but you can't always get where you'll go to

Picking up where the last one left off, at Charisma Designs' skirt from the "Chocolate Fantasy" dress:

You can clearly see two of the problem areas on this outfit, including the high lifted panel in the back, and the panel overlapping my right hand in the front. There's actually three panels that are lifted using my shape. And while normally, I can edit the panels (as I mentioned wanting to do with the glittery red dress), this particular skirt is no mod. So there's nothing I can do to correct the panel problems.

So, fine, I gave in. I dug up the Tatiana shape I'd flipped onto Marketplace some months ago, mainly because she was the widest through the hips I could think of.

But not even pouty Tatiana could save this dress.

And just so you know, while this is the Tatiana shape, I set saddle, hips and butt to max:

So yeah...never a shape I'd feel comfortable walking around the grid in, but it was about the best to make the skirt work. So, is it worth it to save? I'll have to look at the individual components later, because this is one where I like the bodice, but loathe the skirt. And mostly, I think, I loathe the skirt because it desperately needs adjusting, and I can't modify it.

(Worn with this: Curious Kitties' Azil skin in Peach [Winter Ice variant, free currently for group members at the main store, or for everyone on the Marketplace]; IM Capped's Soul Windows eyes in Snow Day [Visined]; the 'Holiday Shadow - Blue 2' makeup layer from elymode; and the "Sierra" mesh hair in Brown from Alice Project. All were either seasonal gifts or actual Advent calendar offerings. With the skirt so full, also, I forwent wearing stockings or shoes underneath it.)

Is this your first blog title that isn't a lyric, or did you mean for that first line of the text body to be the title?

No, I forgot I had this one scheduled to publish before I got up for the day. :)

Basically, trying a new thing--publishing with keywords for the title--so they'll be in the URL--but then editing for the song lyric.

There are bugs in the system.

And see? All corrected now. Just...not when I wanted it to be, precisely.
