The title almost certainly refers to a table game of skittles. This game involves nine small skittles to be knocked down by a ball on a string attached to an arm similar to a miniature garden ‘swingball’ or, in a larger version, by directing a spinning top at the skittles.

Why the devil should be among the tailors, however, remains a mystery although it has been suggested that a tailor’s devil is a pressing iron and the title refers to its use by a number of tailors who traditionally sit in a circle on a large workbench.
