A further object is to provide apparatus of this character which will be formed of a few strong. simple and durable parts, which will be inexpensive to manufacture, and which will not easily get out of order.
With the above and other objects in view the struction and combinations of parts hereinafter fully described and claimed, it being understood that various modifications may be resorted to within the scope of the appended claims without invention consists of certain novel details of conseen' by referring to 4mure 3 um 'the ma com; prises an outer layer Il, an inner upper layer Il and an, inner lower layerfll. the inner layers overlapping to provide the mouth of a pocket I' formed by sewing the inner upper layer to the outer layer transversely and longitudinally by lines ofstitching Il and to provide a substantially rectangular. pocket adapted to hold one end of a sanitary'napldn. v
'I'he overlapped portions of the time! and lower inner layers I1 and Il are doubled back and stitched upon themselves to form respectivehems 2I yand 22. An elastic band 22 is disposed be'- tween the hems 2I and 22 and is stitched at bothl ends by the above-mentioned-lines of stitching 2l.. A tab 2l isinterposed between both hems 2.I and 22 and is stitched at the upper end to the upper inner layer above the hem 2| by a line of departing from the spirit or sacricing any of the advantages of the invention.
In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specication:
Figure 1 is a front elevation of a garment constructed in accordance with the invention.
Figure 2 is a top plan view of the crotch portion of the garment shown in Figure 1.
Figure 3 is a detail perspective view drawn to large scale showing one of the pockets.
Figure 4 is a plan view of one of the leg portion panels of the garment.
Figure 5 is a plan view of the outside layer of the front center panel of the garment.
Figure 6 is a plan view of the outside layer of the rear center panel.
Referring now to the drawing in which like characters of reference designate similar parts in the various views, III designates the leg portions of the garment formedfrom respective substantially trapezoid shaped blanks II of fabric as shown in Figure 4. In carrying out the invention the garment is provided with central front and rear panels I2 d I3 which are respectively of the general sha shown in Figures 5 and 6 and are each formed of a double thickness of material. The front and rear center panels are stitched to the leg panels III as shown at I4 and at the top. The leg panels are provided with a hem I5 in which 'is disposed elastic bands 8 and 9 leaving the front and rear panels free and obviating the possibility of puckers or wrinkles.
Referring more specifically to the construction of the center panels and especially to the construction of one of these panels, it will be stitching 25. 'I'he tab extends below the hem 2|.
As best shown in Figures 5 and 6; the lower ends of the layers forming the front and rear panels I2 Vand I3 are curved upwardly as shown respectively at 26 and 21. The purpose of this is to form an arched crotch seam 28 when these curved lower ends are sewed together.
The ends of a sanitary napkin 29, shown diagrammatically in Figure 2 may be inserted in the concealed pockets 9' and secured to the upper layer .I'I forming the pocket by inserting the ends underneath the elastic band 22 or by securing the ends to the tabs 24 by safety pins.
