GARMENT

Application. February 18, 1238, Serial No. 191,136
2 Claims.
This invention relates to wearing apparel and
more particularly to skirted garments and other
garments which are adjustable in length or which
have parts of adjustable length.
In reference to skirted garments such as, for
5
example, slips, petticoats, dresses, vetc., it is de
sirable to make provision for adjusting the length
of such garments without the necessity for re
hemming and re-stitching the edges thereof. It
is also desirable to obviate the necessity_for cut
ting the garment in order to reduce the length
thereof. Accordingly, it is an object of the pres
(Cl. 2-243)
Fig. 2 is an enlarged sectional view on the line
2-2 of Fig. 1;.
'
’
Fig. 3 is an enlarged outer view of the lower
part of the garment showing the chain stitch
ing illustrating the attachment between the ad
jacent removable parts;
Fig. 4 is an inner view of the part shown in
Fig. 3.
Referring now to the drawing in detail, the
garment l0, here shown as a slip, by way of il-' 10
iustration, comprises the skirted portion I2 which
is adjustablein length in accordance with the
ent invention to provide a garment which can be present invention. For this purpose, the lower
readily adjusted in length without cutting ‘the portion of said skirt comprises a plurality of 15
same and without re-hemming or re-stitching - parts, here shown as three, disposed lengthwise of
the shortened garment.
The above object'of the invention and other
objects ancillary thereto are accomplished in ac
cordance with the preferred embodiment of the
20 invention by providing the skirted or other por
tion of the garment which is intended to be ad
justable in length with a plurality of attached
parts, each having a hemmed or otherwise suit
able ?nished outer edge which de?nes the outer
25 edge of the garment in each length thereof.
Said parts are arranged in the garment in re
movable relation in such a manner that the
outermost part can be readily removed from the
adjacent inner part without cutting the garment
between said parts, or otherwise cutting the same.
In accordance with the preferred embodiment
of the invention, the securement between the re
movable parts comprises lines of chain stitching
which not only normally attaches the parts to
r gether in secure fashion, but are readily remov
able by withdrawing the same from said parts
in a predetermined direction. The ends of each
line of chain stitching are locked together in
any suitable way whereby said line of stitching
40 is secured against unravelling, and for this pur
pose, the stitching of the side seam of the gar
ment is extended through the lines of chain
stitching at the ends of the latter, although it will
be understood that the ends of said lines of
45 chain stitching may be fastened in any suitable
way whereby to prevent unintended unravelling
of said stitching.
For a more complete understanding of the in
vention, reference is to be had to the accompany
ing drawing forming a part of the present speci?
cation.
In the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a front view of a skirted garment, such
as
a slip, embodying the present invention;
55
the garment and extending circumferentially
thereof completely therearound. The loweredge
of the skirt portion i2 and the lower edge of each
of the parts l4, I6 and I8 are provided with nar
row inturned hems 20, each secured in position 20
by a permanent line of stitching 22. The inner
most removable part I4 is secured to the hem 20
of skirt portion I2 by a line of chain stitching
24. Said part I4 is positioned in overlapping
relation to the outer marginal edge portion of
skirt l2 on the inner side of the garment at the
hem 20 thereof, and the line of chain stitching
24 is arranged so that it passes through said
overlappededge portions preferably just below
stitching 22. Part I6 is similarly connected to
part l4 and part It! is similarly connected to
part it. The side seam 28 extends longitudi
nally of the garment and the stitching thereof
passes through parts i4, i6 and I8, crossing the
lines of chain stitching 24 for preventing un
ravelling thereof. As seen from Figs. 3 and 4,
the loops 2,5 of the chain stitching are on the in
side of the garment and the connecting thread
portions 21 are on the outside of the garment,‘
40
but this may be reversed.
For shortening the garment to the desired
length, one or more of the parts i8, i6 and i4 may
be readily removed, as may be necessary, by
withdrawing the line or lines of chain stitching
between adjacent parts as may be desired de
pending upon the amount the garment is to be
shortened. Thus, for example, if the garment is
to be shortened by the amount equal to the width
of part i8, said part is removed from the gar
ment by withdrawing the line of chain stitching
24 which secures said part to the adjacent part
of It. This is readily accomplished in a well
understood manner and. the parts are readily
separated by thus withdrawing said line of chain
stitching, except where said stitching is locked to 55
2

side seam 28 which, however. can also be readily
removed to the extent necessary in a well under
stood manner for completely releasing part I!
from part it. For further decreasing the length
of the garment, the parts l6 and I4‘ can be simi
larly detached merely by withdrawing their re
spective lines of chain stitching and by detach
ing the ends of said stitching from the side seam
28. Itmay be noted that due to the construction
,10 of chain stitching, the latter is readily un
ravelled by drawing the thread in one direction to
unloop the same, but cannot be unravelled when
the thread is drawn in the opposite direction
longitudinally oi’ the line of stitching. Accord
16 ingly, in withdrawing the chain stitching for re
leasing the removable parts from each other, it
is necessary to draw the thread of the stitching
in the direction to unravel the same, this being
well- understood by those familiar with the ap
20 parel art. It will be noted that upon separating
each of the removable parts, a ?nished outer edge
is left on the garment thus shortened by the
removal of one or more said parts, since the
outer edge of the remaining part provided with
25 the hem 20 is undisturbed. While I have shown
the garment provided with three removable parts
for adjusting the length thereof, it will be under
stood that the number of said parts may be more
or less than that shown, and it will be understood
30 also that the width of said parts may be the same
or may be different from each other.
Thus, it is seen that the construction herein
shown and described is well adapted to ac
complish the objects of the present invention. It
will be understood. however, that while I have dis
closed the preferred embodiment of the invention
and have illustrated the same in reference to a
lady's slip, the invention may be embodied in
other garments or parts thereof for readily ad
40 Justing the length thereof, and that in the illus
trated embodiment certain changes in the con
struction and arrangement of parts may be made.
Therefore, I do not wish to be limited precisely to
the embodiment of the invention as described
herein, except as may be required by the ap
pended claims considered with reference to the
prior art.
Having thus described my invention, what I
claim and. desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A skirted garment comprising a skirt por
tion of a desired length, said skirt portion having
a finished outer hemmed edge, and a part adding
to the length of the garment attached to and
projecting downwardly beyond said hemmed 10
edge, the upper marginal edge of said part be
ing disposed in overlapping relation to said
hemmed edge, and a line of chain stitching pass
ing through said overlapped marginal edge of said
part and throughsaid hemmed edge and extend
ing substantially parallel to said hemmed edge for
securing said skirt portion and said part to
gether, said hemmed edge being fastened by a
line of permanent stitching therethrough inde—
pendently of said added part, said line of chain 20
stitching having its ends normally fastened in
position and being removable from the garment
to release said part from said skirt portion.
2. A skirted garment comprising a skirt por
tion of a desired length, said skirt portion hav-.
ing a ?nished'outer hemmed edge, and a part
adding to the length of the garment attached
to and projecting downwardly beyond said
hemmed edge, the upper marginal edge of said
part being disposed in overlapping relation to ‘
said hemmed edge, and a line of chain stitching
passing through said overlapped marginal edge
of said part and through said hemmed edge and
extending substantially parallel to said hemmed
edge for securing said skirt portion and said part
together, said hemmed edge being fastened by a
line of permanent stitching therethrough inde
pendently of said added part, said added part
having a side seam which crosses said line of
chain stitching and holds the same in position, 40
said chain stitching being removable from the
garment, upon severing one of the chain loops,
to release said part from said skirt portion.
