For another 18th century project I knew I would need a false rump to create shape under the petticoats. But I wasn’t sure which style of rump would create the shape I needed. So I made three different styles to see what my options were. The first style is a split rump from The American Duchess Guide to 18th Century Dressmaking, the second is from Patterns of Fashion 5, and the third is self drafted from examples online. I have yet to try them with a petticoat, I am very interested what shapes they create.
