V. E. DIXON Aug. 7, 1951 INFANTS GARMENT Filed Ma 16, 1946 W mman Patented Aug. 7', 1 951 UNITED STATES PATENT .O'FFICE v 1 2,563,161 .5, g INFANTS GARMENT Victoria E. Dixon, StJPauI, Minn. I

f App licationlYIay 1c, 1946., Serial No. 670,050

Coverall garments for use by infants have the advantage of completely covering the infant to protect the infant from the cold. However, such garments are inconvenient to use as they must ordinarily be removed at intervals for changing'the 2Claims. (01. 2-40) diapers of the infant." Furthermore thesega'rments must often be changed atfrequent intervals as 'they'oftentimes become wet from contact with the diapers. As a result sleeping garments of the gown type which are somewhat more convenient to use, but which provide less protection for t'he'infant, are usually used. It is the object of the present invention'to provide a coverall garment for infants which is so designed as to cover the body and legs of the infant almost completely. The garment is so arranged, however, that the legs of the infant may be withdrawn from the garment to permit the changing of diapers without removing the upper portion of the garment.

A feature of the present invention lies in the provision of a coverall garment which includes an enlarged opening over the buttocks of the infant so as to permit the legs of the garment to be simply removed from the legs of the infant.

A feature of the present invention lies in providing a garment having an aperture over the area at the rear of the infant normally covered by the diaper. As a result the outer garment does not become wet through contact with the diapers of the infant, thereby eliminating the necessity for frequently changing the outer garment.

A feature of the present invention lies in the provision of an infants coverall garment which covers all of the body and legs of the infant not previously covered by the diaper, thereby protecting the infant from cold.

These and other objects and novel features of my invention will be more clearly and fully set forth in the following specification and claims.

In the drawings forming a part of my specification:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of an infant wearing my coverall garment.

Figure 2 is a diagrammatic view showing the legs of the infant withdrawn from the legs of the garment so that the diaper may be changed.

Figure 3 is an elevation view of the front of the garment showing the construction thereof.

Figure 4 is an elevation view of the rear of the garment showing the construction thereof.

The garment A includes a-closed front portion 'Hl having a neck opening I I at its upper extrem 'ity and extending to formlegs l2 and I3. The

front panel I fl is providedwith rear orback panels I4 and I5 integral therewith or stitched thereto. The front panelIB and the rear panels I4 and I5 maybe cut from a single piece of material, or may be composed of two or three separate panels connected together along a seam. V

Leg portions IS- and IIare connected to theleg portions I3. and I2, respectively. and are integral therewith or attachedthereto along suitable seams. The legs of the garment are tubular in .form and are provided with foot enclosing ends I9 and '20 in the preferred form of construction. Each foot enclosing portion acts to close the end of a tubularlegportion 'sothat in preferred form the entire legs an'd feet of the garment are effectively enclosed.

Sleeves 2I and 22 are provided at the upper extremity of the garment, these sleeves being tubular in form and being connected to the front and rear panels Ill, I4, and I5 in any suitable manner as by stitching 23 and 24. The sleeves 2| and 22 may be sufiiciently long to cover the entire arms of the infant, or may be somewhat shorter if desired, the length of the sleeve and the construction thereof having no part of the present invention.

The rear panels I4 and I5 are separate and the garment is secured in place about the body of the infant by drawing the free edges 25 and 26 of the panels I5 and I4 together. To accomplish this result some means is provided for securing the panels I4 and I5 together, such as the ties 21 secured near the edge of the panel I4 and the cooperable ties 29 secured near the edge of the panel l5. By tieing each tie 21 to its corre sponding tie 29, the garment may be pulled together in the back to enclose the back of the infant. While the ties illustrated are extremely practical and have certain advantages other fastening means for fastening the panels I4 and I5 may be used in place of the same.

The rear panel I4 is cut away at 300 and the rear panell5 is similarly cut away at 3| to expose the rear of the diaper over the buttocks of the infant. In other words, while the free edges of the panels I4 and I5 cpme together or overlap between the waist portion of the garment and the neck opening, the panels are cut away so as to leave the garment open at the seat portion. The front panel I0 is likewise notched at the crotch portion 32 so that the garment does not come together in the crotch. This does not expose the infant, as this portion of the infant is normally 3 covered with a diaper. Ties 33 and 34 encircle the legs of the garment near the foot enclosing ends l9 and 20 thereof, these ties preferably being attached to the garment at a point intermediate their ends as indicated at 35 and 38. When the garment is being worn as indicated in Figure 1 of the drawings the ties 33 and 34 encircle the ankles of the infant to hold the legs of the garment encircling the legs of the infant, However, when it is desired to remove the leg portions of the garment, it is only necessary to untie the ties 33 and 34 whereupon the legs of the infant may be withdrawn from the legs of the garment as illustrated in Figure 2 of the drawings. The garment may then be folded upwardly and the lower portion of the body of the infant is exposed so that the diaper may be easily changed.

4 the following claims without departing from the spirit of my invention.

I claim:

1. An infant's garment comprising a body enclosing portion having tubular leg portions connected thereto, said garment having an open seat and crotch, the front of the garment being closed substantially to the crotch, and the rear of the garment being open through the major portion of its width at the seat, and means for securing said leg portions about the ankles of the infant. '2. A coverall garment for enclosing the body and legs of an infant including a body encircling portion and tubular leg enclosing portions con- From the foregoing explanation it is believed obvious that the rear portion of the garment is cut away so as to not contact the rear of the diaper. This construction has the dual advantage of permitting removal of the lower part of the garment in the manner described without uncovering the upper portion of the infant and also not being spaced from contact with the portion of the diaper through which moisture may pass. As a result the outer garment A does not get wet from contact with the diaper and need not be changed at frequent intervals.

In accordance with the patent statutes, I have described the principles of construction and operation of my infants garment, and while I have endeavored to set forth the best embodiment thereof, I desire to have it understood that obvious changes may be made within the scope of nected thereto, said leg enclosing portions providing an unbroken enclosure, ties on said leg enclosing portions for encircling the ankles, said body portion having a substantially closed front and an open seat, theg seat portion being open throughout the major portion of its width.

VICTORIA E. DIXON.
