Difficulty: Easy  

The Frances Rump is a padded 'bum' or 'rump' that will help you create the fashionable full bottomed silhouette of the last quarter of the 18th century.  Based on extant examples and depictions of rumps in caricatures, it's the perfect accompaniment to the Augusta Stays and the Amalia Jacket.  

 The type and amount of filling you use, and which quilted sections you fill, allow you to customise the shape to help you achieve the exact silhouette you desire.

The Frances Rump pattern features historically accurate construction techniques, and detailed notes on the materials, filling, and stitches used.  

If accuracy isn't a concern the pattern is easily adapted for machine sewn construction.

View A is a larger rump that creates the full-bottomed, round-hipped shape fashionable between 1775-1787.

View B is a smaller rump that creates the back-focused silhouette, with fullness concentrated only over the rear, fashionable from 1785-1795.
