Copied from Texas Civilian Yahoo list. Posted October 2007

I'm guessing it's that little bum roll at the back waist that helps a nice silk dress skirt flare out and toward the back. Moi, I have never made one, as I consider the bum roll that nature provided quite ample. ;-) Maybe for this next dress. The fabric, velvet ribbon, and floss fringe are currently draped over the dress dummy, with the rosettes and tassels nearby. By some miracle, the unfinished bonnet from the Austin workshop matches almost exactly. I think it is fate!
