It’s only been three weeks since we launched the Amalia Jacket pattern…but…there’s a new Scroop Pattern!

And it’s free!

I thought it would be nice to start 2021 by putting out something fun and silly, and giving something back to the costuming community.

And what’s more fun than a big huge puffy bum cushion? Meet the Frances Rump – a free pattern which will give you the perfect fashionable silhouette for 1775-1795.

I researched and made bum rumps to go with the Amalia Jacket. I took my prototypes to the Historical Sew & Eat Retreat, where they were a big hit with the other costumers. (“Can I borrow your bum?” is a normal sentence in my world 🤣)

I thought they might be a big hit with you too – and the perfect companion to the Augusta Stays and the Amalia Jacket!

The Frances Rump is based on extant rumps and images of rumps in the late 18th century.

It features detailed historically accurate instructions, including information on choosing fabrics and fillings, the stitches to use, and how to adjust the filling to get just the right silhouette.

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.

Enjoy! Can’t wait to see your Frances Rump makes on social media! (another sentence you’d only get in the costuming world!)

    How wonderful, kind, and generous of you Lemomi! Long have I wished for a rump of my own I have followed your blog for many years now, and it was a great inspiration to me when I was first really getting into historical sewing. You give so much to the sewing community just as you are! May 2021 bring you as much happiness as you bring your loyal followers.

    I’m snickering. I have no use for one but it’s so much fun! Thanks for making my Wednesday.

    I’m a week late, but honestly, after the week we’ve had in the US, the gift of a pattern (especially when I was just planning on making a rump of my own!) is almost enough to make me tear up. Thanks, Leimomi.
