1 of the drawing, after which any desired fastening means, such as a safety pin, can be applied to retain the shawl portion in a proper position about the body of the infant.

This completes the description of the mode of use of the aforesaid illustrative embodiment of the present invention.

It will be seen from all of the foregoing that I have presented an infants garment in the form of a combined shawl and hood, which is simple in construction, easy and economical to fabricate and assemble and admirably adapted to perform the functions as hereinbefore set forth.

Other objects and advantages of the garment of the present invention will readily occur to those skilled in the art to which the present invention relates.

What I claim as my invention is:

1. A combined hood and shawl comprising a main body portion adapted to be wrapped about the body of an infant and an auxiliary portion superimposed upon a limited area of said main body portion and adapted to cooperate therewith to present a hood for the head of an infant, all of the edges of said auxiliary portion except one coinciding with and being aifixed to the adjacent edges of said main body portion, the free edge of said auxiliary portion permitting insertion of the infants head intermediate said auxiliary portion the edges of said auxiliary portion coinciding with and being affixed to the adjacent edges of said main body portion, the third edge of said auxiliary portion being free to permit insertion of the infants head intermediate said auxiliary portion and the area of said main body portion over which said auxiliary portion is superimposed.

3. A combined hood and shawl comprising a square shaped main body portion adapted to be wrapped about the body of an infant, and a triangular shaped auxiliary portion superimposed upon a similarly shaped area of said main body portion and adapted to cooperate therewith to present a hood for the head of the infant, and means associated with the garment to retain the hood in proper shape when in use.

4. A combined hood and shawl comprising a square shaped main body portion adapted to be wrapped about the body of an infant, and a triangular shaped auzn'liary portion superimposed upon a similarly shaped area of said main body portion and adapted to cooperate therewith to present a hood for the head of the infant, two of the edges of said auxiliary portion coinciding with and being affixed to the adjacent edges of said main body portion, the third edge of said auxiliary portion being free to permit insertion of the infants head intermediate said auxiliary portion and the area of said main body portion over which said auxiliary portion is superimposed, and means associated with the garment to retain the hood in proper shape when in use.
