Does this dress need an underskirt?

Going to where this dress, does it need an underskirt? Was thinking about this but wasn't sure.

I could upload a pic of me wearing the dress if that helps?

Thanks smile

I meant to say going to where it a couple of times over the festive period! grin

Much as I'm a lover of petticoats I really don't think that dress is cut to take one, doesn't look to be enough fabric in the skirt. Don't suppose you have a photo of it laid flat with the skirt spread out?

OK this is the best shot I could get of it lying flat;

Ah, thanks, it's lovely! But, yeah, that's not going to work with a full petticoat I'm afraid. It'd all bunch together at the front when you move (and thus also look crap), they need the space of a full circle skirt to move without getting bunched.

I think Tara Starlet does less full but still petticoat-ish petticaots but IIRC they're not cheap.
