BIB

Filed July 23, 1945 INVENTOR. l. J L M 4 Patented Oct. 12, 1948 Isadore Mink, Brooklyn, N. Y., assignor to Fine Art Apron 00., Inc., New York, N. Y., a corporation of New York Application July 23, 1945, Serial No. 606,672

4 Claims.

This invention relates generally to garments and more particularly to a novel and useful bib construction.

Among the objects of the present invention lies the provision of a bib construction which may be fabricated as a unitary product from a single piece of planar material.

Another object herein lies in the provision of an article of the class described which affords a maximum coverage and protection for the garments, and the body of the user therebeneath, in relation to the total area of the material used.

Another object of this invention is to provide an article of the class described which is easily donned and removed and which is comfortable when worn.

An advantage of the present construction lies in the fact that the bib is readily adapted to fit wearers of various sizes, or may be adjusted to accommodate the growth of a child.

A still further advantage of the present construction lies in the fact that when composed of certain materials, the bib may be completely reversed affording increased wear and decreased washings,

Another object herein lies in the provision of structural simplicity so that the present article of manufacture may be fabricated in large scale with a consequent low cost, and wide sale, distribution, and use.

These objects and other incidental ends and advantages will more fully appear in the progress of this disclosure and be pointed out in the appended claims.

In the drawings, in which similar reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views:

Figure 1 is a front elevational view of an embodiment of the invention as worn.

Figure 2 is a side perspective view of the bib shown in Figure 2 with the neck and back ties disengaged, and the wearer omitted.

Figure 3 is a rear elevational view of Figure 1.

Figure 4 is an elevational view of the bib as developed, the ties being fragmented. Figure 4 is on an enlarged scale with respect to Figures 1-3 inclusive. r

In accordance with the invention the bib is formed from a rectangular blank I I of a suitable planar flexible material. I have found various plastic sheets, or waterproof coating textile fabrics to be satisfactory. Where an absorbent effect is desired, waterproof coatings may be omitted with a consequent loss of their function.

,As seen in Figure 4 the blank II is provided 2 with three spaced cuts, two of which form th arm penetrated openings [2 and I3 and the third forms the neck receiving indentation 35. The indentation 35 is centrally disposed in the upper portion of the blank II extending downwardly from the upper edge I5. The openings I2 and i3 are substantially identical except that they are oppositely arranged so as to accommodate the upper arms and shoulders of the wearer. The configuration of the openings 12 and I3 is irregular and is best shown in Figure 4. Thus the openings 12 and I3 include upper arcuate portions I3 and Il, middle relatively straight downwardly and inwardly converging portions [8 and I9, lower curved portions '20 and 2!, and upwardly and inwardly converging portions 22 and 23.

Located inwardly of the portions ii and H are the epaulet portions 24 and 25 which when the garment or bib is worn overlie the shoulders of the wearer. Located below the portions 23 and 25 are the protective flaps 25 and 21. The flap members are partially encircled by the portions 20, 2! and 22', 23.

The side edges 28 and '29 of the body 38 are preferably spaced and parallel and at right angles to the top edge 15. The edges 23 and 29 are spaced from each other a distance suiiicient to permit them to substantially become juxtaposed when the bib is worn. The bottom edge 3! is spaced and preferably parallel with respect to the edge [5, and the distance between said edges may be suited to the length which it is desired the finished bib may have when worn.

The edges 28 and29 may each be provided with a plurality of back ties 36, 31, 38, and 39. The outer ends of the indentation 35 where it merges with the edge l5 may have extending therefrom the neck ties 40 and Al. The ties 40 and 4! may be continuations of the indentation edge reinforcement 42. The edges [5, 3|, 28, 29, and the edges of the cuts I2 and I3 may be provided with.

the reinforcement 43, 44, and 45.

The use of the bib is a relatively simple and convenient matter particularly suited for the easy putting on and taking on" thereof upon children. .The right and left hands and arms of the wearermay be projected forwardly through the openings 42 and L3, or oppositely if the bib is reversed. The interengagement of the ties 40 and 4| brings the portion :36 under the chin of the wearer. The ties Ali] and 4| may be interconnected in any suitable manner as by a well known bow knot 41. Interengagement of the ties 33 and 38 and 37 and 39 may be similarly obtained so that the garment or bib as thus connected may present an appearance comparable to that shown in Figure 3. The openings l2 and I3 afford ample freedom for arm movement in comfort. The epaulet portions 24 and 25 protect the upper portions of the wearers shoulders. The flap members 26 and 2! protect the forward portions of the shoulders as well as adjacent portions of the chest or upper trunk of the wearer. The portions disposed below the openings I2 and [3 protect the side and rear portions of the body of the wearer of the bib, which they overlie,

It may thus be seen that I have provided a simple, efiicient and highly utilitarian bib construction. I wish it to be understood that I do not desire to be limited to the exact details of construction shown and described, for obvious modifications will occur to a person skilled in the art.

I claim:

1. A bib comprising a blank having a pair of oppositel disposed openings; said blank having a bottom edge, spaced side edges and an upper edge with an indentation therein adapted to engage the neck of a wearer; said openings being spaced a distance suificient to permit the sin trance therein of the upper portions of the arms of the wearer and defining epaulet portions extending toward said side edges, and flap members each having a substantially semi-circular :ee edge whose convexity i directed toward the bottom edge of the blank; and ties extending from the edges of said indentation, said ties being adapted to be disconnectably connectable for encirclement of the neck of the wearer.

2. A bib comprising; a substantially flat body composed of flexible sheet material, said body havingan upper edge, a pair of spaced side edges, and a bottom edge; said upper edge having an indentation for engaging the neck of a wearer; said body adjacent the upper edge, having a pair of oppositely disposed openings through which the wearers arms may extend, said openings each including an upper arcuate portion, the upper end of which is directed toward said neck indentation, a middle relatively straight portion which extends downwardly with respect to the upper edge of the body and converges inwardly toward the opposite opening, a lower curved portion which is convex'in the direction of the bottom edge of the body, and an upwardly and inwardiy converging portion, the end of which is directed toward saidneck indentation; said upper arcuate portions defining epaulet portions in said body which overlie the shoulders of the wearer; said middle straight portions, lower curved portions, and upwardly and inwardly converging portions defining flap members which hang down toprotect the forward portions of the shoulders and adjacent portions of the chest of the wearer and are liftable by arm movement of the wearer whereby said bib is easily donned and removed and afiords protection accompanied by comfortable freedom of arm movement.
