    Well done. Here is the key:-

    1. seamstress(es)
    2. pincushion(s)
    3. tape measure(s) (not to be confused with a ruler)
    4. customer(s)
    5. hemline(s)
    6. stiletto(s)
    7. (coat) hanger(s)
    8. clothes / clothing rail(s)
    9. catwalk(s) (US runway)
    10. knee-high boot(s)
    11. raincoat(s), trench coat(s), mackintosh(es)
    12. pocket(s)
    13. cuff(s)
    14. belt(s)
    15. buckle(s)
    16. lapel(s)
    17. epaulet(s)
    18. collar(s)
    19. model / fashion model
    20. sleeve(s)
    21. mannequin(s)
    22. gown(s) / ballgown(s) / evening gown(s)

    What do you think the seamstress is saying to the customer?

    Seamstress: It’s a size 14, but we can let it out a little.

    Customer: No, it doesn’t fit me. It’s so tight. It's at least two sizes too small.

    Seamstress: But look how the pink matches your complexion. It’s just perfect.

    Customer: It didn't look like this on the model.
