Big Dog Bibs

Last week I got a new customer, a big customer that drools a lot and needed some new bibs as her current bibs were worn out from frequent washing,

The bibs are made of 2 layers of terry cloth and are about 15" across.  I didn't have any trouble coming up with some "girl" type prints for the binding and made 6 bibs 2 of which are duplicates

And here is the baby with one of her new bibs.  If you look closely you can see that the bib has already been field tested.

Vogue 8634 again

This is actually the 3rd time I have made Vogue 8634, see my last version here

I made this version with a light weight fleece fabric that I wanted to use before it started getting warm outside.  This top is warm and very soft, but even though the fleece is a stretch knit I should have made this bigger.  It was comfortable to wear but you can tell I need to adjust the size by the back view and work on a back adjustment for all my makes.    Funny, my teenage daughter really liked how this looked on me but I think it must be because the color suited me rather than how it fit.

I really like this pattern, it goes together quickly, something I appreciate during my late night sewing bouts.
