The skirt portion is also provided with s?r'iall"y
variety of uses and add to the appearance of > pleated portions 3| and 32 which are -gathered

These and other objects of _ the invention Will
40 be more manifest from the following specifica
tion and drawings and more particularly set
forth in the claims.
Referring to the drawings:
Figure 1 is a front view of the garment,
Figure 2 is a rear view of the garment shown
in Fig. 1,
Figure 3 is a front pattern view,
Figure 4 is a similar View with the front por
tion opened and;
Figure 5 is a pattern view of the cape.
Referring to Figures 1 and 2 of the drawings,
there is shown a garment constituted and ar
ranged in accordance with the present inven
tion and comprises a blouse or waist portion I0
55 and a skirt II. The skirt is of the wrap type
at the waist band I2 and sewed thereto. 'I'hese
pleats may be conveniently let out when it is
desired to enlarge the skirt.
Another `important feature of the improved .
garment is the arrangement of the blouse vto
. provide a brassière for holdingl the breasts in
proper form as well as concealing the same from
View when the flapI 23 is open for inspection of 45
the abdomen of the person. The brassière is
made by gathered. portions 33 andv 34` vforming
the upper edge of the opening 22 in the blouse.`
These gathered portions are adapted to receive
a draw string 35 so that the size may be ad 50
justed as desired. The brassière as well as the
opening in garment front are completely covered
by the flap 23 when the same is secured by the
top button fasteners 24, 25 and 26.
Another important feature of a garment con,
structed and arranged in accordance with the
present invention is the provision of a cape 36
for covering the arms and shoulders. This cape
also includes a rectangular flap member 31 se
cured thereto for overlying and covering the open
ing formed by the backless portion of the blouse.
This cover portion is sewed to the inside of the
cape 36 adjacent the neck portion as indicated by '
stitching 38 so that it is free to cover the back
10 and be tucked under and be secured by the waist
band I2. The cape is further removably secured
in place by the provision of button holes 4I) and
4I on the marginal front edges.
These holes are
adapted to be engaged by buttons 24, 25 and 2B
at the front portion of the blouse so that the cape
shall be adjusted to size and convenience of the
Having thus described a clinical or maternity
garment constructed and arranged in accordance
my invention, the many features and advan
tages are as follows: The garment as shown in
Figures 1 and 2 entirely covers all parts of the
body and presents a neat and dressy appearance.
When an examination of any part of the anatomy
is desired, that part of the body may be exposed
without unduly exposing the surrounding parts.
For example, if an inspection of either or both
arms is desired, the cape may be loosened by
front bottoms 24 and 26. If an inspection of the
lil) back is desired, the cape with its flap 3'I is re
moved. Then again if the abdomen portion of
the body is to be exposed, the flap 23 is lowered
to the waist by loosening only top- buttons 24, 25
and 26. When such an examination is made, the
brassière portions 33k and 34 conceal the breasts.
If the physician desires to examine the breasts,
the vbrassière portion is loosened. In a similar
manner it will be obvious that the garment may
be opened at any principal part of the anatomy
Without unduly exposing the surrounding parts.
Another important feature of the novell gar
ment arrangement is that if the patient is too ill
to be moved, the entire garment may be removed
or changed with a minimum -amount of disturb
ance to the patient by loosening the `waist band
~‘ties I3-I4 and the neck band ties 2li-2 I.
Another important feature is that the blouse I0
and skirt I I may be made of a single piece of ma
terial, and the provision of the several pleats in
the skirt and a gathered neck band I9, the gar
