Application January 23, I948, Serial'NofBfQl'B Claims.

1 This invention relates to new and useful improvements in womens apparel, and, more particularly, aims to provide a novel and valuable upper garment, as one of the blouse or pull-over sweater type, so formed that any one of a multiplicity of pleasing arrangements can be made, at

the will and acco ding to the flair of the wearer for decorative originality, merely by differently draping the front upper portion of the garment. The new garment can be made to be worn as a blouse, sweater or other bodice unit, with the lower portion thereof inside or outside the skirt;

or otherwise constituted, as will later be pointed out.

By the invention a garment is provided Which such, for instance, as one or more pieces of costume jewelry.

According to the invention, essentially, a garment is so made that centrally of the sleeve open- :in'gs there is provided a neck opening characterized by a nape of the neck engaging smaller portion at the back of the garment and by a very much larger portion at the front of the garment. .As a result, the garment has a bust overlying exceedingly full frontal portion which is variously drapable and otherwise arrangeable pursuant to the invention. The number of widely different decorative arrangements of this full frontal portion is without limit, as will be made plain hereinafter. For purposes of illustration, a garment will be shown and described which is in the form of a sleeveless blouse made from two out pieces of material, and in that connection some of the possible different decorative arrangements thereof will be explained; but, as will be understood, the invention is not to be thus limited.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawings forming a material part of this disclosure:

Fig. 1 shows the piece of material to form the front of the garment, with this piece cut to include marginal portions, as indicated in dot and dash lines, for being folded over and in certain 2 cases stitched in place as also indicated inrt-his view, preparatory to stitching together saidpiece and the complem'entalypiec'e trY-forx'nth'e' bacl'r'of the garment.

Fig. 2 is a view similartdliig. 1,. showing the piece last mentioned.

Fig. 3' side elevation'ally shows the garment made from the pieces of material illustrated: in Figs. 1 and 2', on the'body of a woman, with the full upper portion of the piece of- Fig. -1 drawn forwardly to its maximum limit of distention without stretching the material.

4' is atop plan view of the garment asarranged in Fig. 3 as such garment would otherwise conform itself to the-female figure.

Figs. 5 through i i are all like views, each showing in frontal perspective the garment on the body portion of a headless manikin, but each showing one of some of the many possible deco-- rative arrangements aforeside.

Referring to the drawings more in detail, the garment illustrated comprises a front section 20 and a back section 2!.

The front section 28, when finished, isapproximately of T-outline,- having a top edge Z2 which may be straight. Beyond each end' of said top edge is a substantially triangular lateral extension 23 bounded byan upper outwardly downwardly inclined edge 24 and a lower downwardly inwardly inclined edge 25. Near their vlower limits said edges 25 merge with the preferably slightly curvilinearly extending upper portions it oflower side edges 2"! joined at their lower ends by a bottom edge '28 which, substantially paralleling the top edge 22, may also be'straight. I

As in this instance shown, the Tforrn-of the front section 28 may be said to be made upof a staff portion bounded by the top edge 22, the lower substantially straight portions of the side edges 2'! and upward prolongations of the-latter toward said top edge; with the bar'of the T established by and between the lateral extensions 23. As will also be noted, the maximum width of the section 29 is greater than its maximum height.

Preparatory to seaming the front section 20 with the rear section 25, the section 20 is desirably out to provide marginal portions as shown in dot and dash lines, to be folded over as illustrated at 29, 36, 3 3, 3!, 3i and -32; the preferred stitchings, to anchor some only of these to the main portion of the section, being indicated at.-33.

The rear section 2 5, while also: presenting near its top oppositely extending triangularside zextensions 34, is approximately of generally rectangular shape, of about the same height as maximum width, but somewhat greater in height than in width if the side extensions be disregarded.

Said section 2! has a top edge 35, desirably slightly downwardly arched, this to form the part of the neck opening in the completed garment to engage the nape of the neck of the wearer, and very much shorter than the top edge 22 of the section 26. Descending from the opposite ends of said top edge are the upper edges 36 of said side extensions 34, the lower edges of said extensions being designated 31. Below the side extensions 34 are opposite side edges 38, joined at their lower end by a bottom edge 39, which is shown as straight.

Preparatory to seaming this back section H with the front section 26, the section 2| is also desirably cut to provide marginal portions as shown in dot and dash lines, to be folded over as illustrated at 46, 4!, 4|, 42, 42 and 43; the preferred stitchings, to anchor some only of these to the main portion of the section, being indicated at 44.

The two sections 20 and 2| are suitably stitched together, to complete the garment, viz: The edge 24 at each side of the section 26 to an edge 36 of the section 2|, to form inside shoulder seams as indicated at in Figs. 3 and 4, and the lower side edge 26-21 at each side of the section 26 to a lower side edge 38 of the section 2 I, to form two inside side seams as indicated at 46 in Fig. 3, thereby to provide arm openings 41. As will be understood, the edges 24, 25 and 2621 of the section 26 are of the same lengths, respectively, as the edges 36, 31 and 38 of the section 2|.

Before the front upper fullness of the garment, which fullness may be called its low hanging drape, is arranged in any of the ways possible, such, for instance, as variously shown in Figs. 5 through l4, an extremely large neck opening 2235 is present, making the garment a pull-over one.

In Fig. 5 an arrangement to give a very low V-neck is shown as efiected by the use of a single pin or clasp 48.

In Fig. 6 a medium 10w ruflied or jabot effect is shown as established by the use of one or more pins or clasps now hidden.

In Fig. 7 a collarette effect atop a slenderized deep V opening is shown as obtained by the use of a pin or clasp 49 applied high up on the 4 drape resembling the top of a high apron, effected by the aid of a pair of pins or clasps 54.

In Fig. 13 is illustrated a high neck line, below which are ruflles partially at the front of the garment, but mainly toward one shoulder, this effected by the aid of a pin or clasp 55.

In Fig. 14 is shown another high neck line, below which are two sets of ruffles 56', established by the aid of two pins or clasps 56.

A multitude of other easily made and equally strikingly attractive variations, each providing a garment which appears to the onlooker to be a separate wardrobe piece, could be illustrated.

As will be understood, the usual or any desired shoulder pads, such as those indicated at 57 in Fig. 4, may be used with the garment; also, the garment may be provided with sleeves of any length and/or with other additions, such, for instance, as decorative adjuncts at the neck line or elsewhere; also, the bodice member may be part of a single garment having a permanently incorporated skirt.

It is to be understood that this neck arrangement may be used in any garment such as blouse, sweater, etc.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

In Fig. 8 is illustrated an arrangement to give a high neck line above a central pleating, achieved by the aid of a pin or clasp 56.

Fig. 9 shows a very low and wide neck front attended by rufile lines running around the front and sides of the neck and held in place by two pins or clasps 5i In Fig. 10 is shown a high neck opening with the garment material folded into a fairly large flap 52' converging to a side point and toward one shoulder reefer-fashion, effected by the aid of a pair of pins or clasps 52.
