One of these components, a long-sleeved, coverall garment, characterized by a full-front, snapped opening, can be worn either as a long dress or as a robe, or by means of three vertically placed snaps at the center of the lower back can be snapped to the front in order to form a pair of coveralls. The other three of the components are a pair of booties, a rolled-edge hat, and a bib that snaps together at the back of the neck.
