Motherland further .objects and advantages of the present invention will be apparentifrom the followingdescription; thereof.

.Referring nowto the drawing whereinlike numerals refer to the same or. corresponding parts throughout the several ;v1ews:

t Figure 7 is a plan view showingthe manner. in which the crotch portions are laid out prior .to assemblyof the infants pants; and

t Figure 8: is a side elevation of the cloth blanks shown in Figure 7 .showing the position of the several .crotch portions.

Referring now. to the drawing,..and more particularly to F1gures 7 and 8, the infants pants embodying the.features ofgthe, present invention include an. outer, layer .of waterrepellent knit cotton indicated by the numeral .20,

: an intermediate layer of difficult to stretch .or relatively non-stretchable water .repellent material, such as flannelette, {treated to: repel water, indicated by. the numeral 21,-:and,.an innerdayer .of water repellent knit cotton being indicated by the numeral 22.

As shown in Figure 7, each crotch portion of the infants pants is similar in size and shape and comprises a narrow area 23 and two fan-shaped areas 24 and 25 extending therefrom, with the outermost point 24a of the fan-shaped area 24 terminating at a point which is approximately three-fourths of the distance from the midpoint of the narrow area 23 to the terminal point of the outer layer 20. The outermost point 250 of the fanshaped area 25 likewise terminates at a point which is approximately three-fourths the distance from the midpoint of the narrow area 23 of the crotch portion to the other terminal point or free edge of the outer layer 20.

It is to be understood that each of the crotch portions of layers 20, 21, and 22 are preferably similar in size and shape, and each is provided with leg cut-out portions 26 and 27, on opposite sides thereof to provide openings for the infants legs when the garment is in use, as shown in Figure 1 of the drawing.

In the assembly of the infants garment, the various blanks as shown in Figures 7 and 8 of the drawing are suitable folded and stitched with suitable stitching 28 so as to hold the three crotch portions firmly in place.

Likewise, suitable stitching 29 and 30 is used for the leg openings 26 and 27 to hold the three layers of cloth firmly in place.

As shown in Figure 4 of the drawing, the opposite side portions of the inrants pants are suitably joined together by means of stitching 31, it being understood that the stitching is similar for the front and rear of the infants garment.

As the particular stitching employed does not per se comprise a part of the present invention, it is to be understood that any suitable stitching may be employed to join together the various layers of the cloth which make up the infants garment embodying the principles or features of the present invention.

The numeral 32 generally refers to the waist area of the infants garment, and there is provided an elastic waistband 33 which is suitably sewn into the free end of the waist portion 32 so as to provide the pants with sufficient resiliency to stay on the infant when in use.

An important feature of the present invention is the provision of shirt tabs 34 and 35' which are sewn, or otherwise secured to the side portions or areas of the infants garment. These shirt tabs 34 and 35 are employed in securing the infants pants to tabs on the inside of the lower portion of the infants shirt S. For example, as shown in Figures 1, 2 and 6 of the drawing, shirt tab 34 is attached to the piece of cloth 34a which is disposed on the inside of the shirt S, the attachment being made through the means of a safety pin P.

Attention is directed to the fact that an important feature of the present invention is the employment of an intermediate layer of difiicult to stretch fiannelette, or like material, which has been treated with a water repellent composition. The purpose of the fiannelette is to hold the two layers of water repellent knit goods in tight position. The difficult to stretch flannelette will prevent the small openings between the fibers of the knit goods from stretching and enlarging to such an extent that some wetness would seep through. The intermediate flannelette layer is positioned in the crotch area in such a manner as to repel the full strength of the babys urine and to preclude the urine from travelling beyond the crotch area.

Another important feature of the present invention is the employment of the intermediate fiannelette layer which is sewn into the leg openings of the babys pants in such a manner that it will prevent the leg openings from stretching completely out of fit or out of shape after the babys pants have been washed a few times. All knit garments are subject to easily stretching after washing which is not so with the pants of the present invention.

Various modifications of the present invention will be apparent to those skilled in the art without departure from the spirit thereof and it is therefore desired to be limited only by the scope of the appended claims.
