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 🤣)
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.
Elisabeth (red petticoat) is wearing the View A rump with her Amalia Jacket. Jenni (white petticoat) is wearing the View B rump with her Amalia Jacket.
Enjoy! Can’t wait to see your Frances Rump makes on social media! (another sentence you’d only get in the costuming world!)
