I am a confirmed lover of the system skirt. It’s really the only way to get the long, lean look of a pencil skirt. There’s no skirt shape more flattering and sexy than a pencil skirt at least in my opinion. Like most people, I found the initial look of a pencil skirt in SL a bit disturbing because my derriere just ballooned when I put on a skirt. That’s because the system skirt floats above the mesh instead of laying flush on it. I quickly learned to create a skirt shape that fixed all that and have been loving system skirts ever since. It’s not that much work and you only have to do it once – make a copy of your shape, make the edits and save it as Skirt Shape and you’re good to go. There’s an awesome tutorial for you from Miko Okegamu on youtube.
Here you can see the gorgeous The Wave dress from Donna Flora – a system skirt. Wearing my skirt shape, the dress lies beautifully and there’s no ballooning bottom in sight. The dress is a gorgeous silk satin with a narrow skirt ending in a flounce at the knee with a sheer embroidered layer on the bodice and part of the skirt that is so delicately feminine that it demanded dainty, delicate shoes like the Poison #7 shoes from Bella Donna that lets you choose your jewels.
I added the lovely crystal jewelry set from luc fashion jewelry and an updo that has a retro flair from LAQ. I chose a relatively subdued makeup from Dutch Touch in order to keep the focus on the amazing dress.
