LADYS VIIEARING APPAREL.
Application filed February 10, 1925. Serial No. 8,165.
' York, have made certain new and useful Improvements in Ladies Wearing Apparel, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to garments and it particularly relates to garments adapted for use as housedresses, negligee gowns, and the like ladies wearing apparel. The object of the invention is to produce such apparel without any waste of material and with a minimum of labor and yet to be of full width and length.
It is another object of the invention to make a ladys wearing apparel which, though made with only a minimum of labor, is of pleasmg and attractive appearance and can be slipped on with great facility, and
which, while showing a loose and flowing effect, is devoid of bagginess and shapelessness.
According to this invention the garment is made from a single piece, or strip, of material cut off in proper length from the roll of goods, or fabric, and is made from such a piece, or strip, without cutting it to shape, in the original width in which the fabrics for ladies wear are usually brought on the market. The garment made according to this invention droops in graceful lines around the body and this effect is solely brought about by the arrangement and the location of the fastening means about the strip. Suitable apertures are provided for the neck and for the arms by simply cutting slits into the strip at the various parts of the same, the head and the arms being passed through the respective apertures so hat the material depends in front of and at the back f the wearer, the side edges being drawn together in the manner specified below.
With the foregoing and other objects in view, which will be apparent from the fol- 1r wing description, reference is had to tln accolupanying drawings, in which--- 7 Fig. 1 represents a plan view of the upper side of a strip of material, as cut off from the roll, the strip displaying the apertures for the necl: and arms and how the fastening means are disposed about the strip;
Fig. 2 shows the folding of the strip when slipped over the body and held together by the fastening means, seen from the front;
Fig. 3 illustrates in a rather diagrammatic way how the strips can he out without 1 loss whatever;
4 shows the strip slipped over, but seen from the rear.
in the drawings 10 dei'iotes a strip offabric cut off a roll of goods as obtained in the market, the strip having a length about twice the distance from the neck to the ankles of the person and having its original width. lwo slits 11 and 12 are cut in linear arrangement into this slip 10 in about its middle, or shoulder line, in a direction perpendicular to the parallel edges 13 ar 1 1, while centrally between and perpendicularly to the slits 11 and 12 a somewhat longer slit 15 is arranged extending preferably equally far on both sides along the middle axis. It serves as an aperture through which the wearer passes her head, and the slits 11 and 12 serve F apertures through which the arms are passed. The distance of the inner ends of the slits 11 and 12 from slit 15 is approximately that of the distance of the edge of the shoulder, from the neck so that the material between the said slit 15 and aforesaid slits 11 and 12 is always retained on the shoulder by the edges of the slit 15. Small spaces 16 and 17 of fabric are left between the outer ends of slits 11 and 12 and the edges 13 and 14, respectively, thus automatically treating bot tom closed sleeves integrally connected with the strip. For decorative effects the slits 11, 12 and 15 are lined with any suitable trimmings, such as ribbons, fur etc, which allow to dispense with seaming these apertures; for the same reason the ct gee 18 and 19 across the width of the strip may be turned slightly inwardly to form the hems 20 and 21; it is only on these cross edges, either 18 or 19, or on the turned in lines 20 and 21, where the dress is provided with home.
On the upper side of the front part A of the strip 10 there are arranged the female members of. the prcssbuttons 22, 23 and 24;. 22 being disposed on the right side of the wearer approximately vertically below the inner end of slit 11 and in about the middle of the distance of said slit 11 from line 21, member 23, disposed on the left side of the wearer, having the same distance from the lower'end of slit 15 and being below the inner end of slit 12, while member 24c is secured close to edge 141 slightly above member 23 in practically the same height as member 22. C11 the under side of the back part B of the strip 10 two male members 25 and 26 are provided in practically the same, or slightly less, distance, usually called the waist line, as that of the female member 22 from the slit 11, or shoulder line, while a male member 2? is secured on the underside of the front part or panel A, close to edge iii, somewhat above the member 2%. When it is desired to wear the garment ine passes the head through slit 1:) and then s the arms through slits 11 and 12, n one turns the side edges of the Li rearwardly around the body, an and 27 together, brings ide edges of the rear part. or panel s the front part or panel A, and sorts the members and 26 into oers and 23, respectively. T he nt, if slipped over and fastened toas described, droops gracefully from a and on account of the differe in height of the coacting members of the pressbuttons loose and flowing folds show around the arms and hips; on account of the difference in the distance of the coacting members 2st and 27 from the shoulder line the hem line 21 is lifted whereby folds in the front part A are created. This den 30 ble function of the press buttons, or other like acting means, in forming folds to create an artistic effect, is one of the important features of the invention.
Any suitable fastening means, like hook and eyes, or the like, will answer the purposes of my invention and may substitute the press buttons. Though I have stated above that I prefer to make the garment from one single strip, such as cut off a roll,
it may just as well be made from a strip of rectangular form joined together from various parts of different material, or color, as may be desired by the different taste of the people. The location of the members of the fastening means may also be varied to some extent to comply with the requirements necessitated by different sizes of persons,- or wishes in regard to variations in the fold.
Fig. 3 illustrates how two strips can be cut in sets, without waste, in one operation. This form facilitates especially the manufacture of the garment on a large scale where many layers of fabric are laid over each other and after the incisions for the slits ll, 12 and 15 have been made in any of the well known ways, the strips are severed along the line 28 by a cut, this line 28 indicating the front hem, while lines 29 and 30 indicate the back hem of each of the garments made from the double length strip.
lVhat I claim is:
l. A ladys wearing apparel comprising an integral strip of material of a length substantially twice the shoulder height of the wearer, said strip having in substantially its middle two slits, serving as" arm openings, in linear arrangement to each other and disposed perpendicularly to the edges of said strip, a slit, serving as a neck opening, disposed perpendicularly and extending substantially equidistantly to aforesaid two slits, and means to hold the front )anel and rear panel of the strip together.
2. A ladys wearing apparel, comprising); an integral strip of material of a length substantially twice the shoulder height of the wearer, said strip being provided in its center with a slit as a neck opening along the middle axis and longitudinally equid istantl v' from the said center, two slits of equal length, serving as arm openings, disposed. symmetrically on both sides of and perpendicularly to aforesaid slit in the middle of the same, the material between the inner ends of said arm opening slits and said neck opening slit being of eq'ual width on both sides of said neck slit, the material between the outer edge of each of the arm opening slits and the respective edge of the strip being also of equal width and forming a sleeve each with the aforementioned corresponding material on each side of the neck opening, and means to hold the front panel and rear panel of the strip together. i
3. A ladys wearing apparel, comprising an integral strip of material of a length substantially twice the shoulder height of the wearer, said strip being provided in its center with a slit, as a neck opening, along the middle axis and longitudinally equidistantly from the said center, two slits of equal length, serving as arm openings, disposed symmetrically on both sides of and perpendicularly to aforesaid slit in the middle of the same, the material between the inner ends of said arm opening slits and said neck opening slit being of equal width on both sides of said neck slit, the material between the outer edge of each of the arm opening slits and the respective edge of the strip being also of equal width and forming a sleeve each with the aforementioned corresponding material on each side of the neck opening, and a plurality of fastening members disposed about and below the \i 'aist-line on both the front and back panels of the garment and adapted to co-operate with each other to connect said panels together and to produce graceful folds in said panels.
