Inventor Margaret M Carlson By fi mi mn ywlay Em Patented Oct. 11, 1949 UNITED STAT ES OFFICE This invention relates to new and useful improvements and structural refinements in head covering hoods, and the principal object ofthe invention is to provide a device of the character herein described; such as may be conveniently and effectively employed by ladies who are purchasing dresses or the like, andwho, as a preliminary to such purchase, are desirous of trying the dresses on.

It is well' known that dresses are usually tried on before they are purchased by their prospective wearers, and it is equally well known that during such try out procedure the prospective purchaser usually deposits a substantial amount of lipstick and other forms of makeup on the dress while endeavoring to pass the same over her head. Needless to say, the result is usually found to be quite annoying to subsequent prospective purchasers in the event the original purchaser is not satisfied with her choice and, moreover, the value of the dress involved is considerably depreciated.

Furthermore, apart from the foregoing, the prospective purchaser frequently experiences some difficulty in attempting to pass the dress over her head, particularly if it is not of the proper size, so that her makeup as well as her coiffure is often subjected to undue mutilation.

It is, therefore, a further object of the invention to eliminate the disadvantages above outlined by providing a head covering hood which the prospective purchaser may place upon herself preparatory to the trying on of a dress, or the like, and by the use of which the possibility of damaging the dress, the purchasers coiffure or, for that matter, her lipstick or the like, will be completely eliminated.

Another object of the invention is to provide a head covering hood which, being of a transparent character, will appreciably minimize the feeling of seclusion or confinement such as the prospective purchaser may otherwise experience, that is to say, such as the purchaser would, in all probability, experience if the hood were made of opaque material.

An additional object of the invention is to provide a head covering hood which is simple in construction, which may be easily applied to or removed from the head, which is pleasing in appearance, and which will readily lend itself to economical manufacture.

An additional object of the invention is to provide a head covering hood which is otherwise well adapted for the purpose for which it is intended.

With the above more important objects in view 3 Claims. (Cl. 2174) and such'other objects as may become apparent as this'specification proceeds, the invention consists essentially of the arrangement and constructioh of parts as'illustrated' in the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1' is a perspective view of the invention,

showing the samein situ on the head of a'prospective purchaser;

Figure 2 isa developed planview of the sheet of material from which the hood is'formed;

Figure 3 is a fragmentary perspective view of the invention per se, as shown in Figure 1; and

Figure 4 is a perspective view of one of the keeper clips used in the invention.

Referring now to the accompanying drawings in detail, the invention consists of a head covering hood embodying in its construction an elongated sheet of transparent material ll which, in its developed form, is illustrated in Figure 2.

The sheet If is doubled or folded upon itself medially of its length, substantially along the transversely extending fold line l2, so as to provide what may be referred to-as a front panel I3 and a rear panel [4.

The configuration of these two panels is substantially similar, that is to say, they both include what may be called a head portion i5 separated by a relatively restricted portion Hi from a neck portion H, the lateral or side edges l8 and the lower edges I9 of the panels 13, M coinciding with and being adjacent to one another when the hood is folded after fabrication and prior to positioning upon the head.

Portions of the side edges I8 immediately adjacent the fold. line :2 are rigidly secured together by adhesive or by adhesive tape, or the like, as indicated at 20, while the remaining portions of the edges 18, as well as the edges 19 are quite free.

Accordingly, when the invention is placed in use, the hood is simply positioned on the head and around the neck, substantially as shown in Figure 1, and means are employed for retaining the hood in position, said means assuming the form of suitable retaining clips 2! of a resilient character, such as are shown in Figure 4.

These clips are simply placed upon the portions of the edges 18 adjacent the neck of the wearer, and if desired, the panels I3, l4 may be provided at appropriate points with reinforcing tabs (secured by adhesive, or the like) 22, so that the clips 2! may be applied to the tabs, rather than directly to the material of the hood.

It will be apparent that in this manner the hood may, if desired, be employed repeatedly by several prospective purchasers.

Having described the invention, what is claimed I as new is:

1. A head covering hood comprising a sheet of material folded at substantially the transverse center thereof, to form a front and back panel, said panels having smoothly curved upper sides forming a full portion to cover the head of an individual, said panels narrowing at the lower portions of the sides to conform with the neck of an individual, adhesive material on the upper portions of the sides retaining the upper portions of the panels fixed together :at the sides.

2. A head covering hood comprising a sheet of material folded at substantially the transverse center thereof, to form a front and back panel, said panels having smoothly curved upper sides forming a full portion to cover the head of an individual, said panels narrowing at the lower portions of the sides to conform with the neck 80 2,366,037

4 of an individual, adhesive material on the upper portions of the sides retaining the upper portions of the panels fixed together at the sides, and. detachable eclips attached to the lower neck portion of the sides of the panels.

3. A head covering hood comprising a sheet of material folded at substantially the transverse center thereof, to form a front and back panel, said panel having smoothly curved upper sides forming a full portion to cover the head of an individual, said panels narrowing at the lower portions of the sides to conform with the neck of an individual, adhesive material on the upper portions of the sides retaining the upper portions of the panels fixed together at the sides, detachable clips attached to the lower neck portion of the sides of the panels, and air holes in said front panel.

MARGARET V. CARLSON.
