NOTE: Square Dance shops, sites and sources are often overlooked by non-square-dance Poufies in their search for both the ideal petticoat and the skirts and dresses they go under. Don't underestimate what you might find there, including special people that both understand your needs and those who can make those special items you crave!

Love II, and various lengths and fullnesses are available; I believe that
the one I got is the
most expensive (They may have other brands, too.)." WEBSITE

The owner is very sympathetic but you must be discreet and a Lady (Gentleman)--no "weirdos" allowed. She has a large selection of wedding, brides- maids, formal gowns, including the out-of-date fluffy, lacy formals of the 80's and the 50's. She stocks bridal petticoats and hoops and orders ANY kind of petticoat and her prices are LOW.

Claudette: "This establishment needs to be in a larger store. I wasn't particularly impressed with its displays, especially the dresses. Instead of normal three or four inch high heels, they only sold five inch, which I think is too much. The petticoats were all stuffed into large cardboard cartons and you were encouraged to rummage around by yourself, opening them up till you found one or more that you liked. Sadly, they were all very plain nylon netting in a small variety of colors, but without any pretty details at all; not one inch of lace, and plain cotton binding at their bottom edges. The full length slips they sold were very simple affairs of nylon tricot and rather unexciting looking lace. If you saw one in a regular store, you'd consider it a "cheapo". If they had any other color besides white, I couldn't find them. There were also quite a few of the items that seemed like they were intended for the Gothic crowd. But the makeover service they had was very good. WEBSITE

FROM JANET: A shop which has a good range of different paper nylon materials:
Abakhan Fabrics, 111-115 Oldham Street, MANCHESTER M4 1LN, UK Tel: 0161 839 3229
"They have a section with what they call "cheap rolls". At the left hand end at the bottom there are a lot of different paper nylons. I bought one which the girl said was "Rip Stop Nylon" (apparently if it rips the tear does not propagate). It is extremely crackly and will make a good noisy petticoat. The material (royal blue) is 1.5 metres (60 inch) wide and cost only £1.20 per metre (I bought 7 metres). The girl said that they always have some "rip stop nylons" in stock."
