Abstract

A hospital scrub dress for use by women of varying physical dimensions. The scrub dress is straight-sided without utilizing a waist line so as to obtain greater comfort and better lines for women of varying shapes. A boat neck is employed which will fit any size neck comfortably. Easy entry to the dress is made possible by a slit shoulder on one of the sleeves. The slit is closed by flat ties. The use of such flat ties permits easy laundering and ironing with a power mangle. The upper edges of the sleeves are open so as to permit freedom of arm movement.

The scrub dress is straight-sided without utilizing a waist line so as to obtain greater comfort and better lines for women of varying shapes. A boat neck is employed which will fit any size neck comfortably. Easy entry to the dress is made possible by a slit shoulder on one of the sleeves. The slit is closed by flat ties.

1 Claim, 4 Drawing Figures HOSPITAL scRUB DRESS BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION when raising the arms. Additionally, conventional hospital scrub dresses employ buttons or snaps so as to require hand ironing.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION It is a major object of the present invention to provide a hospital scrub dress for use by female physicians, obstetrical nurses, surgical nurses, cleaning personnel and the like, of varying physical dimensions which will eliminate the aforedescribed disadvantages of conventional hospital scrub dresses.
It is another object of the present invention to provide a hospital scrub dress which is economical of construction and capable of providing a long, useful and trouble-free service life.
Other objects and advantages of the present invention will become apparent from consideration of the following description, when taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS FIG. 1 is a front perspective view of a hospital scrub dress embodying the present invention;
FIG. 2 is an enlarged broken perspective view showing the tie arrangement utilized with such hospital scrub dress;
FIG. 3 is a sectional view taken in enlarged scale along line 3-3 ofFIG. l; and
FIG. 4 is a horizontal sectional view taken in enlarged scale along line 4-4 of FIG. 1.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT Referring to the drawings, there is shown a preferred form of hospital scrub dress D embodying the present invention. The scrub dress D includes a front panel generally designated 10 and a rear panel. generally designated 12, such panels being generally mirror images of one another. The front and rear panels cooperate to define a neck opening 13 and left-hand and right-hand sleeve openings 14 and 16 of sleeves l8 and 20. The upper portion of the front and rear panels are interconnected adjacent the right-hand edge of the neck opening 13 by an overlapped seamed area 22. The sides of the front and rear panels are connected along their proximate edges by overlapped seams 24 and 26 which extend along the underside of thesleeves l8 and and thence downwardly and outwardly as shown best in FIG. 4.
The front panel 10 is provided with one or more pockets 30. Preferably, a pair of darts 32 and 34 are also provided on the front panel in the bodice portion thereof. The provision of such darts in combination with the shift styling defined by the front and rear panels make it possible for the hospital scrub dress D to fit practically any size figure without requiring a belt. The elimination of a belt is important because it is impossible to dispose the belt at the proper height for women of varying height, and where the belt is misplaced relative to a persons height the resulting appearance of the dress is most unattractive.
The sleeves 18 and 20 are of open construction along their upper edges. This arrangement affords freedom of armmovement for a woman wearing the dress. This is an important advantage, particularly when a woman is required to raise her arms.
The neck opening 13 is of the boat type. The provision of such a boat neck permits the hospital scrub dress D to comfortably fit women of varyingneck sizes.
Easy entry to the dress D is provided by means of the two pairs of ties 40, 41 and 42, 43 one element of each pair being affixed as by stitching to the upper portion of the front panel 10 and the other element of each pair being affixed to the upper portion of the rear panel 12 in alignment with one another. As indicated in FIG. 2, the ties are knotted together so as to temporarily close i the space extending from the left-hand portion of the neck opening 13 to and through the left-hand sleeve I 18. It will be apparent that the ties Inay'be readily knotted and unknottd by the woman wearing the dress.
It is an important advantage of the hospital dress D of the present invention that the ties 40, 41 and 42, 43 are flat. This permits the hospital dress to be readily laundered and then ironed by means of a power-operated mangle. Such power mangling avoids the expense of handironing as is necessary where buttons or snaps are employed, such buttons or snaps tearing the roll of a mangle. It should be noted that when the ties are tied,
the upper portion of the front panel 10 overlaps the proximate edge of the rear panel, as indicated at 45 in FIG. 2. This arrangement insures that thestraps of the wears underclothing will be completely covered on both sides of the neck opening 13;
The. aforedescribed hospital scrub dress D may be economically manufactured and will provide along, useful and trouble-free service life.
Various modifications and changes may be made with respect to the foregoing detailed description without departing from the spirit of the present invenrear panels, and ties when tied selectively closing the space between the opposite side of said neck opening and the sleeve adjacent thereto, with the material of one of said panels overlapping the material of the other panel when said ties are tied; and v 5 darts provided on the bodice portion of said front panel whereby said dress may fit various sized figures without requiring a belt.
