This invention relates generally to womens wearing apparel. Wore particularly, my 111- \ention relates to a certain newand useful zniprovelnent in womens combination garments, and has for its object the provision of a convertible dress adapted particularly, though not exclusively, for alternate'or interchangeable sports and street wear, such that, when worn for sports or athletic purposes, the dress is wholly an external garment, sultable for such intended use and purposes, while for street wear an additional external garment is worn over. for covering or concealing, the lower or bloomer-portion of the dress, the bloomer-portion then becoming a nether garment, for which latter purpose the bloomers are provided suitably with a drop seat section, all as will presently be more particularly pointed out. 1

With the above and other objects in View, my invention resides in the novel features of form, construction, arrangement, comblnation, and use of the several parts thereof as pointed out in the appended specification and claim, and as illustrated in its preferred embod ment in the accompanying drawmgs, wherein- Figure 1 is a frontal view of the garment embodying my invention as employed for street wear;

Figure 2 is a frontal view of the garment as employed for athletic wear;

Figure 3 is an enlarged, detailed slde view of the garment, parts thereof broken away; and

Figure 4 is a fragmentary rear view of the garment.

Referring now more 111 detail to the drawing, the garment includes a dress adapted to enclose the body and comprising an upper part or waist 1 terminating at approximately the waist-line and forming a so-called blouse for encircling the figure, and a lower part or so-called bloomers2 closed at its crotch and to and depend from the frontal waist band 5, which permanently connects the Waist 1 and the bloomers 2, and the drop-seat section at opens at the rear of the waist 1,and is thereat provided with a belt-section or yoke 6 adaptedto 'be detachably secured "to the waistl by a suitable fastening-means or button-and-button hole arrangement, as shown at T; The waist 1 opens down the front tothe band 5, and suitable fastening means or button-and-button-hole arrangements, as shown at 8, serve toclose the said frontal opening. Imay say that the garment'is dressed-on'the figure after the manner of a so-called step-in, and in order to allow the requisite fullness for passing the waistover the hips, the waistl opens also at a side thereof, as shown at 9, preferably in alignment with one 10f the drop-seat plackets 4a, as seen in Figure 3, suitable fastening elements, as snap-fasteners 10, being provided to close "the sideopening 9. The yoke 6 isfurtheradapted to be detachably secured at its ends to the waistband 5 at the sides of the garment as by, a suitable fastening' means of button-and-button-hole arrangement, as shown at 11, the yoke16 in such respect overlapping the adjacentends of v the waistband 5, as shown in F igure'3.

The garment thus far described is most clearly shownin Figure 2, and in such regard it will be seen that the same forms a convenient and effective dress forsports or gymnasium wear. In order, however, that the dress may be also worn for street wear, I provide an external garment or preferably plaited skirt portion 12, detachably depending from the waist 1 for concealing or covering the lower part or bloomers 2 of the dress, the skirt 12 being provided with a girdle or yoke 13 detachably conjoined or secured to the waist 1 by Suitable fastening means or buttonand-button-hole arrangements 14.

The irdle or yoke 13 of the skirt 12 opens at a side, as seen in Figure 3, in order that the skirt may be readily expanded and dressed on the wearer, and suitable fastening means or button-and-button-hole arrange.- ments are provided, as at 15, for closing said side opening in order that the assembled garment may present a neat andattractive appearance, as will be understood from an inspection of Figure 1. When so worn, the garent is:

ment forms a combined outer and nether dress, suitable for street or house wear, wherein the blouse 1 and skirt 12 are the external garments and the bloomers 2 form the the nether garment.

I may'here state that the upper part of the waist 11. is provided with suitable arm holes 16 and neck opening 17, the latter preferably having a collar 18 as shown.

The uses of-my garmenthave-been p ointed" out from time to-time as the descrlption' has proceeded,and it will be understood, thatv changes in the combination and arrangein'ents of parts may ben ade and substituted for those herein shown and described without departing fromlthe spirit of the invention, as defined in theappended claim. 7 V a Having thus, described my invention-, what I. claim-and'desire to secure by Letters Bat- A convertibleformefittingstepein garment of the kinddescribed adapt-edto fit. snugly;- over the hips of'theuser coniprisingva waist portion, prov-idedwith a frontal; waist band, abloomer portionipermanently connected to said waist band'having' side slits to provide a drop seatportion,said waistzbeing provided with an upwardly extending slit at one end of saidzwaist band inalignmentwith oneof the side slits of said'bloomerportion. toprovide a fullness to, allow thegarment to pass over the hips of the user, means-for, fastening the overlappingedgesofthe slit of said-waist together, a belt. portion carried by theupper edge of said drop seatportion, means for fastening the ends of said belt portion to the ends of the waist band of said; waist and a skirt having a. belt adapted to embrace saidwaist' the junction with said fbl'oomers having; connecting meansat; its ends forsupporting said skirt over said-bloomers, said belt being; of sufficientwidth to extend upwardly above the Waist band of saic lwaist'and thei belt-zportion of said bloomers.
