sin onirlanno'oivmma'rion GARMENT mieillenarft, NewfYoi-k NQY. hpiiritihiihhib, 1951,eeaa m;eieee I l (atei's) '3' Claims;

.This inventionrelates to womerisclothing and moreparticularly to a clip bywhich ajsli'p. can'be attached to a brassiere so. that the twojgaiments are supported by the same pair ofshoulde'r straps. Slips are usually provided with their ownstraps, which are usually ribbons or tapes, by which they are supported independently, of the brassiere. According; to the .present invention, .s'mall' loops o'fLr'ibbon or tape arelfsecuredjtolthe slip at the points where, the ends of the shoulder straps are usually attached. Clips are hooked into. these loops, each'aclip being made of apiece of stiff sheet material shaped to a formla w'idelho'ok at the lowerend thereof and an inverted T-slotin the upper end thereof. A brassiere is arranged within the upper portion of the slip and the shoulder ,strapsare threaded through the hooks "and T-slots of respective clips wherebythe slip For a'more complete understanding of the in vention, reference may be hadto thefollowing description thereof and to the drawing, of which--- 7 v t I v Figure 1 Ba partial elevational'view of a composite garment as it is worn v Figure 2 is a front elevation of a clip and the elements attached thereto; Figure 3 is a section on the line 3-3 of Figure 2; and

Figure 4 is a perspective separate view of the elements shown together in Figure 2.

The clip H1, which is best shown in Figure 4, may be stamped out from a sheet or strip of stiif material such as metal, synthetic plastic or the like. If metal is employed, it should be non-corrodible, as aluminum, for example. The clip is generally rectangular in form. At the upperend two marginal arms or extensions l2 have their roots at the respective upper corners of said clip and turn inward toward each other as at id to define an inverted T-slot I6, the cross bar o fthe T lying between said arms and the upper edge of the clip, and the upright of the T between the spaced ends of the arms. Inwardly directed lugs or protuberances I2 extend from the respective ends of the arms I 2 into the transverse portion of the slot 16 to increase the frictional grip on the tape or ribbon passing therethrough. At the lower end of the clip an elongated hook-shaped arm 20 is formed, this hook being rooted at one of the lower corners of the clip, extending horizontally and parallel with the lower edge of'the clip, and then turned up and inward, as at 22,

toj'forrn areentrant end portion to define" "a transverseslot 24' lyingzb'etween the longer portion of the hook-shaped arm on" the one hand,

and the left half of the bottom edge of the clip the clip; and, since the hooked portion is; r eon-,

siderabie lateral extentxthis'ope'ning or entry slot 26 communicates with the main slot 23 ad jaoe'nt the center thereof;

Portions of a conventional slip 30 are shown;

7 the customary ribbons or tapes which are usually attached to serve as shoulder strap ibeing yr-lee placed bysmall loops 32 secured to; the upper margin of the'slips at the points'whe're't'he" ends,

of the shoulder strapsere usually --attached. Clips Ill are employedto attach theslip'to. the

shoulderstr'ap's 36 of a brassiere 38, thestraps usually consisting of ribbons or taDBSJITO this end a clip I0, is hooked through each loop 32, the loop being inserted through the opening'ZE into the slot 24 to lie'fiat onthe transversely extending portion of the hookgzo. The-turned in'extremity 22 of the .hooieprevents accident-alum engagement of the loopjirom the hook; Each clip lfl is then attached-to a shoulder ,36 near the res ective points of attachrnent of the straps to the brassiere the strap being threaded through the hook 20' and the transverse portion of the T-slot I6 for this'purpose, as indicated in Figures 2 and 3. 'I'hisf'secures the slip to the brassiere straps for support by the latter, but it is evident from Figure 2that the straps can easily be disengaged from thejiclips l0, and the latter can be disengaged from the loops 32 to facilitate laundering of the garments.

Various modifications and changes may be made in the form of the clip herein shown and described without departing from the scope of the invention as definedin the following claims.

I claim:

1. A womans garment combination comprising a slip having ribbon loops attached at spaced points on the upper margin thereof, a brassiere having shoulder straps attached thereto, and clips connecting said ribbon loops to said straps, each clip comprising a hat body portion, an arm on said body portion extending substantially parallel with an edge of said body portion and bent adjacent its end towardgsaid body portion to provide reentrant end portion and to form a hook, the reentrant portion of said arm extending back alongside of the main portion of the arm approximately to the median point of said body portion, said main portion of the arm being spaced from said edge of the body portion for approximately half of its length and from the reentrant hookforming portion of the arm for the remainder of its length to provide a slot, said reentrant portion itself being spaced from said lower edge of the body portion of the clip to provide a second or entrance slot which communicates with said first-named slot at a point near the center thereof, a pair of mutually inwardly extending arms on the clip at the opposite edge thereof, said last named arms being spaced from said opposite edge of the clip, and the inwardly directed ends of said arms being spaced from each other to form a T-shaped slot at the opposite edge of the clip, to receive and grip a strap or tape and the slot formed by the hooked-shaped arm being at the lower portion of the clip'and receiving one of said ribbon loops, and one of the brassiere straps passing through both the first-named slot andthe transverse portion of the T-shaped slot.

2 A garment clip for use in attaching a ribbon or tape to a garment strap or the like, said clip comprising'a fiat body portion, an arm on said body portion extending substantially parallel with anedge of said body portion and bent adjacent itsend toward said body portion to' provide a reentrantend portion and to form' a hook, the -reentrant portion of said arm extending back alongside oi the main portion of the arm approximately to the median point of said body portion; said main portionof the arm bein spaced from said edge of'the body portion for approximately half of its lengthand from the reentrant hook forming portion otthe arm for the remainder of its-length to provideaslot, for the reception of 3. A garment clip for use in attaching a ribbon or tape to a garment strap or the like, said clip comprising a flat substantially rectangular body portion, an arm on said body portion extending substantially parallel with an edge of said body portion and bent adjacent its end toward said body portion to provide a reentrant end portion and to form a hook, the reentrant portion of said arm extending back alongside of the main portion of the'arm approximately to the median point of said body portion, said main portion of the am being spaced from said edge of the body portion for approximately half of its length and from the reentrant hook-forming portion of the arm for the remainder of its length to provide a slot, for the reception of a loop of tape or the like, said reentrant portion itself being spaced from said lower edge of the body portion of the clip to proa loop tape or the like, said reentrant portion itself being spaced from said lower edge of the body portion of the clip to provide a'second or entrance slot which communicates with said first-named slot at a point near the center thereof, for introducing said tape or ribbon into said first-named slot, -a pair of mutually inwardly extending arms onthe clip. at the opposite edge thereof, said lastnamed arms being spaced from said opposite edge of the clip, and theinwardly directed ends of said arms spaced from each other to form a T-shaped tape or ribbon receiving slot at said opposite edge of the clip.

vide a second or entrance slot which communicates with said first-named slot at a point near the center thereof, for "introducing said tape or ribbon into said first-named slot a pair of'mutually inwardly extending arms on the clip at the opposite edge thereof, said last-named arms being spaced from said opposite edge of the clip, and the inwardly directed ends of said arms spaced from each other to form a T-shaped tape or ribbon receiving slot at said opposite edge of the clip, and lugs formedon the free ends of said last-named arms and directed into said lastnamedslotin the direction toward said body portion, to provide means for increasing the frictional grip on the tape or ribbon passing through the transverse portion of said T-shaped slot,
