Y., assignor to Gerted Corporation, a corporation 01’ New York Application February 27, 1937, Serial No. 128,063 2Claims. (Cl. 2-43) The present invention relates to ladies’ gar ments, and more particularly to ladies’ garments of the sleeveless type, both outer and under gar ments, and of every conceivable size, such as slips, 5 vests, chemises, gowns, pajamas, and other simi lar articles of apparel, and it has for its object to provide garments of the character described which are simple in construction, consisting of butfew parts, all out along substantially straight 10 line, which parts, when assembled, will form a garment that will be of superior fit, draping itself naturally, snugly and smoothly around the upper part of the body and falling evenly and straight~ along the lower part of the body. 15 It is a further object of the present invention to provide garments ‘of the character described which will eliminate the sagging under the arms which is common in many of the garments of the same type heretofore in use, due to the presence 20 of vertical seams along the sides of those gar ments, under the'arms. These objects of the present invention and other advantages are obtained by a new and novel pattern or patterns according to which the com 25 ponent parts of the garments of the present in ‘ vention are cut and assembled. More speci?cally, these objects are accomplished by providing the garments of the present invention, at their upper ' edges, with two substantially horizontally dis 30 posed, substantially rectangular or oblong mem bers, each extending from substantially the center of the front of the garment to substantially the center of the back of the garment, one under each arm, and from which and in relation to 35 which the other parts forming the lower portion of the garment are substantially vertically dis posed. These horizontally disposed, oblong members, to which I shall hereinafter refer as wing mem 40 bers, may be separate from the remaining gar ment portions or gores or they may be integral with one of them, such as the front garment por tion, and they serve as a substantial part of the‘ bodice portion of the garment and to support the 45 remaining garment gores which are sewed. to them. In the accompanying drawings illustrating pre ' \ferred embodiments of the garments of the pres ent invention, '50 ‘ 1 and 2; . Fig. 4 is a plan view or a pattern of slip made in accordance with another embodiment of the present invention; and Fig. 5 is a fragmentary view of part of the pat tern of Fig. 4, showing an alternate shape for the gusset and front member which will provide for Gil more room in the bodice portion for more de veloped busts. . ' Figures 1, 2, and 3 of the drawings illustrate a garment having the wings, G’ and G" integral 10 with a front member, F, which extends from the neckline of the garment, Hi, to its lower edge, ll. These wings G’ and G” extend laterally 1,, from the upper end of the member F, one to each side thereof, preferably somewhat diagonally downwardly, to allow for the usual di?erence in height between the front part of the garment and the back thereof. These wings extend around the 0 sides of the garment and the free ends thereof terminate at substantially the center of the back of the garment. The upper edges of the wings G’ and G", l3’ and I3", respectively, are continuous with' the 25 neckline of the garment, and these wings also have the outer edges, l4’ and I4", respectively, which are substantially at right angles to the up— per edges, and the lower edges I 5' and 15'', re spectively. ' 30 Two side members S’ and S" are provided, having, respectively, the upper edges, I5’ and. 15'', which may be sewed by seams IE to the lower edges, l5’ and 15" of the wings; the side edges I 2' and I2", which may be sewed by the 35 seams I2 to the similarly numbered side edges of the member F, and the side edges l6’ and I6" which may be sewed by the seams 16 to the cor respondingly numbered edges of the back mem ber B which has a tapering upper end with sides 40 It’ and M" which tapered upper end ?ts into the angle formed by the sides’ outer edges M' and I 4" of the wings G’ and G", respectively, the corresponding edges of the tapered end of the back portion and of the wings being sewn 45 together by the seam M. The wings extend around the sides of the body and under the arms, with the free ends of the Fig. 1; wing terminating at substantially the center of the back of the garment. The opposite ends of 50 the wing may meet one another and be stitched together, or as shown in the drawings, the free ends of the wings are disposed in downwardly diverging relation to accommodate the tapered ' Fig. 3 is a plan view or a pattern of the com upper end portion of the back piece. Fig. 1 is a front view of a slip made in accord ance with one of the embodiments of the present invention; Fig. 2 is a rear View of the garment shown in 55 ponent members of the garment shown in Figs. — 2 2,105,605 In order to permit the bodice portion of the garment described above to accommodate full ness of the bust, notches, l1, may be provided at the juncture of each wing with the side of the member F, the edges of which notches may be stitched together before assembling the garment, which will result in the shaping of the garment front in the desired manner. , After the garment is assembled as described 10 above, the upper edges thereof and the lower edge thereof may be ?nished in the usual manner, either by a seam, tape, lace or the like, and it may be provided with the shoulder straps, [8, if desired. . It is'to be understood that the upper edge of the garment may be cut in any desired manner to provide the desired type of neckline, both front and back, such as V, shaped, ‘round, scalloped, or ‘the like, and that the vertical edges of the front, 20 side and back members may also be cut in any desired shape to give the garment the desired shaping around the waist and the desired style, in general. In the garment shown in Fig. 4 of the draw.~ 25 ings, the gussets G’. and G", instead of being integral with the front member F, are separate portions of ,the garment, which makes it con venient for use with two gores instead of the four gores used in the garment ?rst described, namely 30 the front ‘gore, F and the back gore B. In this type of garment the gussets, G’ and G" are sub stantially rectangular and are also disposed, pref erably, substantially diagonally downwardly away from the center of the garment, and are each 35 provided with the inner edges, l9’ and [9”, re of the gussets which are not taken up by the correspondingly numbered edges of the front member F. The edges 22' and 22" of both the gussets and the front member may be modi?ed by providing protrusions, 24, which have the effect, when the garment portions are sewn together to give a full ness to the bodice portion of the garment to ac commodate any fullness of the breast that may be desired. And it may here-be stated that any of 10 the vmodifications of the general shape of the garment, or of the finish of its edges may be made with this type of garment as with the one ?rst described herein. And it may here further be stated that the number of gores that may be used in the construction of the garments of the present invention is not necessarily limited to two or four, but that any number from one up, may be used, and that other modi?cations and variations may be made in the garments of the present invention, without the use of the inven tive faculties and within the spirit and scope of the present invention, for all of which I desire the protection of the patent laws.
