The shape became popular here in the 1920s, as a rebellion against the corsets, bustles and long skirts from earlier fashion eras. During the Twenties, flappers wore shifts as a rebellious fashion statement, but an added bonus is that the short, loose dress is easy to dance in. smock a loose coverall that protects the clothes "The collection was soon full of smocks, aprons, and long skirts layered over wide-legged pants." – The New Yorker (Sep 2, 2019) The noun smock refers to a garment; you may have worn one of your dad's old shirts backwards as a smock in art class to keep paint from ruining your clothes. The verb describes a way of using stitches to add decorative pleats to fabric. tunic loose fitting cloak or blouse extending to the hips or knees "The bride’s ensemble is matched to her husband’s tunic and pants set, along with his agbada draping and fila hat." – New York Times (Aug 20, 2019) vest a sleeveless garment worn underneath a coat "From player fines to PED and drug enforcement to equipment and slow play policing, the tour continues to play things close to the vest." – Golf Digest (Sep 11, 2019) Vests come in every possible material and style, but the one thing they all have in common — their essence, their nature, their very soul — is a complete and total lack of sleeves. zipper a fastener for locking together two toothed edges hem the edge of a piece of cloth serger a sewing machine that overcasts the raw edges of a fabric with a V-shaped stitch sewing machine a textile machine used as a home appliance for sewing clip a small fastener used to hold loose articles together notch a small cut facing an ornamental coating to a building button a round fastener sewn to shirts and coats buttonhole a hole through which buttons are pushed pin a small slender (often pointed) piece of wood or metal used to support or fasten or attach things needle a sharp pointed implement elastic capable of resuming shape after stretching or compression cutting the act of penetrating or opening open with a sharp edge marking a distinguishing symbol stitch a link or loop made by sewing, knitting, or needlework press exert pressure or force to or upon iron a heavy ductile magnetic metallic element sew create (clothes) with cloth infliction the act of imposing something (as a tax or an embargo) It was a circumstance to be noted on the summer morning when our story begins its course, that the women, of whom there were several in the crowd, appeared to take a peculiar interest in whatever penal infliction might be expected to ensue. pillory a wooden instrument of punishment on a post It was, in short, the platform of the pillory; and above it rose the framework of that instrument of discipline, so fashioned as to confine the human head in its tight grasp, and thus hold it up to the public gaze. sumptuary regulating or controlling expenditure or personal behavior On the breast of her gown, in fine red cloth, surrounded with an elaborate embroidery and fantastic flourishes of gold thread, appeared the letter A. It was so artistically done, and with so much fertility and gorgeous luxuriance of fancy, that it had all the effect of a last and fitting decoration to the apparel which she wore, and which was of a splendour in accordance with the taste of the age, but greatly beyond what was allowed by the sumptuary regulations of the colony. scaffold a temporary arrangement erected around a building Meagre, indeed, and cold, was the sympathy that a transgressor might look for, from such bystanders, at the scaffold. rotundity the roundness of a 3-dimensional object There was, moreover, a boldness and rotundity of speech among these matrons, as most of them seemed to be, that would startle us at the present day, whether in respect to its purport or its volume of tone. heedful giving close and thoughtful attention She saw her father's face, with its bold brow, and reverend white beard that flowed over the old-fashioned Elizabethan ruff; her mother's, too, with the look of heedful and anxious love which it always wore in her remembrance, and which, even since her death, had so often laid the impediment of a gentle remonstrance in her daughter's pathway. gentility elegance by virtue of fineness of manner and expression She was ladylike, too, after the manner of the feminine gentility of those days; characterised by a certain state and dignity, rather than by the delicate, evanescent, and indescribable grace which is now recognised as its indication. prefigure indicate by signs; be an early indication of This personage prefigured and represented in his aspect the whole dismal severity of the Puritanic code of law, which it was his business to administer in its final and closest application to the offender. inauspicious boding ill Finding it so directly on the threshold of our narrative, which is now about to issue from that inauspicious portal, we could hardly do otherwise than pluck one of its flowers, and present it to the reader. bodice part of a dress above the waist "At the very least, they should have put the brand of a hot iron on Hester Prynne's forehead. Madame Hester would have winced at that, I warrant me. But she—the naughty baggage—little will she care what they put upon the bodice of her gown! Why, look you, she may cover it with a brooch, or such like heathenish adornment, and so walk the streets as brave as ever!" portal a grand and imposing entrance But on one side of the portal, and rooted almost at the threshold, was a wild rose-bush, covered, in this month of June, with its delicate gems, which might be imagined to offer their fragrance and fragile beauty to the prisoner as he went in, and to the condemned criminal as he came forth to his doom, in token that the deep heart of Nature could pity and be kind to him. apparel clothing in general "Open a passage; and I promise ye, Mistress Prynne shall be set where man, woman, and child may have a fair sight of her brave apparel from this time till an hour past meridian. A blessing on the righteous colony of the Massachusetts, where iniquity is dragged out into the sunshine! Come along, Madame Hester, and show your scarlet letter in the market-place!"
