    Adult bib

    GailG from Louisiana ask about the bibs so she could make some. Here is pictures and measurements.

    Bottom finished width is 151/2 " , 15 inches width just below the u shape for the neck, 91/2 inches in length from bottom of u to top. 16 inches in length from bottom of u to bottom of bib. I make them reversiable and use about 1/2 inch seam. You can make double thick pocket for each side, however I stopped doing that for cost and time. I hope this helps. Suzanne
    PS: I forgot to say I close top with about 1 and 1/2 inch of velcro and get a color to match.

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    I made 1 for my hubby to use when he eats in the living room...he never uses it but refuses to let me give it to my son (who wants it). Guess I'll have to make another 1 for my son for Christmas!
    I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!

    I think I could use one. I always spill things on my shirt when I eat.

    Great instructions. I also make them but longer so it lays in the lap & catches spills in the lap.

    Very pretty and useful.
    Sometimes I could use one when eating out. I went through a spell about 30 - 35 years ago when I would wear bit of stuff I ate out. Not messy at home.
    I doubt My Husband or kids would eat out with me if I wore a bib.

    Love the color of your bibs. I have made them also for friends parents and family members mines are a little longer with a pocket across to catch the falling food. What do you line yours with?

    Thank you, Suzanne!! I can think of all the possibilities. Your directions are very clear. In this area, we have seafood boils (crabs, shrimp, and crawfish). We usually supply lots of paper towels to keep our "fronts" clean. Sewfine has a good idea using the long pocket across the bottom. And of course, I will need two for the car. We like to go to our favorite drive-in for chili dogs -- very messy.
