woman's GARMENT.

Application filed July 12,

This invention relates to womens garments, more particularly garments combininga bodice and skirt.

In connection with garments embodying the general characteristics mentioned, I seek to retain all the advantages of the skirt as considered from the esthetic standpoint, and yet afford the wearer the utmost comfort with regard to freedom of leg movement 0 without entailing exposure within the confines of the skirt. 7

How the foregoing desideratum as well as other advantages may, be realized in practice will be aparent from the detailed description whic follows of the drawings herewith.

Fig.1 is a more or less diagrammatlc perspective view ofa garment embodying my invention. 2o Fig. H. is a vertical detail section taken locally as indicated by the arrows -II II in Fig. l; and, p Fig. III is a horizontal section taken in accordance with the arrows III-III in Fig. I. The garment chosen for the purposes of illustration herein. is of the slip type such as usually worn immediately beneath outer dresses and, as shown, comprises a main section 5 which. is made in tubular form from so suitable fabric, preferably silk, and, at the to su lemented with ap ropriate loop: stihps fi ddapted to fit over t 1e shoulders of the wearer. The upper portion 7 of the main section 5 serves as the bodice of the arment-in the present instance as a Y brassiere and the lower portion 8, as the skirt. The portion 8 is divided downward from the waist line with consequent provision of an open slit 10 for a purpose to be presently explained. A

Disposed within the main section 5 is a complemental skirt section '11 which ex tends entirely around the garment as shown in Figs. I and III, and is hung from the waist line Where it is permanently secured by the band of sewing stitches conventionally represented at 12. Like the skirt portion Sprovided by the main section 5, the complemental inner skirt section 11 is vertically slit as indicated at 13 at the other side of the garment.

By virtue of the described construction and arrangement of the component parts of the is underlapped by the complemental inner skirt section 11, and the slit 13 overlapped garment, it will be seen that the slit 10 1926. SerialNo. 121,780.

externally by theouter skirt 8. Thus, when the garment is worn, the skirt components 8. 11, will .yield readily displacement in permitting free movement of the legs without entailing exposure ofthe latter since the slits 10 and 13, notwithstanding incidental widening in accommodatin the above action, are at all times, protected as a consequence of the overlap of said skirt components. It will also be apparent, that the garment is very easilyput on and removed, and thatthe skirt, by reason of the double thickness of material constituting it, is shadow proof to a greater extent than the ordinary typeof skirt. A- further, advantage to be noted is that the skirt, b virtue of its novel construction, is entirely devoid of seams, and may therefore be made of very light material without danger of ripping or tearing as frequently happens with the closed construction heretofore prevalent.

While I have shown and described my in- Vention as embodied in the present instance in an under-garment, it is. obvious that the novel "features involved may be incorporated, with advantages equal to those hereinbefore pointed out, in various other kinds of garments' such as dresses, sport apparel, etc.

Having thus described my invention, I claim: I

l. A garment having a skirt portion comprising vertically slit sections each extending entirely around the garment,-and one overlapping the slit of another.

2. A garment having a skirt portion comrising two complemental sections one within the other, and respectively slit at opposite sides of the garment. v

3. A garment comprising a tubular main section providing. a bodice and skirt, the latter having a slit downward from the waist line; and an attached similarly-slit complemental skirt section hung from the waist to lap the slit in the main section aforesaid.

ii. A garment comprising a tubular main latter having a slit downward from the waist line; and an attached complemental similarly-slit inner skirt section hung from the waist to medially underlap the slit of the to relative lateral section providing a bodice and skirt, the

throughout the entire length of the skirt, the overlapping portions being permanently secured together at their upper ends and unattached the remainder of their length.

tions extending throughout the length'of the skirt, the skirt having its' upper end permanently secured to the lower portion of the body and having its overlapping portions unattached from their connection with the body to their lower ends.

7. A garment with a skirt-portion comprising a series of vertically-slit sections, each such section extending around the garment, and said respective slits being arranged in circumferentially staggeredrelation.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto signed my name at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, this sixth day of July 1926.
