Autumn Chill

Posted in Casual Wear at 11:47 pm by Catt

I had a lot of trouble with this one. Not the actual creation of the design, that was fun šŸ™‚ But I agonized for hours over the permissions I would release it with, the pricing and, of course, the sales picture. I am still not happy with the sales picture but I think it’ll work out ok.

This set is being released mod/copy. Now my normal permissions are mod/trans and it was a tough decision for me to change that for this release. So why did I? Well this set comes with 6 different colour shirts, on both the shirt and undershirt layer, 3 pairs of footless wool tights and of course the dress, the top of which is on the shirt and jacket layer. As you can see, thats a lot of items on a lot of layers. Practically to the point where you can create 2 complete outfits.

Now I have no issues with someone wanting to give away the unused layers to a friend, newbie, whatever. Where I have problems is someone splitting the set and only selling part of it at something like a yard sale. I feel that if someone were to buy it that way then my items would be used to cheat another resident. And that just doesn’t work for me. So the decision was made and the outfit is mod/copy. Right now it is only available in world at my main store, however over the weekend I will get it out to SLX etc, and then you will be able to buy it as a gift for someone if you would like. Or IM me, I’d be happy to send it to someone for you šŸ™‚

So the outfit. Well the dress is made from wool, a really dark brown that is so close to black in some environments you wont be able to tell it isn’t. I included the wool tights in light grey, dark grey and black. The shirts are basically a check shirt in 6 basically pastel colours, blue, light blue, orange, green, yellow and pink. The sales posters don’t even come close to showing all of the possible combinations of this piece but there is no way I can get all that in a 256×256 image, and to make it a different size would move away from the standardized look in my store.

So here is the sales picture (you’ll really need to click on it to make it bigger to be able to see the shirts pattern properly), and I’ve added some pictures below of my own to show some of the possible combinations šŸ™‚

ok so my extra pics are thumbnails so this time you really do have to click on them – lol – and yes in the last picture I cheated a little in that the pants I used are not in this set.Ā  These are just some of the possible combinations!

    Hi there,

    I think this outfit is adorable and really I prefer I prefer as many layers as possible and the perms set to mod/copy since in my own inventory I can then use the make outfit selection in appearance mode to save mixes and matches that I’ve made.

    Hi Delilah

    Hey thanks for commenting šŸ™‚ Permissions is one of those things that I’ve agonized over quite a few times in the past, and read every thread where people are asked what they prefer and its really split about 50/50. I’ll probably stick with mod/trans but on the big multi-layer projects like this change it to copy/mod šŸ™‚
