Pettiskirt?

I have a couple of dresses now which have a bit of a flare in the skirt, and I like them. It seems to help hide my tummy.

But I think I need a pettiskirt, as when they are washed and get softer they don't flare so much. Not a super puffy one, just a slight flare one. I saw a lovely one on Kitten D'amour that could work at different lengths but it was expensive, so I don't think I can get it. And also it would have to be one that would still 'hang on' to my waist somehow if I'm wearing a tummy holder thing which makes things a bit more slippy.

Any recommendations where I could get them in the first place, and better still if reasonably priced?

Malcomodes make the softest ones but they're not cheap. I've bought a $10 from China through ebay before which has been fine. That one probably has the least flare of all of the ones I have.
Lindy bop is another option: https://www.lindybop...petticoats.html

I have one from Laurina Jean Retro online, which was not too bad in the price stakes. It is pretty poofy though.

I have a Hell Bunny one. Hell Bunny everything is excellent quality and their prices aren't as high as a lot of the other brands out there.

I either got it through Beserk or Tragic Beautiful.

But basically where you would be looking is the rockabilly/alternative/gothic stockists, they're common accessories on those sites.

I was going to recommend Hell Bunny too. I bought mine through Atomic Cherry, but heaps of places stock them.

They are so easy to make. Buy a half slip, some tulle and (take it to a seamstress to) sew a layer of gathered tulle about half way down the slip.
