1 Claim.
This invention relates to infants’ garments and
particulary to pinless diapers. We are aware that
pinless diapers have heretofore been suggested,
but the difficulty has been primarily in that they
have been formed of irregular shape and, there
fore, are not suitable for manufacture on an eco
nomical basis.
Additionally, such suggestions
have usually included the use of tapes or special
fastening devices which increased the laundering
difficulties and which are apt to bind the legs of
an infant by being unintentionally drawn too

ly at their mid-portions, as along the line l1, with
the gauze disposed outside the fabric, and then
the sides of the fabric layer are stitched to
gether as at E8 in Fig. 4, while a row‘of stitching
is also made around the folded margin. This
makes a bag-like member open at one end which
is then turned inside out, whereupon the open
end is stitched closed, as along the line 20 in
Fig. 5.

is intended for attachment at the sides and
front of an infant, and additionally the diaper of

An advantage of a combined shirt and diaper

safety to the infant due to the absence of pins
and due to the absence of tapes that are apt to

about half the fabric material normally used in
