4 Claims.

at play which will include novel; and improved I features and characteristics designed to render the garment simple and practical in construction and inexpensive; readily andeasily applicable to and removable-from a child; conveniently manipulable while on a child to the end that functions of nature can be performed; and liable to remain in its intended position upon the body, legs and feet.

With the above objects in view, as well as others which will'appear as the specification proceeds, the invention comprises the construction, arrangement and combination of parts as now to be fully described and as hereinafter to be specifically claimed, it being understood that the disclosure herein is merely illustrative and intended in no way in a limiting sense, changes in details of construction and arrangement of parts being permissible as long as within the spirit of -the invention and the scope of the claims which follow.

In the accompanying drawings forming apart of this specification. Fig. 1 is a front view and Fig. 2 is a rear view of a garment made according to the invention as it would appear when upon a child with leg and, foot straps of the garment in vunapplied position;

Fig. 3 is an enlarged rear view of the garment corresponding generally with the disclosure .of Fig. 2, but showing a rear central flap and rear side portion of said garment as when in .unconnected and open condition; and- Figs. 4, 5 and 6 are vfragmentary perspective views each disclosing the rear side of a lower portion vof a leg member and a foot member with sole of the garment, Fig. 4 disclosing said leg and foot members as whenthe rear central flap and a lower part of the rear side portion at the corresponding side, of said garment are in unconnected, openconditicn, Fig. 5 disclosins the leg and footmembers as whensaidrear central flap and said lower'part. of saidrear' side portion are in closed, connected-condition and the corresponding leg and foot strap, is being manipulated to applied position, andFig. 6 disclosingsaid leg and foot members as when .the rear central flap and said lower part of said rear side portion are in closed, connected con-j .ditionand said corresponding leg and foot .strap is in applied, fastened position' The garment herein presented includes a pairof longitudinally extending portions; the-one rightand the other left, providing a body mem: her. [0, leg. members, denoted II and I2, re; spectively, and foot members, indicated Hand M, respectively, and said garment also includes straps 15, one of Whichis between, eachsetof contiguous leg and foot members ll, 13 and l2, M at the, correspondingside .of the garment, and a desirably seamless, fiat sole member 16. for each of the foot. members I3 and I 4..

As shown, the body member [0 .consists'of tjwo longitudinally extending, ,body covering side pieces, represented ,l l and I8, respectively, joined at the center of the front of the garment 'by1a longitudinal seam l9, although said body meniber could be constituted as a single piece of suit.- able material, and including rear sideportionsj, indicated 23 and 24, respectively, adapted to. be detachably connected along a longitudi'nal'line at the center of the rear of said garment .by fasteners 20. The body member In isopenable along the full length of the rear side portions 23 and 24,.and the fasteners .20 may be of any ordinary or preferred character. Sleeves on the body member Ill are designated 2|, and a neck band is denoted 22. I

Each of the leg members I I and I2 is constituted as a continuation of the body member 10,, and the leg members are independent ,of each other. Each of the foot members I3 and. I4 is a continuation of the leg member at the corre-'- SPQnding side of the garment. The leg and foot members ll, I3 and l2, M are adapted to cover a wearers legs and feet and each is continuou sat the frontof the garment. The leg and foot members H .and i3 are defined at the exterior sideof the rear of the garment by a rear side portion .25 which is a continuation of and extendsdownwardly and outwardly from the rear side portion 23, and the leg and foot members IZ and I4 are defined at the exterior side of the rear of said garment by a rear sideportion 26 which is a continuation of and. extends downwardly andontwardly from the rear side portion 24. Thefree, inner edges .of. the rearside portions 25 and .26

are substantially straight and extend from the lower ends of the free, inner edges of the rear side portions 23 and 24, respectively, to about the location of the rear end of the sole member 16 at the corresponding side of the garment.

The leg and foot members H, I3 and l2, M are defined at their rearward, interior sides by a rear central flap 2'! of general V-shape which also comprises a rear closure element. The interior edges of said rear central flap when in closed condition are contiguous with a lower central part of the front ofthe body member ID, as well as with said leg and foot members, the V-shape rear central flap or rear closure element extends both upwardly and outwardly to be in overlapping relation with both of the rear side portions 25 and 26 of the leg and foot members and also with lower parts of the rear side portions 23 and 24 when these are in connected relation and the rear central flap or rear closure element also is in closed condition, and the exterior edge portions of said rear central flap or rear closure element and the interior edge portions of said rear side portions 25 and 2B support complemental fasteners 28 for detachably connecting the rear central flap or rear closure element to said rear side portions 25 and26.

It will be apparent that the garment can be opened up at its rear for the full length Of the body member l and leg members and also substantially for the full length of the foot members, as in Fig. 3 of the drawings, when said garment is to be applied to or removed from a wearer. Thus the garment is adapted to be readily and easily placed upon and removed from a child. Also it will be apparent that the garment is conveniently manipulable while on a child when functions of nature are required to be performed.

The construction and arrangement will be such that the foot members I3 and M will be more or less snugly fitted to a childs shoes or feet when the garment is properly placed on the child, with the sole members I6 up against the soles of the childs shoes, or against the bottoms of the childs feet in any instance when the garment is placed on a child while not wearing shoes, and the straps are adapted to b applied in snug, encircling relation to the leg and foot members, at the meeting locations of the leg members ll, l2 with .the foot members I 3, 14, respectively, in such manner as to insure that the foot members I3 and I4 and the sole members l6 will remain in their intended, fitted positions to a childs shoes or feet.

Each strap l5 includes an intermediate part thereof secured, as at 29, to a rearward part of the garment at the location where the corresponding leg and foot members, ll, l3 or [2, 4, as the case may be, meet, and free end portions thereof adapted to be Wound about the leg and foot members, as disclosed in Figs. 5 and 6. Complemental fasteners 30 on outer end parts of the free end portions of the straps l5 can be of any ordinary or preferred construction. Desirably, an intermediate part of one of the free end portions of each strap I5 will include an opening 3| through which the other free end portion can be threaded, as in Fig. 5, and the fasteners, such as 30, when joined will be situated at the rear of the garment, as in Fig. 6, thus to be more apt to remain connected than would be the case were the fasteners situated at the front of the garment. That is, fasteners at the rear of the feet of a, creeping child are less liable to become accidentally undone than are fasteners at the front of the feet.

When the leg and foot straps [5 are applied and connected, as in Fig. 6 of the drawings, the foot members 13 and M will be fastened on a childs shoes after the fashion of ordinary rubbers, or on a childs feet after the fashion of ordinary shoes, and not liable to become displaced even by doubling up action of the child as when creeping.

In the disclosure as made, 32 indicates reinforcing pieces on the front portions of the leg members II and I2. It will be apparent that the provision of reinforcing pieces is optional.

The garment is for protectively covering a wearer, excepting the upper portion of the neck and the head. When the garment is to be applied or removed, it can be opened up for the full length of the body member 10, for the full length of the leg members ll and I2 and for substantially the full length of the foot members 13 and M. Should it be necessary to open up the rear closure element 21, as, for instance, to remove and replace a diaper, said rear closure element can be opened up to substantially completely uncover the space between the inner edges of the rear side portions 25 and 26. And when the garment is in closed condition on a child and the straps [5 are situated in their applied, fastened position, as in Fig. 6 of the drawings, said garment is liable'to remain in its intended position on the childs body, legs and feet, as will be apparent.
