Description

Jan. 4, 1949. G. DAVENPORT GARMENT STRUCTURE Filed March 22, 1947 HTTOHN'EY Fatenied Jan. 4, 1949 x Y i i i Gertrude navenpmjnew York, N. r.
Application a n :2, 957, sen n msos This invention relates to sleeveless garments and particularly to a garment adapted to serve as a dressing gown or bath robe.
1 The object of the invention is to provide such a garment in simple, inexpensive formeaslly and quickly put on and oil and attractively formclinging and neat in appearance, and preferably of terry cloth or similar soft fabric.
Other objects of the invention particularly in forming the garment as a complete unit with a minimum of parts and operations involved will appear from the following specification taken in connection with the accompanying drawings in which i Fig. 1 is a view of the garment structure spread out to show the interior construction;
Figs. 2 and 3 are front and rear views of the garment as worn, and
Fig. 4 is a sectional view of a detailon line 4 of Fig. 1.
As indicated in Fig. 1 the garment 5 is preferably formed from a single piece of cloth, particularly terry cloth, which is loose and flexible and self-draping.
The top edge 6 droops slightly from end to end, the bottom edge I being nearly straight. This, as illustrated in Fig. 3, gives an upward sweep on each side from the lowermost back center point while maintaining a substantially level lower hem.
The front overlap edge has an upper curvature I biased and merging at the waist line into a substantially vertical portion 9. The inner overlapped edge has a double curvature concave at the upper portion i0 and blending at about the waist line into the lower convex portion l I. This formation is determined by the edge pattern and by the gathering effect of the darts l2, l3 and I 4 tapered in each direction from the waist line area, a section at the maximum of the gathered material being indicated at Fig. 4 on line 4-4 of Fig. 1. Such back structure brings the terry cloth at the back inward in form-clinging lines (Fig. 3) hugging the waist line and draping naturally downward as material is released by the tapering of the darts l2, l3, l4.
The garment is thus brought into an upper gathered portion which fits beneath the arm pits and around the waist and a lower skirt portion l8 falling free.
The upper edge has the fastening loop and button I8 and ii, the former-being at the meeting point of edges 6 and 8 and the latter near the opposite end of the top edge 6 so that there is a desired overlap sufllcient to allow for adjustment of the button I! to comfortable form-fitting 1 Claim. (01. 2-73) snugness above and around the breast of the wearer (Fig. 2).
Similarly the waist loop 20 and button 2i conform the garment to the waist line bringing the top overlap 8 on the bias across one side of the breast infront to the waist line at'theside'and then draping the outer skirt edge substantially vertically downward with the inner skirt edge I I extending at a counter-bias around toward the front and overlaid with increasing overlap from the top toward the bottom edge.
Thus the garment forms the upper waist'por tion with the exposed overlap 8 at a bias down to the skirt where the edge 9 becomessubstantially vertical. The inner overlapped edge It extends vertically down to the skirt and there at H is biased toward the front for ample fullness.
This provides a form-fitting upper part and a free flowing skirt from even the most soft and flexible material, such as terry cloth used widely as toweling. The garment is quickly put on and fastened to serve as a bath or beach robe or negligee dressing gown.
The structure shown embodies the preferred formation from a single pieceof cloth with hemming 25 running around all of the edges. A plurality of sections may be sewed together to form the one piece structure preserving the same general construction and various decorative designs, colorings and trimmings may, of course, be added as desired.
The principle of the invention is not confined to the embodiment shown but is intended to cover such modifications thereof as fall within the scope of the appended claims.
I claim:
A one-piece sleeveless strapless garment of soft flexible cloth comprised of a panel having an upper bust-covering section adapted to fit over the breast and under the arms of the wearer with self-supporting snugness and waist and skirt sections below said bust section, top and bottom edges on said panel formed substantially straight and joined by vertical overlapped and overlapping side edges, the bust portion of the overlapping side edge extending angularly downward with increasing fullness and the waist and skirt portions of said overlapping edge extending substantially vertically downwardfrom said bust portion while said overlapped side edge at the bust portion extends vertically downward to the waist section and curves outward and downward to greater fullness at the skirt section, rear gatherings extending substantially vertically through the bust and waist sections and into the skirt section,
. :I,-Mi8,065i 3 4 fastening means comprising a top pair of ias- REFERENCES CITED f teners, one positioned at the upper end of the overlapping side edge and the other at the top edge inward from the overlapped side edge and a me of this patent second pair of fasteners at the waist section, one 5 UNITED STATES PATEN'IZS positioned at the said overlapping edge and the Number Name i Date other spaced inward from said overlapped edge. ,0 Schrank Jdly 27 1937 said gatherings and Iastenings cooperating to 2 47 255 Nelson 1939 provide form-clinging lines at the waist and bust 5, m g 1947 with the skirt edges freely draped and overlapped and the overlapping side edge at the side of the wearer.
