Don't Fence Me In

I would rewrite that old, old song to say “Give me layers, lots of layers, and the ability to mod, don’t fence me in.” Take for example, this gorgeous cardigan. The wonderful Fair Isle knit and the lovely button details make me love it, but it’s a grumpy sort of love because it’s no mod. However, I did work around that and managed to make it fit me after all, but only after getting frustrated enough to close up Second Life and go chop up soup fixings into teeny tiny pieces.

Here I am wearing the sweater with the lovely PixelDolls Poppy Dress – a dress that will forever have my complete adoring love because it is modifiable. You see, I had planned to wear it with a sweater dress, but because of the lack of layer options,it was unwearable, after all, the cardigan has to go on top of, not underneath, the dress bodice. A dress bodice on the jacket layer alone is a sin.

Of course, I nearly didn’t get to wear this at all since the cardigans prims are no mod and they were way too small. I tried just raising them up so the wider part was higher, but then the top poked out of my chest. Luckily, after taking my frustration out on soup ingredients, I came back and  tried the option of editing individual prims, instead of the whole attachment and was able, by selecting the pieces individually, to stretch the prim around my obviously humongous waist.  I then moved the buttons into position and was happy with the result. It didn’t take that long, but it would be so easily avoidable if we could mod the prims.  If you won’t allow that, then we must have a resizer script. Selling no mod and no sizing script is just going to make people unhappy. I would have been less unhappy if it were not so cute, but it’s adorable and I wanted to wear it.  If only I had a foot-stomping animation at hand, it would have been used.

I really want to pass some extra loving on for this lovely dress because not only are the prims modifiable, so are the system pieces. One reason I was not inclined to wear it is because the open weave is really not winter wear – and in its original state, all that open weave is flesh…which would be dang chilly. However, this modding wonder allowed me to add a dark grey tint so it looks more like a pattern than an open weave…and doesn’t make me look like a frostbite seeking dummy.

Of course, after all that, I had to wear the dress for a few days…not changing clothes for two days, actually, to make it worth the effort. Now, thankfully, it’s all adjusted and in place and I won’t have to do that again…except that there’s many more gorgeous cardigans than this one at Gigi Couture and I bought most of them.
