SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

 It is an object of the present invention to provide a garment where a baby, an invalid or an individual is laid onto the garment and the garment is wrapped around the baby or an invalid and is then fastened closed.

It is another object of the present invention to provide a garment which does not have to be slipped over the head of a baby, an invalid or an individual.

It is still another object of the present invention to provide a garment which does not require the manipulation of the arms or legs of a baby, an invalid or an individual, in order to place the arms and legs into the sleeves or trouser legs of the garment.

It is yet another object of the present invention to provide a means of adjusting the length of a sleeve, short leg or trouser leg by cuffing the sleeve, short leg or trouser leg and securing it into position by fastening one fastener on the cuff to one of many preferably evenly spaced going up the outside of the sleeve, short leg or trouser leg.

It is a further object of the present invention to provide a sleeve, short leg or trouser leg longer than the wearer’s appendage so the sleeve cuff, short leg cuff or trouser leg cuff opening can be fastened closed using fasteners located on either opposite sides of the leg cuff.

These and other objects and advantages of the present invention are provided within this patent application.

The present invention and many preferred embodiments of the present invention include a short sleeve, long sleeve or sleeveless full body leotard, a front opening short sleeve, long sleeve or sleeveless full body leotard, a short sleeve, long sleeve or sleeveless shirt or a front opening short sleeve, long sleeve or sleeveless robe, jacket or bullet proof vest. An opening and closure means is located on the front of the neck band, continuing across the collarbone shoulder section to the sleeve seam on both the left and right sides. In another embodiment, the opening and closure means continues from the sleeve seam down the sleeve to an unopenable binding cuff. In another embodiment, the opening and closure means continues from the sleeve seam down the sleeve to an openable binding cuff, allowing for the complete opening of the neck, shoulder, arm and binding cuff sections. Using the same embodiment on a long sleeve leotard, with the opening and closure means continuing from the sleeve seam down the sleeve to an unopenable or openable binding cuff, the lower sleeve section has a row of female opening and closure means located on the front outside of the sleeve. A male opening and closure means is located on the outside of the unopenable binding cuff or the openable binding cuff seam for closure engagement with the female opening and closure means located on the front outside of the sleeve when the sleeve is in a cuffed position, shortening the sleeve’s length. When the garment’s sleeves are manufactured longer than needed, the male opening and closure means located on the outside of the unopenable binding cuff or the openable binding cuff seam can also be fastened to a female opening and closure means located on the back side of the binding cuff seam, closing off the sleeve end opening. The descriptions provided for the present invention and preferred embodiments can also be used on short sleeve, long sleeve or sleeveless shirts or front opening short sleeve, long sleeve or sleeveless shirts. The opening and closure seams preferably open from the bottom side edge of the seam on a baby’s garment, preventing the opening of a closure or seam by the baby, and preferably opens from the top side edge of the seam on an invalid’s garment, making it easier for the invalid to dress themselves.

The present invention and many preferred embodiments of the present invention also includes a pair of trousers or pair of shorts. An opening and closure means is located on the front of the waistband, continuing down the trouser leg section to the ankle or knee binding cuff. The opening and closure means extends to an unopenable or openable binding cuff. The lower trouser leg section has a row of female opening and closure means located on the lower frontal outside section of the trouser leg. A male opening and closure means is located on the outside of the unopenable ankle binding cuff or the openable ankle binding cuff seam for closure engagement with the female opening and closure means located on the lower frontal outside section of the trouser leg when the trouser leg is in a cuffed position, shortening the trouser leg length. When the garment’s trouser legs are manufactured longer than needed, the preferred male opening and closure means located on the preferable outside of the unopenable ankle binding cuff or the openable ankle binding cuff seam can also be fastened to a preferred female opening and closure means located on the preferable back side of the binding cuff seam, closing off the trouser leg end or sleeve end opening. The opening and closure seams preferably open from the outside edge of the seam on a baby’s garment, preventing the opening of a closure or seam by the baby, and preferably opens from the inside edge of the seam on an invalid’s garment, making it easier for the invalid to dress themselves.

Baby garments are not manufactured in mesurement sizes, but in age category sizes. Baby garments come in 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 9-12 months, 12-18 months, 2 years (2T), 3 years (3T), etc. Producing a garment which can be used for an extended period of time by adjusting the length of the trouser legs or sleeves is advantageous.

The preferred embodiments of the present invention allow a baby, an invalid or an individual to be laid on the garment and the garment to be wrapped around and fastened closed without slipping the garment over the head or slipping the arms and legs through the sleeves or trouser legs. The drawings show the invention using metal or non-metal snaps as one of the preferred closure and opening means. Many mothers and others complain about the difficulty of opening and closing snaps. Due to the increased amount of opening and closure means required for the present invention, in another preferred embodiment of the present invention, the closure and opening means preferably uses patches of hook and loop Velcro™ fasteners sewn onto or adhered to the mating seam edges for faster and easier closing of the mating edges. Combinations of metal or non-metal snaps and patches of hook and loop Velcro™ fasteners can also be used for fastening the mating seam edges closed. The hook part of the Velcro™ fastener preferably faces away from the wearer’s skin when it is sewn onto or adhered to the mating seam edges. When the hook part of the Velcro™ fastener is used on a garment and not mated with the loop part of the Velcro™ fastener while being worn, a tab of fabric with the loop part of the Velcro™ fastener can be sewn to one side for mating edge engagement, protecting the hook part of the Velcro™ fastener and/or the wearer’s skin. When the hook part of the Velcro™ fastener is needed, the tab of fabric with the loop part of the Velcro™ fastener can be unmated and used to mate with the desired loop part of the Velcro™ fastener located somewhere else on the garment. The patches of hook and loop Velcro™ fasteners are preferably round, preventing the corners of the hook and loop Velcro™ fasteners from scratching or irritating the wearer’s skin. Alternative preferred embodiments of the present invention can also use buttons, zippers, zip lock fasteners, magnets or other types of fasteners as opening and closure means, but metal or non-metal snaps, patches of hook and loop Velcro™ fasteners or combinations of both types of fasteners are preferred. These and other objects, features and advantages of the present invention will be better understood in connection with the following drawings and descriptions of the preferred embodiments.
