    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.

    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
