petticoat & void

Quotations:

Complete Works of Virginia Woolf: The Voyage Out

Her petticoats, however, rose above her knees.

Instantly the world dropped into shape; they were no longer atoms flying in the void, but people riding a triumphant ship on the back of the sea.

Definitions:

petticoat:
a piece of women's underwear like a thin dress or skirt, worn under a dress or skirt.

void:
a large empty space.
