This invention relates to new and useful im provements in sleeping garments. , ' An important object of the invention is to provide a comfortable sleeping garment with an 5 open skirt effect with no, crotch, and to make this skirt effect assimilate pants, shorts, pajamas or the like. ‘ Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent during the course of the 10 following description. In the accompanying drawings forming a part of the application and wherein like numerals are 15 as shown in Figs. 4 to 6 inclusive, is also effective in giving a more decided appearance of pants legs. , The stripes l6 and ll of color contrasting with '* the skirt material, are preferably trimming bands sewed onto'the skirt material. so as to assist in causing the'skirt to hang relatively ?at in a manner to expose the stripes when the garment is donned by the wearer. To augment this pur L10 pose, ‘these stripes may be of heavier or stiffer material than the garment itself, or it may be employed to designate like parts throughout the spun or woven in a different way than the gar several views, ment material or as integral parts of the skirt to get the same results. In case these stripes are 15 ' Fig. 1 is a front plan of one form of the in vention of the knee length type, Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same, Fig. 3 is a bottom elevation of the lower end of the garment, 20 continuing around the lower edge of the skirt, Fig. 4 is a front plan of a modi?ed form of the invention showing the pajama length type of garment, Fig. 5 is a side elevation of the same, Fig. 6 is a bottom plan of the same. 25 As stated, the primary object of the invention is to provide a comfortable sleeping garment with an open skirt effect and to make this skirt effect assimilate shorts or pajamas. Referring to the ?gures in general, the garment comprises a sub 30 stantially open ended tubular body portion l0 and skirt portion ID’. This skirt portion may be of any length desired, but at least approximately of knee length or thereabouts. The modi?cations shown in Figs. 4 to 6 illustrate the skirt portion of 35 a length below the knees. The neck opening II in the body portion may be of any shape or style and this upper shirt end of the garment may be sleeveless or have sleeves I2 of any desired length or kind, preferably of the raglan or 4-1.; kimona style. In order that the lower skirt portion 10' of the garment be camou?aged to assimilate shorts or pajamas for persons who are fastidious about their nightly appearance, the front and back 4-3 panels or portions [3 and M respectively of the skirt portion are each provided with a demarca tion or ornamentation IE to give the appearance of the two leg portions of shorts or pajamas. In Figs. 1 to 3, this demarcation I6 takes the 5);) form of a vertical relatively wide stripe to give the appearance of the garment having a crotch and a pair of leg portions, while actually, it has no crotch. This demarcation may be of any de sired shape, but an inverted solid V-shape, gives 55 the effect, or an inverted V-shape with a pair of printed directly upon the garment fabric, the coloringmaterial, will of itself, add to the thick ness, density or bulk of those portions of the garment material upon which the trimmings are disposed to, in effect, stiffen the skirt and cause 20 it to hang in a manner to expose the stripes. The stripes around the bottom edges of the skirt, aug ment this purpose. In some forms of the inven tion the skirt may be made to hang with an in verted V-shaped fold or kick pleat at the front and back folded inwardly at the lower edge of the skirt and extending up to a point adjacent the wearer’s crotch. In such cases that portion of the skirt de?ned down within the V-shaped fold is colored a contrasting color. Any of these 30 forms may have the addition of a vertical slot 19, of any desired length, separating each front and rear skirt portion into leg portions 20 and 2| to render the pants effect more pronounced. The two sides of the skirt portion l0’ may each be 35 provided with a slit or slot 22 bordered with a continuation 22' of the stripe or band from around the lower edge up to the vicinity of the hip of the wearer to give greater freedom of body parts within the garment and to enhance the ap 40 pearance thereof, or the sides of the garment may be entirely closed. The back panel may have a similar vertical stripe from the lower edge up to a point about the middle of the skirt portion, or this vertical stripe may be augmented with a 45 small horizontal stripe at the upper end of the vertical stripe to form substantially a T or Y effect. The mid-section of the body part may also be provided with a belt effect 23 at waist height to 50 give the garment the effect of being composed of an upper shirt piece and lower pants piece. The belt effect and demarcations l6, l1, and 22' may be printed directly upon or incorporated directly in the fabric by any known methods of 55 2,135,286 } I claimf obtaining color "effects.
