Fenner Fashions make women's clothing. It's run by Henry Fenner, (Peter Jones). Reg Turner (Reg Varney) is the downtrodden foreman on the shop floor. The machinists are all women lead by their union rep, Paddy Fleming (Miriam Karlin). The stories are all about the schemes the machinists get up to making life hard for the boss, Henry Fenner.
