I finally finished the posters for this month's Dressmakers Social and was told by my husband that they reminded him of the calling cards that used to be in public phone boxes.
This reminded me of hearing that the word "seamstress" was used as an alternative to "prostitute"
The Urban Dictionary says...
I like the words maker and dressmaker to describe what I do. Sewaholic also discusses this topic here http://bit.ly/1K5mOVp and I agree with her reading the word sewer reminds me of drains and rats.
With that in mind which words do you use to describe what you do?
P.s. Just to be clear next week's Dressmakers Social is a gathering of people who make their own clothes 😜
