Underskirts

I never thought I would have so much difficulty finding something so basic. Even though I'm not particularly tall, I find a lot of my dresses end up higher on me than I would prefer, so I'm hoping to invest in a versatile, black underskirt to wear beneath them, preferably in chiffon.

However, I'm having a LOT of trouble even finding one. I used to think fanplusfriend had some but when I searched there was nothing, etsy only has a tiny handful and most with bustles, and ebay/google is no use as I find results referring to actual petticoats, not underskirts. Are there any suggestions for where I might be able to find one? I only need a couple inches or so of extra length, but it's a big enough of a difference to put me off of wearing my dresses to work now that it's summer and I'm not wearing tights.

I reserved one from Alice and the Pirates - the Lady of the Camellias Petticoat. It's a little pricey, but it's made specifically to go with lolita skirts and dresses, so it might be worth it to increase the versatility of your wardrobe.

I believe some of the Taobao lolita brands make underskirts as well, but I can't think of them off the top of my head. Maybe someone else will be able to point you in the right direction.

I purchased one from taobao via little dipper. it is AWESOME. for the price you can't beat it. the materials are really nice (soft chiffon) and its a godsend when you are 5'9 like I am and everything comes up short.

Have you checked Taobao? Little Dipper has some chiffon underskirts.
And you can check out the "underskirt" tag on this blog for a bigger list. :)

I believe Atelier Dormir is taking commissions for underskirts, although I'm not sure if they are chiffon or cotton. I suggest dropping them a note to check :)

I believe that Atelier Dormir recently started offering underskirts.

I ordered one from Chess Story on Taobao!
It looks a bit big though for a light summer wear..

I would recommend you this little european indie brand: http://madame-muffin.eu/store/index.php?route=common/home
Her "universal skirt" is a perfect underskirt and she sews it in few variations and you can choose either long or short version :)
I can say she sews really good, I love her clothing, and the prices are quite low :)

Here are some that I ran across while derping around on qutieland :) And underskirts are actually really simple to make if you would like, so here is a link that I had lying around. -> http://lotvdesigns.blogspot.com/2011/05/tutorial-chiffon-underskirt-sash.html
Hope that helps!
