5 open skirt effect with no, crotch, and to make
this skirt effect assimilate pants, shorts, pajamas
or the like.

In the accompanying drawings forming a part
of the application and wherein like numerals are
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

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

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
The mid-section of the body part may also be
provided with a belt effect 23 at waist height to 50

of an upper shirt piece and lower pants piece.

may be printed directly upon or incorporated
directly in the fabric by any known methods of 55
