Our invention relates to improvements in uni forms, dresses and like garments, and the object of the invention is, in a garment having itsf skirt front divided, to provide overlapping portions which may be reversed in position, to device an upper or blouse portion having its front over lapped to correspond in position with the over lapping of the skirt at each side its vertical centre, and a means for detachably securing the over lapped blouse portion in either of such overlap' ping positions, and it consists essentially of the arrangement and construction of parts all as hereinafter more particularly explained. Fig. 1 is a front elevation of our garment, por tions being broken away to exhibit the construc tion thereof. Fig. 2 is a plan sectional view on line 2-2 Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view on line 3-3 Fig. 1. 20 Fig. 4 is a transverse sectional view on line 4f4 Fig. 3. Fig. 5 is an enlarged perspective vdetail of the button strip. In the drawing like letters of -reference indi cate corresponding parts in the different views. I indicates the upper or blouse portion of a garment and 2 the skirt portion. The b-louse por tion I is divided to form overlapping portions IX and Io so as to provide for a vertical centre open 30 mg. (Cl. 2-74) portion IX of the blouse overlaps the portion I0. If it is desired to reverse the garment, the but tons 6 are removed from the button holes 3 and 4 so that the strip 5 is detached from the garment and yet will hold the buttons together. The tie 8 is withdrawn from the slot 8X and the skirt ex tension 'I is folded to the outside of the extension 6, the portion I 0 of the blouse then overlying the portion IX in the reverse position to that which it previously assumed. The button strip is then 10 placed at the back of the overlapping portions IX and I0 and the buttons passed through the button holes 3 and 4. When this is done, the tie 9 is' passed through the slotted opening 9X and passed with the tie 8 15 to the back of the wearer to be tied in suitable manner. From this description it will be seen that We have devised a very simple construction which will provide a garment having an overlapping 20 skirt with a blouse which will have a vertical centre opening, the edges of which are overlapped and detachably secured together by any suitable means such as the button 5X described.y If desired a double breasted effect may be pro 3 are button holes formed in the overlapping portion IX and 4 are button holes formed in the buttons and button strips such as 5X and 5 previ yously described, a button strip being Iprovided underlying portion I0. The button holes 3 and 4 at each side of the blouse. are arranged in pairs which are aligned one with 35 the other and behind these button holes> is located an independent fabric strip 5 to which are secured buttons 5X which are passed through aligned but ton holes 3 and 4 to secure the overlapping por tions of the blouse together. The skirt portion 2 is provided at each side its 40 centre front with lateral extensions 6 and ‘I which overlap and which are secured at their outer edge to each side of the skirt by any suitable means such as by ties 8 and 9. If ties are used the skirt 4.5 is provided on its waist line with slotted openings 8X and 9X. When the garment is in the position shown with the skirt portion 6 overlapping the skirt portion 'I, the tie 8 extends through the slotted opening 8X and is passed around to tie 50 with the other tie portion 9 at the back of the wearer. Also when the garment is' in this position, the 25 duced by extending the overlapping portions IX and I0 laterally and providing aligned button holes in the overlapping portions adjacent each vertical edge and aligned button holes in the blouse and securing these parts together with 30 What We claim as our invention is:-- In a Wraparound garment, a skirt having a 35 double front formed by overlapping portions eX~ tending to opposite sides of the skirt, a waist formed integral with the skirt and having a centre front opening the sides of which overlap, registering button holes in the overlapping and underlapping portions., a removable tape extend ing beneath the lapping portions and having a single row of buttons extending longitudinally thereof, each button insertable in a pair of reg istering button holes imparting a shirt front eii‘ect 45 to the wraparound garment whereby the front skirt portion and central front portion of the waist may be overlapped to present either por tion outermost. 50 JAMES KENNEDY MCCOMB.
