Maybe ask your sister what size T-shirt baby wears because you "saw some on sale" and want want to pick up a few for baby. You can then go out and take some measurements as to where you want the bib to fall on a T-shirt you know is her size.

Just a thought ...

How are you making the "neckline" Nicoley? You could make it expandable by putting buttons, snaps, or velcro on the two end pieces hence making it last a lot longer. I'm partial to snaps or velcro myself.

If it's more like a mini shirt (ie. one that covers the shoulders, back, and entire front for the more adventurous eaters...) then putting a slit at one of the shoulders with some buttons or snaps would work out fine.

I would recommend putting the button holes in the neck piece and one button on the corner of the bib. The less buttons the better.

I measured my son's neck (21 months) and the circumference was 10 inches. A baby's wouldn't be much less, but you could put a few holes in that are an inch apart.
