Bum Roll and Shaped Petticoat

Petticoats are used to add bulk and support an over skirt, and to soften and smooth the undergarments, so that they do not show through to the top fabric. I made a small bum roll to go with this calico petticoat; so that the petticoat hem is always on the straight grain, and it sits straight at the bottom, it has to be shaped over the bum roll and pleated on the stand to allow for the extra length needed at the back.
