Examples of garment in a Sentence

  1. Helen Gunthorpe:

    The need was easy to see because there was no organization for women garment workers here in Myanmar at the time.

  2. Margot Vaaderpass:

    That's one of things that I have taken up as a challenge - how can we create a suit that's knitted, the advantage of that is that we can shape the garment, that means that we can produce less waste.

  3. James Arthur Baldwin:

    Identity would seem to be the garment with which one covers the nakedness of the self, in which case, it is best that the garment be loose, a little like the robes of the desert, through which one's nakedness can always be felt, and, sometimes, discerned. This trust in one's nakedness is all that gives one the power to change one's robes.

  4. William Wordsworth:

  5. Anthony DeStefano:

The big labor racketeering rackets, the big concrete syndicates, the big garment industry rackets don't exist anymore. You have local businesses, like the restaurants, maybe an auto body shop, that could be muscled by the mob. That's where it still works. But the old-time stuff, forget it.
