How do I keep my dress from riding up under my backpack? (more inside)

I have slippery bloomers on underneath, which keeps the dress from riding up by itself. But my backpack reliably hauls the back of my skirt up. When I push the bottom of my backpack away from my butt, the dress slips back down, but I'd really rather not have to do that every twenty steps.
(I've tried non-slippery legging-type shorts too. The dress rides up slower but I have to haul it back down - it doesn't slip back down as soon as I push the backpack away a little. Also I think it rides up a bit even without the backpack.)
I use my backpack instead of a purse - partly because carrying a purse on one shoulder makes my back sore - so I don't want to get rid of the backpack.
Private school girls have been wearing skirts and backpacks for a long time - surely there must be a solution?
