In Charlotte Bronte's book, 'Jane Eyre', published in 1847, "some of the girls have two clean tuckers in the week; the rules limit them to one."
We went to Cornwall for a couple of nights the other week, staying in St Ives. There was a bit of a sea mist and a cold wind. I was well wrapped up, I wasn't exactly dressed in my best bib and tucker.
It was quiet and out of season, excellent for just poking about. Then I found this rather interesting shop.
So I had to take a look inside!
There are two sorts of clothing that I've got in generous amounts; white cotton shirts and black dresses. So what did I buy? Yes, you guessed it, I bought a white shirt and a black dress! The shirt has a bit of a 'tucker', a decorative strip that buttons over the buttons so that the shirt can be worn in two ways.
