UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

COLLINS ARNOLD, OF ALBANY, NElV YORK.

NlGHT-DRAWERS.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No 569,483, dated October 13, 1896.

Application filed April 2, 1896, Serial No. 585,865. (No model.)

To It whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, COLLINS ARNOLD, a citizen of the United States, residing at Albany, county of Albany, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Night-Drawers, of which the following is a specification.

The invention relates to such improvements; and it consists of the novel construction and combination of parts hereinafter described and subsequently claimed.

Reference may be had to the accompanying drawings and the letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

Similar letters refer to similar parts in the several figures therein.

Figure 1 is a view in front elevation of my improved night-drawers placed on a form. Fig. 2 is a side view of a piece of fabric cut to form the upper, front and back, and counters of the boot portion with the leg broken away, the front and back being bent to the form of a boot-leg.- Fig. 3 is a similar view of the opposite side, showing the side goreseam, reinforcing counter-piece, and with the outer sole on the upper side of the upper and the inner sole on the under side of the upper. Fig. 4 is a cross-section taken at 4 4 in Fig. 2. Fig. 5 is a cross-section taken at 5 5 in Fig. 3. Fig. 6 is a cross-section taken at 6 (3 in Fig. Fig. 7 is a side elevation of the boot portion finished and wrong side out. Fig. 8 is a crosssection taken at 8 8 in Fig. 7.

The upper portion of my improved nightdrawers maybe any of the well-known forms provided with the legs A A. Each leg terminates in a foot-covering or boot B.

In Fig. l I have shown my improved garment as a whole. In the other figures the leg portions are broken away for convenience of illustration. Of the boot portion the front B, upper 13*, back B and counters B and are formed in one piece, as shown in Fig. 2. A gore is cut out between the front and back, so that when the front and back are united by the side seams the lower or ankle portion is made of less diameter than the upper leg.

B represents the short side seam which unites the edges 13 and B where the gorepiece is cut out. The seam on the opposite side which unites the edges B and B extends upward the length of the leg in the usual manner and is not shown.

A piece of fabric 0 of the same shape as the upperis superposed upon the upper, and a similarly-shaped piece O is applied to the under side of the upper, so that the toe and side edges of the three plies of fabric coincide and register with each other. These edges are secured together by a line of stitching C The plies so secured along their edges are then turned out betweenethe upper and the superposed ply, which brings the plies into the relative position shown in Figs. 7 and 8. The superposed ply becomes the outer sole and the other similarly-shaped ply the inner sole. The edges of the two sole-pieces or plies become introverted, as seen in Fig. 8, and the edge of the upper is inclosed between and secured to these introverted edges. Such a form of construction conceals the edges of the respective plies and the line of stitching which unites them between the sole-plies, so that there-is no exposed seam on either the outer or inner side of the boot. The lower edges of the oppositely-located counters are secured together by a line of stitching O, as seen in Fig. 5, to form the heel.

C and (J are reinforcing-counters, which are similarly secured together by stitching C The rear edges of the sole-plies are then secured to the vertical edges of the counters by the line of stitching C while the boot is wrong side out, as seen in Fig. 7. The boot is then turned right side out, as seen in Fig. 1.

An important adjunct of my invention consists in providing a foot-opening D at the junction of the leg and foot portions, preferablyinthefront. Thisopeningiscutthrough the fabric, and its edges are provided with some well-known form of facing D, and with a series of buttonholes D in one fly of the opening adapted to receive buttons D secured to the opposite fly of the opening.

The object of the opening is to permit the boot to be removed from the foot and the foot to be protruded through the opening without removing the drawers from the legs.

My improved drawers are especially adapted for night use by children. The lower extremities are certain of protection independently of the bedclothing, and when the wearer leaves the bed the feet are fully protected by the double soles While upon the floor of the room.

By protruding the feet through the respective foot-openings the feet and ankles can be clothed with stockings preparatory to dressing before the drawers are removed, so that it is wholly unnecessary to place the bare feet upon the comparatively cold floor; or the feet may be protruded through such openings while in bed if uncomfortably warm.

By concealing the seams between the two soles only a smooth inner surface comes in contact with the feet, and the outer side is provided with an o rnam en tal and finished appearance.

What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

Night-drawers having leg portions each terminating in a foot-covering or boot composed of several pieces of cut fabric, one piece comprising the upper and counters, another piece the inner sole, and the third piece the outer sole, having the edge of the upper inclosed between and secured by a line of stitching to the introverted side and toe edges of the inner and outer soles, and having the rear edges of the soles secured to the edges of the counters by a line of stitching, substantially as described.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand this 7th day of January, 1896.

COLLINS ARNOLD.
