Z, HH Hum.

Patented Oct. 20, 1942 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 3 Claims.

This invention relates to improvements in bibs and more particularly is concerned with bib napkins primarily adapted for infants.

An important object of the invention is to provide a bib which may snugly fit around the neck and chest of the wearer but which is characterized by a novel construction permitting expansion or relative movement between the chest and shoulder portions of the bib in response to movements of the wearer.

Another object is to provide a bib which is adapted to fit persons of varying sizes and thus may be used by a growing infant over a period of several years.

A further object is to provide a bib in which only a single line of stitching is necessary to complete a form fitting garment and which is otherwise exceedingly simple in construction and inexpensive in cost of manufacture.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the following detailed explanation taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawing wherein a preferred embodiment of the principles of my invention has been selected for exemplification.

In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a side elevational view looking at the front or outer side of a bib constructed according to my invention;

Fig. 2 is a view similar to Fig. 1 but looking at the rear or inner side of the bib, and

Fig. 3 is a plan view of a blank from which the bib of Figs. 1 and 2 is formed.

Referring more particularly to the drawing wherein like numerals refer to like parts, the numeral l indicates a sheet or blank of Turkish toweling, but which may be of any other suitable cloth or paper material, ab sgrbent or moisture repellent. While the sheet or blank illustrated is substantially square, it will be understood that the particular shape or size of the body portion of the blank is not material to the invention.

The blank or sheet ID, as best shown in Fig. 3, is provided at its upper edge with a central neck recess l2 and a pair of arm hole recesses l4, each at opposite sides of and spaced from the neck recess lZby intervening front sections Ill. The side sections 20 remain free to be folded to define the arm holes and form the shoulder portions of the bib.

In assembling the blank above described, each side section 20 is folded over the upper edge Portion of its adjacent front section I8 so that the upper edge of each side section is in part contiguous to the adjacent edge of the neck recess I2 and in part in substantial alignment with an extension of the neck recess edge. With the blank folded in this position it is merely necessary to stitch or otherwise secure the meeting edges of the side sections and neck recess to complete the form of the garment. A binding tape 22 may then be secured around the side section and neck recess edges to terminate in tie straps for fastening the bib around the neck of the wearer. To add to the finished appearance of the article, binding tape or the like may be secured to other edges preferably before the blank is folded and stitched, as indicated at 23 in Fig. 3.

From the foregoing it will be seen that only a single line of stitching may necessarily be used to form the completed bib from the blank. Among other advantages, I regard the resulting flexible interconnection of the front and shoulder portions as of the utmost importance in that the wearer may move with freedom, such as when reaching for food, without permanently disarranging the bib or destroying its protective function. The front sections l8, which are secured only at their upper or neck recess edges, normally snugly fit the shoulders and chest but remain free to flex outwardly in response to movements of the wearer and also permit a single sized garment to conform to wearers of variable sizes.

It will be understood that the specific article herein illustrated and described is exemplary only of the principles of the invention which embrace such modifications as are within the scope of the following claims.

What I claim is:

l. A bib comprising a front section and a central neck recess at the upper edge of said front section, side sections integral with the lower portion of said front section and spaced from the upper portion of said front section to provide arm holes, the top portion of each of said side sections and the adjacent upper portion of said front section overlapping one another with the top edges of the side sections in substantial alignment with the neck recess edge and secured together to form shoulders, the over and underlapped portions of said shoulders being unsecured and free to move relative to each other in response to the size or movements of the wearer.

2. A bib formed of a sheet of material having neck and arm openings, the arm openings being separated from the neck opening by shoulder portions, said shoulder portions comprising overlapping extensions secured together adjacent the neck opening only for free relative movement of said extensions adjacent the armholes to provide for arm movement expansion of the armholes.

3. A bib comprising a front section and a central neck recess at the upper edge of said front section, side sections integral with the lower portion of said front section and spaced from the upper portion of said front section to provide arm holes, the top portion of each of said side sections and the adjacent upper portion of said 10 front section bordering said neck recess overlapping one another with the top edges of the side sections in substantial alignment with the neck recess edge whereby to form shoulders, securing means for said substantially aligned edges of the side sections and neck recess, and a binding tape for said substantially aligned edges terminating in tie straps.
