Bell-shaped "mini" petticoat ? 
10th-May-2014 09:35 pm

Hi girls !

I need your almighty knowledge, frilly fellows, before I resort to commission a seamstress.

Last year, I acquired a few Otome/Gyaru/loliable pieces that have enough room to fit a bell/cupcake-shaped petticoat (and look depressingly flat without one), so I was wondering if some of you knew where to buy mini-pettis (mid-thigh length) of this shape ? I found some that are A-line, but that's not what I need.
I really want to start wearing my Casual stuff, but I can't without the appropriate petti... Moderate to medium poof would be the best, since it is only for casual outfits.

Thanks in advance ~ !

P.S. : OT but good luck to college/university students who are trying to study for the finals (T__T).

Angelic Pretty has a mini version if their amazing bell-shaped petticoat.

Re-read your post..I really would advise you not to wear a petticoat with Gyaru stuff (do you mean like Liz Lisa..? Because I own about 50 of their dresses and not a single one would look good with a petticoat) or Otome stuff (IDK if you mean stuff like AMavel or stuff like Emily Temple Cute but both would look bad). Casual stuff is meant to be casual, it's not meant to be huge and poufy. The only exception is Fairy Kei.

Thank you for your input. An AP petticoat is a bit too expensive for me ATM, but I'll consider that option if I can' find anything cheaper.

And yes, I meant stuff like Liz Lisa, Amavel, Axes Femme, etc. And keep in mind that fashion is meant to be worn the way you want to ;). No exception.

Pretty sure loads of people wear Emily temple cute as a Lolita outfit with petticoats all the time.

Maybe I didn't understand precisely what you are looking for (in case, I'm sorry >_<) but I immediately thought at Bodyline... Did you check there?
I own some casual ruffled miniskirt similar to gyaru ones and they look very cute with PAN016. Also, their last PAN082 looks more cupcake-shaped compared with their usual mini-pettis (mine included) but the price is pretty high for BL standards.

Oooh, it's a great idea ! I spent so much time avoiding BL, I completely forgot about it x'D !
The price of PAN082 is much lower in yen, so it might actually be a good deal (but I don't know if this material will stay poofy long enough... I have to check the reviews). Anyway, thank you for your help :) !

Maybe some Leg Avenue petticoats? Someone suggested me to buy these as mini petticoat for AP mini skirts.

Oh, I didn't know they also had pettis ! I'm gonna take a look to what they have (hopefully it's not too expensive). Thanks for the suggestion :).

Yes they aren't that expensive and it's a good thing!

I second this suggestion. I have one that works great for shorter skirts.

Maybe this one?

Its a good length, and a minimal poof. Its not bell shaped, but its short and thin, so it can overstuff any gyaru skirts. And if the lace sticks out of shorter skirts, it may actually look really good!

If this exact one doesn't do it, another poster mentioned "leg avenue", and this is a leg avenue petticoat. if you peruse the petticoats section of that site, you'll see many shorter pettis that may work.

Thank you ! I'll take a look at this website too !

I have one of these cheep ones for a shortish and not too poofy petticoat - it's not amazing but they're okay enough for the price. Or if you're the crafty type, I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to sew your own.

My other option would be to ebay it, bad see what comes up. Good luck!

Thank you ! Seems very cheap indeed !

You can commission one from classical puppets. It takes a few months to receive but they're about $50 usd plus shipping.

Oh, I didn't know they took comissions !
Thanks for the suggestion, but it's way too long and expensive for just a casual petti ^^'.
