The ballerina and Dorothy bibs are very easy to make. Each bib measures 7 1/4” wide. The length is 10” from the top of the bib to the bottom (the length of the bib is 8 1/2” under the neck). The bibs look like little dresses with legs underneath. Sample bibs are embellished to look like a ballerina and Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. As the designer, you can create little bib dresses, using fabrics of your choice. This is a great way to use leftover fabric scraps.

This PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns, materials list, detailed instructions written in English, and clear step-by-step photographs.

There are five pages of instructions, two pages of patterns and thirty-one photographs.

*Note: These are downloadable instructions for making bibs. Since it is a download, a window will open to download and when you are signed into your user account at the time of purchase, it will also be located in the "My Library" section of your user account immediately after purchase.
