Cleavage Be Gone



Cleavage be gone is a free, easy sewing pattern for those who don't wish to show what their mama gave them! Sew up a quick boob bib to cover up that cleavage!

Cleavage Be Gone


  • Fabric that matches your shirt
  • Two buttons
  • Two hair ties
  • Lace or other embellishments (optional)
  • Sewing supplies


  1. First make a pattern of the Cleavage Cover.


  2. Pick out the material you would like it to be made out of, (preferably something that goes with most everything). Do the seams 1/4 inch.

  3. Zig Zag the hair tie on the edge as in the picture.

  4. Sew buttons (preferably the same color as the material on 1 1/4 inch in from the sides.

  5. Pick out the lace you would like on top, leave some extra on the side to turn under, and sew it on.

  6. Once you make sure the cover will reach from bra strap to bra strap, take the hair tie & go around the back side of your bra strap and fasten to the button on both sides. There should not be any pulling from either side. If there is pulling then the seams are too big or the pattern was not big enough. Each person has to measure themselves and add 1/2 inch for the seam and so the cover will not pull.

Finally a boob guard. I need this and have not yet done it inspiring. sometimes I don't want to wear another shirt under because the color or style is wrong or it is summer.

If you don't want to show your cleavage, why not just wear a higher necked top?

This is a fabulous idea, and I can see several methods of designs....just can't believe no one thought if it before! :-) I thought of a bra dicky having come from the days when dickys were so popular-fake turtle necks/fake chamisols.

you can also make the material in a triangle shape. I use ribbon and small strips of Velcro instead of the buttons and hair ties.

I had bought a pair of undies with a black/white geometric design only sale that were too big for me. I cut the front material and back off and made 2 boob bibs (one to keep, one to give away) out of it.


I thank God for you. I don't have to worry about tank tops anymore.

This sounds like a great idea and pattern. I can't seem to find anything anymore that does not show more cleavage than I want to.


So happy to find this pattern! Good to have something to "cover up" that which God gave me. Todays fashions seem to be putting everything out there for all to see. That is not for me.

Okay I love the idea and think this is a neat, useful pattern, but I have to say I LOVE when she called it a "boob bib." NEW NAME FOREVER! Thank you for the laugh! :-)


what does make a pattern of the cleavage first
