thy gown?

Thy gown? Why, ay–come, tailor, let us see’t. O mercy, God, what masquing stuff is there? What’s this, a sleeve? ‘Tis like a demi-cannon. What, up and down carved like an apple tart? Here’s snip and nip and cut and slish and slash, Like to a censer in a barber’s shop. Why, what’s a devil’s name, tailor, call’st thou this?
– Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew (Petruchio at IV, iii)
