GARMENT PROTECTOR Filed May 29, 1953 INVENTOR fl n esl Ta La)" ATTORNEYS I Patented Get. 15, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE- GARMENT rao'rac'roa Agnes E. Taylor, Detroit, Mich. Application May 29,3133, Serial No. 673,529 2 Claims. (clip-114) I 'he invention relates togarment protectors designed to hold the dress from contact with either the hair or face of the wearer when drawn over the head. It is the object of the invention to obtain a construction which is equally useful when the dress is drawn on or removed, which is exceedingly simple in construction and easily applied. To this end the invention consists in the construction as hereinafter set forth.

In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view showing the protector in position for drawing on the dress;

Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the device as used for the removal of the dress;

Fig. 3 is a plan view of the protector detached.

The protector is formed of flexible sheet mate'- rial such for instance as an organdy which is sufficiently sheer to enable the user to see therethrough when placed over the eyes. and also has sufiicient stiflness to hold its form when supported from below. As shown in Fig. 3. the fabric is cut to form a split ring A having its outer edge B and radial edges C preferably scalloped to protect the same from raveling, while the inneredge, which is acircle of smaller radius. is reinforced by a, binding D. This binding has placed thereon a plurality of snap fasteners E by means of which the radial edges may be overlapped to different degrees and the diameter of the circular bound edge D may be thereby diminished or enlarged.

For use in dressing, the protector is adjusted as shown in Fig. 1, so that the bound edge D rests upon the head of the user, permitting the fabric to drape over the face and hair. The dress may then be drawn over the head and will be held out of contact with either the face or hair. For removing the dress, the protector is placed with its bound edge around the neck of the user and the fasteners are adjusted to properly diminish the circumferential length. In its initial position it will rest over the shoulders in the form of a collar, (shown in dotted lines at A Fig. 2) but when the dress is drawn upward over the head, the protector will be turned upward to extend over the face'and the hair, thereby facilitating the sliding off of the garment without contact with either. The stifiness of the fabric is sufficient to hold it in this position without exposing any portion of the face or hair to contact with the dress.

The purpose of the protector is primarily to prevent soiling of the dress by coming in contact with powder, rouge, cream or other cosmetics on the face, or any oil from the hair. -On the other hand, it facilitates the slipping of the garment over the head without catching on hairpins, hair 5 ornaments, earrings, etc., and without injury to the makeup. This is due to the fact that the fabric is merely placed against the face or hair and is not in rubbing contact therewith.

Another use of the device is in connection with 10 the same of dresses which may be tried on by many difierent individuals. It is much more sanitary to protect the dress when thus tried on from the face or hair of the individual.

Where the protector is used, there will be a saving in the expense of cleaning bills, as well as the inconvenience and disappointment of soiling a gown after perhaps a first wearing.

While 'I have described the protector as being formed of a light sheer fabric such as organdy, it may also be formed of other sheet materials such for instance as paper. This construction will be particularly useful in retail stores where garments are tried on, as a different protector may be used for each individual. Thus by protecting garments from soiling, losses will be avoided.

What I claim as my invention is:

1. A garment and head protector comprising a radially split ring of sheet material, and fasteners secured to the inner edge of said ring to secure the portions on opposite sides of the split in overlappingg relation, said fasteners being so positioned that in one adjustment the said inner edge will fit about the head above the hair to drape'down the face and hair, and in another adjustment will fit about the neck and to extendupward therefrom about the face and hair the radial dimension of said ring being sufficient for thus overlapping the face and hair.

2. A garment and head protector comprising a radially split ring of light flexible translucent material, the inner peripheral edge thereof being of a dimension to surround the head above the hair ofthe user or to be overlapped to fit around the neck, and the radial length being such as to cover the face and hair when in either of said positions, and fastening means for the overlapping edges in each position of adjustmerit.
