INFANTS GARMENT Filed March 13, 1947 Patented Jan. 16, 195i INFANTS GARMENT Edward A. Sheridan, Pawtucket, R. L, assignor to Vesta Underwear Company, a corporation of Rhode Island Application March 13, 1947, Serial No. 734,405
4 Claims.
, 1 The present invention relates to garment manufacture, and has particular reference to a novel construction for undergarments such as infants training pants.
The principal object of the invention is to provide a snug fitting pants which has different portions adapted to stretch in different directions, whereby a betterfit is obtained and free and unrestrained movement of the infant is permitted.
Another object of the invention is to provide an infants training pants which has its upper portion stretchable laterally to snugly grip the waist, which has its sides also stretchable laterally to fit the thighs, and which has its body stretchable vertically, the parts being arranged to cooperatively stretch and snugly fit when the garment is worn.
A further object is to utilize a small number of readily manufactured parts which are readily sewed together to provide a comfortable infants garment.-
With the above and other objects and advantageous features in view, the invention consists of a novel arrangement of parts more fully disclosed in the detailed description following, in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, and more specifically defined in the claims appended thereto.
In the drawings:
Fig. 1 is a front elevation of the novel infants garment;
Fig. 2 is a rear elevation thereof;
Fig. 3 is a side view thereof;
Fig. 4 is'a plan view of the blank for forming the body portion of the garment;
Fig. 5 is a plan view of the front upper buttoning strip;
Fig. 6 is a plan view of one of the two side portions; and
the rear may be readily pulled down. To this end, I utilize a body blank which is folded to 'form the front, the crotch, and the back of the garment, and two cooperating side pieces which join the respective contiguous edges of the front and back. I also provide an upper front strip which is preferably reinforced and serves as a button receiving or as an attaching strip for pinning to the lower portion of an infants shirt, and
an upper rear waist engaging strip which freely stretches laterally but has substantially no verall times, except when it becomes desirable to u uncover part of the infants body, at which time the waist. in number, cooperate together when sewed to ,form fit the infant.
tical stretch, and which serves to drawthe parts together at the infants back so as to snugly grip The parts, which are relatively few the front and rear portions being shaped to provide leg openings IE, H which preferably have ribbed edgings I8, I9. The garment includes an upper front strip 20 which is reinforced and has button holes 2 I, and an upper rear strip 22 which extends above the front portion II and is joined to the sides.
An elastic tape 23 is utilized to finish the upper edges of the side portions and the upper rear strip.
The front portion II and the integral rear .portion I2 and crotch I3 are made of material ,which is freely stretchable vertically, but has substantially no lateral or side stretch. The sides I4, I5 and the upper rear strip 22 are made of material which is freely stretchable laterally, but ;has substantially no vertical stretch, and the elastic tape 23 may be of any standard construction, but preferably includes an elastic in- ,sert having shirred covering of standard type. The upper front strip 20 is formed of two portions folded over to provide doubled strip,
and may if desired be reinforced by means of an intermediate textile strip, to form a strong, nonstretchable base for the button holes 2|, see Fig. 1, and for receiving holding pins for pinning the pants to the lower portion of an infants shirt.
The novel garment is readily manufactured from a. small number of parts, which are illustrated in Figs. 4 to "I. A body blank 24 islcut as shown in Fig. 4 to provide a curved upper'front edge 25, outwardly curved front sides 26,021, inwardly curved crotch sides 28, 29, and outwardly curved rear sides 30, 3| and a curved upper rear edge 32, the material being stretchable vertically but having substantially no lateral or side stretch. Two side piece blanks 33 are provided, shaped as shown in Fig. 6, each having an upper slightly curved edge 34, an outwardly curved front edge 35, an outwardly curved rear edge 36, and an inwardly curved and downwardly sloping bottom edge 31. An upper-front strip-blank'38, cut as illustrate'din Fig. 5, is adapted to be folded over along its longitudinal median 39, to form the upper front strip shown i Fig. 1, which has a straight upper edge 4% and a rounded loweredge 4|. An upper rear strip blank 42 is also'provided, cut as illustrated in Fig. 7, with a straight upper edge 43 and a rounded lower edge. Suitable edging, preferably of the ribbed type, is utilized to finish the leg openings I6. and I].
The parts are assembled and sewed together as illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2, preferably withfiat lock stitching 45 whichimay be reinforced if dersired whereby theupper front strip has its lower ,edge:sewed to the upper front edge of the body portion, and itssides sewed to thecontiguous edges of the ,side pieces, the upper rear portion ihaszitsllower edge sewed to the upper rear edge ofe-thebodyiportion and .its sides sewed to the contiguous edges-of the side pieces, and the side ,pieceshavetheirside edges. sewed tothe contig- :uousiside edges of theifrontportion and therear portion.
.iAlthough :1 have described the invention as .specificallylembodied in aninfants pants, it is ,bhvi'ous that the invention may be applied to .;other undergarments, and that the size, shape, arrangement and material of theparts may be readily changed to meet requirements for different ,undergarment designs, without departing from'the spirit and the scope .of the invention as "deiinedinthe appended claims.
