The child is now covered with said apron portion and the Zipper closed; the hands of the child lying within the roomy bodice I5, are accessible when necessary through the slits 24. The free end of the belt I9 at the side entrance to tube 28, is passed through said tube to extend out therefrom near the zipper line. Likewise, the free end of the other belt I9, which is at the side entrance to tube 29, is passed thereto to extend out therefrom near the Zipper line. Such free ends of the respective belts I9, are then tied into a bow 30 for instance, after being drawn, so that bodice I5, snugly encompasses the childs Waistline, permitting the child to turn in the garment about the line of its length, but not to any appreciable extent along said line.
