Referring now tame drawings in detail, and

't-e Fig.- 1; here skirt is shewn as carrying tiv'e 'd'i net as at 2!, that is, as ritat eer a r. anunet 2| may be e f an iiglii, ut from-a light Weight 'm-d h'fiee Washable with the reina'iheerei the skirt. The adjunct 21 may be attae'heate the main-tame or the skirt by ed e hing Iififilld all around the adjunct. The ct 2| ma be given appropriate colorations at van-bus 'appropriate points thereover, as by pfimmg; and among the imprintings thereon i n-ay he the representation of a collar 22 apparnnyeuspenemg a cow bell 23. A cord or string 24 is connected at opposite ends to the skirt in i'suehmanner that'with the upper end of said cord anchored to an upper part of the skirt the cord descends for apparent connection to the neck of the ,earlt. and thus. may represent a leader or ieesa e As the arrangement illustrated ey F g. 1 is ii're further shown, the uiabi end of the 24 is connected to a point on a sash-bow 25 suitably attached as by stitching to the belt portion of the skirt. Desirably said point of attachment of the upper end of the cord 24 to the sash-bow is somewhere along the length of normal dependence of the latter between its top and its bottom; and the cord 24 is then desirably of elastic cord. Thus when the sash is lifted by the child wearing the skirt, as when she first sees some friend say on the street, a pull is apparently exerted on the neck of the calf. Simultaneously, a moo is sounded, as the result of imparting a partial inversion to a familiar type of moo-maker indicated at 26 and suitably seof small tinkle bells '23; and from said collar there rises, lying loose across the exterior of the main body of the skirt, a leash 24', here shown as of chain type but it may be in the form of a rubber tube or the like.

The upper end of the leash 24' is secured to a fitment such as shown best at 2'? in Figs. 3 and 4. The main loop of said fitment embraces the neck portion 28 of a noisemaker 29 comprising a rubber squeeze-bulb 3i) and a horn element 3| having in its throat a device for emitting a bark-like sound when the bulb is squeezed. The noise-maker 29 normally is slung, pistol-in-holster fashion, in a tape 3'2 stitchedly secured at its opposite ends as shown best in Fig. 3. The bulb 30 may be squeezed while the device 29 is in place as shown, or may be squeezed 'as a step taken following temporary removal of the device 29 from the tape 32.

Referring to Figs. -12, the skirt 2|] here shown carries, as its decorative adjunct, a permanently attached applique 33 for providing the entirety of the body of the calf except for the temporarily to be attached and relatively movable head 34 of the calf. The applique 33 is desirably edge stitched in place, but with a gap left in such stitching as indicated at 35 in Fig. 9. The calf head 34 is rockably mounted on the main portion of the skirt 20 by means of a snap fastener, one of the fastener elements of which, this carried by said main portion of the-skirt, being indicated at 36, and the other of the fastener ele ments of which, this carried by the calf head 34, being indicated at 31. Said 'head, as shown in Fig. 8, may well be made of two plies of the felt or the like used for the applique 33, with rigidly interposed between and secured within the same a shaped strip member 38 of plastic or the like. The horn-like upper end portion of said member 38 which projects beyond the calf head 34 is adapted for coaction stop-fashion relative to the edge stitching'portion 39; and said end portion of the member 38 maybe arranged to be yieldingly urged against said edge stitching 39, by connecting the hook element of an ordinary hook and eye couple to the eye element of said couple. Said eye element, stitched in place, is indicated at 40, and said hook element is attached to an end of an elastic cord 4|, with 4 the other end 01' said cord attached to the member 38 as at 42.

The waist band of the skirt 20 may be arranged as shown in Fig. 6 to allow easy slipthrough passage along a part of the length thereof, of a part of the length of a pull-cord 43. The upper end of the pull-cord 43 terminates in an exposed tassel 44; and the pull-cord depends below the waist band down inside the skirt and then passes forwardly through a grommeted hole 45 for upward passage therebeyond up to the member 38 for connection thereto as shown.

a rocker frame 49 carrying a moo-maker 5B of the well-known cylindrical type which when resting with its axis horizontal is silent but which when rotated through about 90 emits its moo. The said rocker frame and the said moo-maker are housed in a plastic or other suitable light weight but fairly stiff walled container 5|, with the rocker frame journalled at opposite sides in the container as indicated; a retractile coil spring 52 being employed as shown for normally maintaining the moo-maker with its axis horizontal, and the container resting by its own weight in an open topped interior pocket 53 built in relative to the skirt as shown best in Fig. 11, said pocket having a bottom wall 53 conforming in outline to the external cross-section of the container. At 54 is indicated a pocketed weight member for giving even pull-down to the skirt.

Referring to Figs. 13-17, the skirt 20 here shown carries, as its decorative adjunct, a permanently attached applique 55 for providing the entirety of the body of the Scottie except for a relatively movable tail. Said tail is in the form of small rubber sac 56 having a neck portion 5'! tightly attachable to a cavitated plug-projection 58 from a shaped piece 53 of plastic or the like and suitably secured in place between the applique 55 and the main body of the skirt. As indicated, a chain 24" like that shown in and described in connection with Fig. 2 may be present. A noise-maker like the noise-maker 29 is indicated at 38, and for being normally supported by a strap 32 corresponding to the strap 32. Here, however, there is branched oif from the squeeze-bulb of the noise-maker Bil a rubber tube 62, and the lower end of this tube opens into the hollow tail provided by the rubber sac 53. Thus, on squeezing said bulb, the dogs tail rises to the erectness indicated in dot and dash lines in Fig. 14, and simultaneously the barking sound is emitted.

Referring finally to Fig. 18, here the skirt 20 is shown as having its decorative adjunct in the form of a cavitated decorative addition 63 representative of a dolls head, said head being shelllike so that if desired the noise-maker, as one to sound like an infant crying, may be housed in the cavitation behind the dolls head 33. Such noisemaker may be arranged to be operated pursuant to the invention, at the will of the childwearing the garment, as in any of the ways already explained or in any analogous way. To obtain an accompanying exhibition of life from the dolls head, there may be included in the decorative adjunct incorporating said head a naturally relatively movable part, as a similitude of the forward portion of a peak bonnet such as indicated at 64,

and mounted for operation and operable pursuant to the principles of the invention as already explained.

It is to be understood that this arrangement may be provided for garments of any size to be worn by children of all ages.

While we have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of our invention, it is to be understood that we do not limit ourselves to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:
