WILLIAM 5EIDLER Patented Aug. 17, 1954 DOLL ATTACHMENT FOR CHILDRENS GARMENTS William Seidler, New York, N. Y.
Application July 28, 1952, Serial No. 301,188
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in doll attachment for childrens garments.
More particularly, the present invention proposes a doll head construction for attachment to a childs garment such as a dress, apron, skirt, jacket, blouse, jumper, pinafore or the like.
Another object of the present invention proposes forming a substantially flat doll head construction having a doll face with'simulated hair.
and framed by backing material secured to the doll face to resemble a bonnet so that the construction can be fastened to a childs garment by the backing material.
Still further, the present invention proposes a detachable doll face having a simulated lace trimmed bonnet and artificial hair with artificial flowers therein for attachment to a garment.
As a further object, the present invention proposes forming a new and useful doll head construction and pocket element to provide a novel pocket structure on a childs garment.
The present invention further proposes a novel arrangement of a hollow doll face or mask secured to backing material with trimmings around the face to provide a novel pocket element when secured to a garment, the doll face furnishing additional space in the pocket.
For further comprehension of the invention and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawings forming a material part of this disclosure:
Fig. 1 is a front view of a childs dress on which the doll head construction of this invention is secured so as to provide a pocket on the dress.
Fig. 2 is a similar view of a child's sun dress on which the doll head construction of the present invention is detachably secured.
Fig. 3 is a rear view of the doll head construction illustrated in Fig. 2.
Fig. 4 is a sectional view taken on line 4-4 of Fig. 3.
Fig. 5 is a sectional view taken on line 5--5 of Fig. 3.
Fig. 6 is a fragmentary view taken on line 66 of Fig. 1.
The doll head construction 15 of the present invention includes a hollow doll face I! preferably made of stifliy flexible material such as paper mache, rubber or plastic. The doll face or mask IT has sides I3 (Fig. 4) and I9 (Fig. 5)
and top and bottom portions 20 and 2.! respectively. These side portions and top and bottom portions terminate in the peripheral edge 22 (Figs. 4 and 5) of the doll face which corresponds to a line just in front of the ears around a head and a short way down from the chin on a person's neck.
A sheet of backing material 23. is secured tothe doll face 17 along the peripheral edge '22 as by gluing, cementing, stitching, heat sealing or other well known means. The sheet of backing material 23 may be of thermoplastic sheeting or similar material but preferably is of fabric. It may be of the same fabric as the garment to which it is to be attached. Before the sheet of backing material 23 is secured to the doll face i1, artificial hair 24 is first secured along the marginal portions of the doll face around its upper periphery at the top and to the sides of the face. The artificial hair 25 may be of any doll hair material but preferably consists of looped strands of yarn with one end of each loop secured and one end free.
Artificial flowers 25 made of velvet cloth or other flower making materials are secured to the doll face I! also at the side of the doll face and arranged to extend through and in the artificial hair 24. The hair and the flowers may be of any suitable colors.
The sheet of backing material 23 is gathered around the doll face in securing it to the doll head and extends beyond the doll face at its sides and the top with the unsecured edge 26 of the backing sheet 23 extending forwardly of the doll face to resemble a bonnet around the face.
A peripheral band 27 of lace, net, ribbon or edging, or the like is secured to the periphery or unsecured edge 26 of the backing sheet 23 to form a decorative band trimming the bonnet.
Disposed inside the hollow doll face I! and secured over the secured edges of backing sheet 23 to the doll face I! is another backing sheet 28. This second backing sheet has a bottom edge portion 29 extending over the bottom edge of the doll face beneath the chin of the doll face. A ribbon how 30, made of a single piece of ribbon folded or tied in bow form overlies this bottom edge portion 29. The ribbon bow 30 and the bottom edge portion 29 are both secured to the doll face I! by a single staple 3| extending through them and clinched at the back of the doll face.
The doll head construction l5 may be removably secured to a garment, such as the sun dress 32 illustrated in Fig. 2, by safety pins 33 or other fastening means extending through or attached to the backing sheet 23 at the sides of the doll face l1. (See also Figs. 3-5.)
Likewise, the doll head construction I 5 may be secured to a garment, such as the childs dress 34 illustrated in Figs. 1 and 6 by stitches 35 to form a pocket 36 on the garment. The substantially flat doll head construction [5 is sewn to the garment by placing stitches 35 through the backing sheet 23 along and adjacent to where the lace band 21 is attached, the stitches starting near the top of the doll face I! and extending down and under the chin of the doll face and up the outer edge of the backing material 23 at the other side of the doll head to a point across from the starting point. In this manner a pocket element is formed with entrance to the pocket 36 being provided through the unstitched portion of the doll head construction at the top of the doll face.
While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself 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 my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:
1. A pocket for a childs garment comprising in combination with the garment, a hollow doll face,
a backing sheet secured around the periphery of the doll face to simulate a bonnet on the doll face, and stitching on three sides of said backing sheet connected to said garment to provide a pocket.
2. A pocket for a childs garment comprising in combination with the garment, a hollow doll face, a backing sheet secured around the periphery of the doll face to simulate a bonnet on the doll face, and stitching on three sides of said backing sheet connected to said garment to provide a pocket, said stitching starting near the top of the doll face and extending down and under the chin of the doll face and up the outer edge of the backing material on the other side of the doll face to a point across from the starting point.
3. The combination of claim 2 wherein a pcripheral band of lace material is secured to the periphery of the backing material to conceal the pocket.
