This invention relates generally to ladies’ gar
ments and more speci?cally to the type adapted
to be worn by women during pregnancy.
During pregnancy it is dif?cult for women to
wear smart tight-?tting garments. The common
practice is to use loose fitting garments which
are very unsightly for the most part. The only
means usually provided for making adjustments

An arcuate out is also made along the line 2| to
form an arm opening 22. The opposite edge of

an arm opening 24.
A further out is made slightly on the bias along
the lines 25 and 26 to form shoulder portions.

tape 69 which is attached to these edges by any
well known method of sewing. The tape 69 is pro
vided with a plurality of buttons ‘II, ‘I2, ‘I3, 14, ‘I5
