Napi angol – whole cloth

made from whole cloth


Completely fictional or utterly false; totally made up. A reference to tailors who would falsely advertise garments being “cut out of whole cloth,” when, in reality, they were pieced together from different cuts.
To be honest, I don’t believe a word he says—it sounds like it’s made from whole cloth to me.

Azaz magyarul légből kapott, koholmány, puszta mese. :)

Itt találkoztam vele:

“I am the next High King’s messenger,” I say, taking Cardan’s ring from my pocket as proof that I have some connection to the royal family, that I am not just making up this story from whole cloth.
(Holly Black: The Cruel Prince, pg 328)
