    Default kick off a butt

    Dear all,

    In the following context:

    "NOTHING KICKS OFF A LITTLE BUTT THAN A TINY BIT OF A RUFFLE"

    ***nShe means the ruffle of the jacket in her hand.

    "kick off a butt" here means to make it look beauitiful or to make it seem smaller???

    Thanks a lot.

    Yes, to enhance.

    "little" here does not mean "small"
