Suggested by Patrick Cosgrove

A decorative cover for a toilet comprises a fabric shaped by a plurality of ribs, the ribs pivotally mounted to the rear of the toilet seat. The ribs are of a sequentially reduced configu- ration allowing for a fully nested relationship therebetween. The ribs are movable to a first nested relationship adjacent the water reservoir which collpases the cover and allows access to the toilet bowl. Upon movement of the nested ribs away from their nested relationship, the cover is extended between the water reservoir and towards the toilet rim. A fixed spacer cover encloses the space between the water reservoir and one end of the collapsible cover.
