l Claim.
The present invention relates to a combination garment for womens wear and relates more particularly to a bathing suit which has the outward appearance and fit of a summer play or sport dress.
Broadly stated, the present invention provides a two-part or combination garment in which the outer garment is made of woven ornamented Y dress material, such as the types of percale prints or the like or of any other woven or knitted dress materials that are commonly used for summer wear and an inner garment which is in the form of a one-piece bathing suit. The two garments are, however, attached to each other so that they l5 constitute one unit, are worn together, are donned and doffed together, the two garments being so united, however, that all of the nether portion of the garment and substantially all of the upper portions of the garment are free to move relative to each other. This construction and arrangement renders the garment highly comfortable to the wearer and also preserves the neat and dressy appearance of the outer dress portion of the garment. The inner knitted bathing suit portion of the garment which may be made either of cotton or woolen knitted material is free to contract or expand during use without interfering with the dressy appearance of the outer or dress portion of the garment.
In the construction of the garment the waists of the inner and outer portions are of substantially the same outlines, although the waist of the knitted inner portion may be designed to t the body of the wearer a little more snugly than the outer dress portion. This organization permits the attachment of the two portions of the garment during the process of manufacture merely by having the finished line of stitching in the arm holes and neck openings of the waist Ii0 serve to unite the two garments.
In the accompanying drawing two embodiments of the present invention are disclosed, but it will be understood that these are merely illustrative and that variations thereof falling within the l5 scope of the present invention will be apparent to persons skilled in the art.
In the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a front view of the garment;
Fig. 2 is a rear View of the garment;
Fig. 3 shows a modified detail; and
Fig. 4 is a section on the line 4 4 of Fig. 2.
Referring to the drawing, the outer garment I0 is shown as made of woven dress material and in the particular form of the invention shown herein, a printed percale is employed. The waist portion II of this dress is sleeveless and has relatively large armholes I2 and I3. The neck opening I4 is preferably V-shaped in front and cut considerably lower in back as shown.
The waist II is preferably designed and con- 5 structed so as tot snugly over the bodyfof the wearer and comprises a pair of front breast receiving panels I5 and I6 and an interposed gore II which is relatively narrow at the top Where it forms the lower point of the V-shaped front por- 10 tion of the neck opening and widens toward the bottom so that it constitutes a gore that is interposed between the two breast receiving pockets I5 and I6 and also between the front portion I8 of the skirt and the breast panels I5 and I6. In 15 joining the breast panels I5 and I6 to the gore I1, the former are preferably shirred or gathered so as to impart to these portions a pocket formation. The back of the waist comprises the panels I9 and 20 shaped as shown and which are joined to the vertical edges of the breast portions I5 and I6. Each of the breast portions I5 and I6 has a relatively narrow upward extension which join the corresponding narrow upward extensions of the panels I9 and 20 and together form the 25 shoulder straps of the garment.
The front portion I8 of the skirt is preferably formed with a pleat 2I as shown and is connected at the top thereof to the lower edge of the gore I'l. The back 22 of the skirt is also provided 30 with a pleat 23. The back portion 22 is preferably somewhat longer than the front portion I8 and extends upwardly to the bottom of the back panels I9 and 20 and is connected thereto.
The back portion of the skirt is preferably 35 provided with a placket 24 having fastening devices in the form of buttons and button holes as shown.
In the construction of the garment III belt portions 25 are joined at the waist line at the side 40 seams and when the garment is worn, these portions 25 are tied together to form a bow in the back of the garment.
The inner garment 26 is made of material commonly employed in the manufacture of bathing 45 suits and preferably has desired elastic qualities.
In the form of the invention shown herein, it is made of a knit textile material. This garment comprises a. front panel having its upper or waist portion=cut with armholes and V-shaped neck opening in registry with the corresponding portions of the outer garment I0. The back of the garment comprises the panels 28 and 29 which have their upper waist portions cut to register with the corresponding portions of the 55 outer garment I0. The garment also has a twoply crotch portion 30 which cooperates with the adjacent portions of the panels 21, 28, and 29 to form the leg openings 3| and 32. In the formation of the side seams in the trunks a pleat 33 is formed so as to give the seat of the garment the desired fullness.
It will be seen that the two back panels form a slit or opening 34 which is in registry with the placket of the outer garment. The bottom of this opening is reinforced by a gore 35 of elastic material which may be single layered or double layered, as desired.
In the manufacture of this garment the outer dress portion and the inner bathing suit portion are produced separately in their substantially finished condition, except that the armholes and neck opening of the two garments are left in an unfinished state. The two garments are then assembled merely by the insertion of the garment made o f knitted material into the garment made of woven dress material and the openings of the two garments are placed in registry, the edges are then infolded, and the armholes are finished by. ther line of stitching 36. A similar line of stitching 3.1 along the edge of the neck opening givesvthe neck opening a nished appearance and alsov serves to attach the inner garment to the outer garment.
It will now be understood that, aside from these three lines of stitching around the armholes and the neck opening, the garments are unattached to each other and free to move relative to each other with the result that the elastic knitted material of the inner garment or the vbathing suit proper is free to contract and expand when the garment is worn and is free to change its shape from the wet to the dry condition without wrinkling or in any way deforming the shape and appearance of the outer garment.
In the preferred form of the invention the skirt of the outer garment extends somewhat below the trunks of the inner garment.
It will understood that the placket need not be disposed in the middle of the back as shown in Fig. 2 but may be disposed in any other suitable part of the garment. For example, the placket may be disposed in the side seam as shown in Fig. 3. In this gure, the placket extends from the bottom of the armhole downwardly and approximately half way the length of the skirt. In this form the knitted inner garment may, if desired, be attached to the upper portion of the placket, as at 38 and 39. This attachment, it will be seen, is all disposed in the waist portion of the garment.
A sleeveless bathing suit including an outer garment comprised ,of a waist portion having arm-holes and a neck opening integrally formed with a skirt portion, and a placket extending downwardly at least as far as the hip line of the suit from one of said openings, said placket being provided with fastening devices, an inner garment comprised of a similar waist portion having shorts formed integrally therewith, means securing ksaid waist portions together along said arm-holes and neck openings, and a slit formed in said inner garment having its edges coincident with the edges ofv said placket but unattached thereto whereby said inner garment may hang freely from said arm-holes and neck openings.
