Another object is to provide a bifurcated gar

abdomen in front along the full length of the
crotch to a point 1 adjacent the waistline in the

A further important object .is to provide ‘a 'bi—

from the front waistline to the rear waistline by
a single scam, the meeting edges of which are
secured'by a separable fastener along the entire
2.0 length of the seam. By means of this construc

For a more complete understanding of the in

ment of the invention.
Figure l is a front elevational view of the gar
30 ment as it appears when worn, the pleated por-l
tions being secured to simulate a skirt.
Figure 1b is a View similar to that of Figure 1,
showing the pleated portions parted to expose the
leg portions of the garment.
Figure 2 is a‘rear elevational view showing the
garment as worn, with the pleats folded in the
manner shown in Figure 1.
Figure 3 is a front view showing the operation
7 of the slide fastener at the front of the crotch.
Figure 3a is a rear view showing the operation
-of the slide fastener at the rear of the crotch.
Figure 4 is a view taken in the direction of the
arrows along the line 4—4 of Figure l, the legs
fastener v9; adjacent the midsection of the abdo
men, and extends inwardly to the inner fold of
the pleats l0, Illa, and upwardly to the top edge 30
of each leg portion, as best shown in Figure 6.
An advantage of this construction is that it
eliminates an additional thickness of material
adjacent that portion of the body and lowers the‘
fastening element to a point below the waistline 5
so as to avoid the discomfort caused by having a
fastening element at the waistline when the
wearer of the garment bends over.
As shown in‘ Figure l, fastening means are
preferably provided to secure together the meet- ‘40
ing edges of the adjacent front pleat portions,
thereby enclosing and removing from view the
fastener for the crotch extending from the waist
line in front to the waistline in back.
Figure 6 is an elevational view of the'blank
50 used for the leg portions.
The invention includes an upper body portion
seam 5 and separable fastener elements 8, so
that the garment, simulating a skirt, may be 45
worn with the bifurcations exposed or enclosed,
as desired, with complete modesty and pro
priety. The pleats at the back of the garment
may be similarly fastened if desired. It will be
seen that this construction provides a simple and
effective garment which can be made-and sold
I, a waistline 2, and a lowerdrape portion 3.
The drape portion, as shown in the drawings,
has the appearance of a skirt, with lines ?owing
55 outwardly in ?aring fashion from the waistline
around the house, for sportswear, or otherwise.
It is understood that changes in the construc
tion of the garment may be made without de
being shown diagrammatically.

drape portion cut away to show the separable
economically, and which can be used for wear
