The ballerina and Dorothy bibs are very easy to make. 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.
