Great idea,! Can't wait to make mine. Thanks

This is super I love this pattern and so easy. I have some old t-shirts that are different colors I was going to pitch but not now. This site is awesome I am never throwing old clothes away again!!!! Debra Head

There's a great pattern for this on FaveCrafts called Cleavage Be Gone:

This is to bettyboopjud---I make the cover to hide when the blouses are too low. I take a piece of paper to make a pattern. I make the pattern to be a little over the size needed from one side Bra strap to the other side strap. Enough to make the hem on the sides, then I take two small hair ties and zig zag one end of the tie to one side then the other side the same. I make sure the ties go around the strap and place a button where it should go for the tie to hold around the bra strap. Then I take a piece of lace to go across the top and it's all done.

How cool, ladies! I am an old sewer that is still hammering on the old sewing machine, Have 2 machines and one serger set up in my little house. I still sew most of the fun things in my home for for my fun old body. This is such a grand idea to make. I surely will do so for myself. Everything is so LOW, and not my speed. thanks for this great new site!!

Hello, this is really a nice t-shirt ....i need my age everything seems to be way to low cut in front....i have bought the little things you hook to your bra straps but the hooks don't really work and the thing slides all over the you have any suggestions or patterns i could use to make something to fill in the front of my blouses that are toooooo low cut.? something like the old dickeys but NOT over the head. thank you, Judie
