Instructions

  1. 1

    Choose your skirt. It can be any length, but for best effect, select a skirt that is full, like a circle skirt.

  2. 2

    Spray the underside of the skirt with anti-static spray. Let it dry per the spray's instructions.

  3. 3

    Spray the outer layer of your petticoat with anti-static spray. This should be the part of the petticoat that comes in contact with the inside of the skirt. Let it dry per the spray's instructions.

  4. 4

    Put on the petticoat first, arranging it so it lays evenly. Put on the skirt, straightening out the petticoat underneath as needed.

  5. 5

    Arrange the skirt so it's full and flouncy as you walk.

Tips and warnings

  • If you want the petticoat to show, use something with a decorative edge, such as lace.
  • If you do not want the underskirt to show, select a petticoat that is a few inches shorter than your skirt.
  • Full lightweight skirts have a better range of motion. Skirts made with heavy materials will hang and not have as much movement.
  • Use the anti-static spray in a well-ventilated area. The fumes can be dangerous.
