My present invention relatesv to garments. In
general, it is concerned primarily with infant's
wear, and more particularly aims to provide a
lower garment for infants which shall serve the
purposes of the usual napkin or diaper and also,
by reason of its extensive adjustability and other

I4, which become inner and outer elements in
the wearing position of the garment, are inte~
grally connected attheir adjacent widest por
tions,_as at I 8 and I8, Figs: 1, 2 and 3.
Each of these main parts I! and I4 comprises
novel features may have a wider use,‘ in the
nature of a pant or so called training pantie, ' a rear section 20 and a connected front section
for infants beyond the usual diaper-wearing 22, each of which sections includes a waist or

Similar fastening means is provided as in the

these
buttonholes
preferably being horizontally‘disposed, to resist

'
The garment in either of its main forms as
herein disclosed may additionally be provided
with fastening means of the character described,
such as shown separately in Fig. 6, at the upper
central edge portions of the front and rear sec
tions, and also ifdesired at the upper side edges \
of the garment for the attachment of other
apparel, such as shirts and vests as generally
worn by older infants and young children. If pre
ferred, the garment may be supplied merely with
buttonholes at the locations here referred to.
My invention is not limited to the particular
embodiments thereof as herein illustrated and

following claims.
I claim:
,
-
_1. A lower garment for infants, said garment .
comprising one or more similarly shaped fabric
50
For further cooperation with the fastener 48 'plies‘ proportioned to form front and rear gar
and its button 50, the front section ‘I6 has formed ment'sections each comprising a waist portion
and an intermediate connecting leg portion of
centrally thereof at its end portion one, and pref
reduced lateral extent, the rear section being so
erably a plurality, of vertically‘ spaced‘ button
holes 84, two of which are here shown, either proportioned laterally that its side edge portions 55
55 of them selectively adapted to receive the button may be brought around at the front of the wearer
of the fastening means, in the adjusted wearing to adjustable extents, the front section having at
position of the garment. Thus in this instance each side of its waist portion a plurality of later
provision is made not onlyfor wide variation in ally spaced vertically elongated eyelets, the rear
waist size adjustment but also for adjustment section having at each side of its waist portion one 60
60 vertically, as to depth of seat room. Where the
or more buttonholes, and, for each side of said
series of eyelets includes. six such members it will
be evident’ that the fastener‘ element has ?ve
available attaching positions, not counting pos
sible attachment in other than two adjacent eye
65 lets. Multiplying this number by the number of
buttonholes of the series 82‘ accordingly gives, in
the illustrated example, ?fteen different adjusted
‘positions as to the waist of the garment.
Desirably means is provided for securing to

gether the front and rear leg portions, at each
surrounding the material between said eyelets,
front section, a ?at, inelastic one-piece fabric fas
tening strip for reception in a selected pair of the
eyelets, said strip having a total, extent not
greatly exceeding twice the‘ distance between 65
adjacent eyelets, so as to form a flat band snugly
and having a button at one end portion and a
buttonhole spaced from the button lengthwise -
the strip, said button and buttonhole being ?rst
interengageable to secure the strip removably in
position‘ in said eyelets of the front section, and
side of the garment. Such means may be either said button being. thereafter receivable in a but
.of the tie form as previously illustrated and de'-‘ tonhole at the corresponding side of the rear sec

and an intermediate connecting leg portion, one
portion of the front section substantially in from
the lateral edge thereof, and the other tie of each 5
section being so proportioned laterally that its ' pair being similarly located and‘ secured upon the
side edge portions may be brought around at the rear section, the inner portions of the ties for
opposite side of the wearer to adjustable extents, the front ‘section being doubled upon themselves
at least one waist portion having at its. upper and secured to the garment in said doubled form,

elongated eyelets, another waist portion having
at a corresponding location one or more button
holes, and, for each such plurality of eyelets, a
flat, inelastic one-piece fabric fastening strip for
