Brill shame I can't sew

As a couple of those in different fabrics would be great to add to my wardrobe even I don't go out very often

Yours

You could try some of that "Sew Simple" by Bostik, about 3-4 in Asda. I've made cushion covers, curtains, vest tops and a handbag, all without sewing a single stitch. Also fab when a seam comes down or for repairing tears in fabric.

Does that work with the recommended jersey/knit fabric?

Hmm not too sure I'd be happy about using this on a whole dress, it only has to fail while youre out and everyone gets a look at you in your birthday suit

Does anyone know where I can buy Sew Simple? My local ASDA denies all knowledge of it, and its £3.99 plus hefty postage on ebay.

Whoops, answered my own question ... WHSmith sell it online and instore

Sew Simple is a runny latex glue, it sticks really well on cotton and cotton mixes. I did a repair on a shirt and its still holding firm after a year of washing and wearing and ironing.
