Nw. 13, 1923. M7358@ G. KILLFEATHER BODY GARMENT Filed Junev 7. 1921 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Eig.
GERTRUDE KILLFEATHER, OF SPOKANE, KVASHINGTQN.
BODY GARMENT.
Application filed .Tune 7,
To all whom t may concern.'
Be it known that I, GERTRUDE KiLLrnArI-ra citizen of the United States, residing at Spokane, in Spokane County and the State o'i Vifashington, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Body Garments, of which the following is a specification.
My present invention relates to improvements in body garments especially adapted for childrens wear and of the middy dress type. T he primary object of the invention is the provision of an outer body garment of this type which is constructed in the form of a one-piece dress, patterned and stitched or r sewed in such manner that the garment may laid out tlat and smooth, thus rendering the operation of laundering convenient and facile. A -further object of the invent-ion is the iorination of the dress of a minimum number of parts requiring a comparatively small expenditure of time and labor for stitching, thus reducing the cost of manufacture. By gthc utilization of my invention inthe making oit garments of this character, the completed and laundered dress may be folded compactly and neatly without danger of wrinkling or creasing ttor insertion in or wrapping within a suitable envelope or wrapper, and for putting away in drawers until used. The dress thus made readily adapts itself for display in transparent wrappers when on sale, or being shipped, and presents a neat and attractive appearance not only when thus displayed, but when in actual use.
The invention consists in certain novel combinations and arrangements of parts making up the whole dress as will hereinafter be more fully described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings I have illustrated one complete example of the physical embodiment of my invention constructed according to the best model have thus ar devised for the practical application of the principles of my invention, which has proven highly satisfactory in actual use.
Figure l is a front view of a middy dress constructed accordin to my invention, the dress being laid out at.
Figure 2 is a rear or back view of the dress of Figure l.
Figure 3 is a view of the dress front, showing also the yoke at the neck, partly separated 'or convenience of illustration, and showing also portions of the braid separated from the bottom portion of the skirt.
Figure 4 is a view of the back of the dress.
1921. Serial No. 475,759.
Figure 5 is an enlarged detail sectional view showing the hem oi the front and back portions of the skirt, as at lines 5 5 in F igure 4e.
vFigures (3 and 7 are views of the sleeve pie-ces, detached, and Figure 8 is a view of the collar, detached, parte ciC the binding strips and binding braids being separated for disclosing the relation of parts.
ln the preferred form ot the invention as illustrated in the drawings the one piece garment may be made up ot' eenim or other durable material, linen or other wash goods.` and in many instances silks and satins may be advantageously used.
Preferably the dress is made up ot wash goods or material and in order to iiacilitate the washing and ironing ot the dress the essential parts as the 'trout lA and back 2 are cut on lines which permit the garment to lie iiat as shown in the drawings. It will be noted in the drawings that the lower portion ot the skirt ot the dress is slashed at $3, 3, at the opposite sides, and the back portion is cut away at 9. thus providing v[for a -fullness at the itront to accommodate the dress to the body ot thc child and insure the proper position oi? the slits 3 at the sides of: the skirt when worn.
At the edges oit the skirt on both thc vfront and back portions thereof a strip 4; is scwed to the outside, the edges oit the strip and skirt being turned in and. hemmed as at 5. The inner edge of the reinforcing strip ou both the front and back is secured to the dress by means of a strip of braid 6 the stitches extending through the braid, strip and skirt of the garment, and this strip`v which extends across the front and back and around the slashed portions 3 of the skirt, is of sufficient width to reinforce the skirt and adds rigidity to insure proper set to the lower portion of the skirt. In addition to the binding braid 6 other braids T may be stitched to the lower portions of the skirt for ornamentation and for reinforcement of the goods.
At the top of the dress trent a reinforcing yoke 8 is provided for the shoulders and for the neck portion 9, the yoke being stitched around the neck, across the shoulder portions and also across the breast portion ot the dress front, to strengthen the neck, breast, shoulder and sleeve portions of the dress, and the back 2 of the dress, as seen in Figure 4 is cut out at l0 to form the rear neck portion complementary to the front portion 9. The complementary edges la and 2 of the respective front and back shoulder portions are stitched together, and this formation together with the cut out 10 in the back of the dress provide a neat and smooth closefitting arrangement about the neck of the wearer permitting the shoulder and neck portions to lie smooth without wrinkling, over the shoulders and about the neck of the wearer, and this formation also affords proper support for the sailor collar il.
The collar 1l is eut out at Il in Vorder that its front wings may be stitched to the edges of the neck portion 9 of the dress front, and a reinforcing strip l2 is extended around the three looseV edges of the collar, similar to the strips 4i of the skirt, the same bindingbraid 6 and ornamental braids 'T being utilized about the collar as are used about the skirt.
The complementary sleeve portions i3 are also provided with edging strips as 14, and these strips are attached in the saine manner as the strips fi and l2, the braids 6 and also being utilized.
The single piece sleeves as in Figures 6 and 7 are each provided with points or exs tensions 18 to eorrespondlwith the notches l"L and 2" of the 'front and back ot the dress, which, when the sleeves are stitched to the shoulders or the dress, 'form a continuous curved line between the sides of the garment. and the seam line of the sleeves, thus pro viding for a snug fit beneath the arms, and 'freedom of movement of the sleeves, and inat the back, and may be detached readily for Y laundering.
From the above description taken in con nection with my drawings it is apparent that have provided a dress of the type described, which embodies ythe features and meritorious elements and combinations setJ forth as the objects and purposes of my invention, resulting in an attractive garment and possessing highly advantageous characteristics.
Havino` thus fully described my invention,
what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is` A one piece dress comprising a closed front and closed back and having the opposite sides of its skirt slashed, an outside reinforcing strip attached at the edges of the skirt and around the slashed portions, said strip and skirt having` their respective edges turned inwardly and secured together, and a binding member attached at the upper edge of the reinforcing strip.'
In testimony whereof I aiiix my signature.
GERTRUDE KILLFEATHER.
