  • Referring now to the figures, and to FIGS. 1A and 1B in particular, a young girl 10 is shown wearing a garment in the form of girl-style underwear 12 (FIG. 1A) or pajama pants 14 (FIG. 1B) according to one embodiment of the present invention, where like numerals represent like parts in the various figures. Underwear 12 and pajama pants 14 include a front side 16, a rear side (not shown) and a waistband 18 for receiving the girl's waist 20. The underwear 12 (FIG. 1A) also includes leg openings 22, 24 for receiving the girl's legs 26, 28. It will be appreciated that while garments in the form of underwear or pajama pants are shown and described herein, the garment may also comprise a swimsuit bottom, leggings, sweatpants or any other suitable garment that is worn around the waist and lower body portion of the wearer.
  • According to one embodiment of the present invention, each of the underwear 12 and pajama pants 14 includes a graphical representation 30 of an animal's face which is positioned on the front side 16 of the garment. A pair of graphical representations 32 a, 32 b of anatomical features of the same animal, such as the animal's paws as shown in the illustrated embodiment, are positioned on the front side 16 and are spaced laterally on opposite sides of the graphical representation 30 of the animal's face. In this embodiment, the pair of graphical representations 32 a, 32 b are both associated with a respective pair of flapless pockets 34 a, 34 b positioned on the front side 16 of the garment and spaced laterally on opposite sides of the graphical representation 30 of the animal's face. In this embodiment, each of the flapless pockets 34 a, 34 b has an upwardly facing opening (not shown) as will be described in greater detail below.
  • Referring now to FIG. 2, a garment in the form of girl-style underwear 12 is shown having a graphical representation 30 of an animal's face positioned on the front side 16 of the garment, similar to the embodiment illustrated in FIGS. 1A and 1B. In this embodiment, the graphical representation 30 is in the form of a fabric panel or patch 36 including a graphical representation of a dog's face and which may be attached to the waistband 18 and/or the front side 16 of the garment by stitching, adhesive, releasable fastener such as Velcro®, or any other conventional attachment method known to those of ordinary skill in the art.
  • A first graphical representation 32 a of a dog's paw in the form of a fabric panel or patch 38 a is positioned on the front side 16 of the garment and is spaced laterally on one side (e.g., the left side in FIG. 2) of the graphical representation 30 of the animal's face. In this embodiment, the panel or patch 38 a may be partially attached by stitching to the front side 16 of the garment with seams 40 that extend around a lower portion of the panel or patch 38 a to form an upwardly directed flapless pocket 34 a positioned on the front side 16 and having an upwardly facing pocket opening 42 a.

In this embodiment, the panel or patch 38 b may be attached by stitching to the front side 16 with seams 40 that extend entirely around the panel or patch 38 b so that a pocket or pocket opening is not formed thereby. It will be appreciated that any conventional method known to those of ordinary skill in the art may be used to attach the panels or patches 38 a, 38 b to the front side 16 of the garment.
  • Referring now to FIG. 3, another embodiment of the present invention is shown. In this embodiment, the graphical representation 30 of the dog's face is not provided in the form of a panel or patch as described in connection with FIG. 2, but rather the graphical representation 30 of the dog's face is applied directly to the front side 16 of the garment, such as by stenciling, screening, lithography, printing or any other suitable method known to those of ordinary skill in the art. Also, in this embodiment, a pair of upwardly directed flapless pockets 34 a, 34 b are provided on opposite sides of the graphical representation of the animal's face 30, with each pocket 34 a, 34 b having a respective opening 42 a, 42 b. In this embodiment, the panels or patches 38 a, 38 b perform two separate functions. First, the panels or patches 38 a, 38 b are configured to form the respective flapless pockets 34 a, 34 b as will be described in greater detail below. Second, the panels or patches 38 a, 38 b are configured to include the respective graphical representations 32 a, 32 b of the animal's paws, for example, so that the animal's paws are associated with the respective pockets 34 a, 34 b.
  • Referring now to FIGS. 3A-3F, various pocket configurations are shown in cross-section according to various alternative embodiments. For example, in the flapless pocket of FIG. 3A, the panel or patch 38 b forms a pocket that is partially attached directly at a lower portion thereof to an outer surface of the front side 16 of the garment below the waistband 18 with seams 40 (see FIG. 3), forming the upwardly directed flapless pocket 34 b. An opening 42 b is provided between the front side 16 and the panel or patch 38 b for access to the cavity of the pocket 34 b. The graphical representation 32 b of the dog's paw may be applied directly to the panel or patch 38 b, such as by stenciling, screening, lithography, printing or any other suitable method, or the graphical representation 32 b of the dog's paw may be stitched directly onto the fabric panel or patch 38 b. Alternatively, as will be described in greater detail below, the panel or patch 38 b may include a three-dimensional soft sculpture attached to the panel or patch 38 b, or the panel or patch 38 b may itself be in the form of a three-dimensional soft sculpture. It will be appreciated, while not fully described herein, that the flapless pocket 34 a may be similarly constructed via the fabric panel or patch 38 a.
  • As shown in FIG. 3B, the pocket 34 b may be provided with a pair of conventional closure devices 44 a, 44 b configured to hold the pocket 34 b in a closed position.
