AbstractTemporary disposable apparel, such as a bib is formed in a multilayer arrangement with at least one absorbent panel and a non-absorbent panel. The absorbent panel forms the front and the non-absorbent panel forms the back with the non-absorbent panel offset downward or longitudinally terminating in a free flap. A series or strip of such bibs are tear line connected and may be packaged in a roll. The offset feature of the two panels provides for protection of an adhesive strip on the upper inside of the absorbent panel by the free flap of the adjacent bib in the strip. Tear lines between connecting or adjacent bibs in the strip provide for convenient packaging.
