There aren't many designers in SL that I've found who can do prints on their clothing and match the clothing texture to the prim texture very well. And I get it. It's hard work! With the variations in avatar bodies, it's almost impossible. But when you find someone who is willing to put the work into doing it and doing it well, it's just something that you can't miss out on.
My friend Shiryu Musashi of Musashi-Do is one of those designers who is willing to sit and put the work into turning out lovely hand-drawn pieces with prim work that almost exactly matches the clothing texture. His latest release, Tender Blossoms, proves that fact!
An Eastern inspired mini cheongsam, Tender Blossoms is one of those pieces that you can dress up in a variety of ways. I found that it just took changing shoes to give me a completely different feel to the dress. With the high sculpted collar and the little sculpted frog buttons [um, not like the ribbit ribbit frogs! LOL], this pretty dress would make a great addition to your wardrobe. However, you WILL need to wear underwear because the glitch pants don't quite cover up all the goods. Also, and I already told Shiryu about this and he told me to be quiet [kidding, kidding!], the skirt prim is just one piece. I prefer two pieces because I have a weird shape or something and always need the back prim to be up a lot higher, but he showed me how to move the prim around so it would work. It might not require any modding for you, or you might need to rotate the prim a little, but it's not too hard.
The Tender Blossoms come in four delicious colors and are priced at $225L each, or a fatpack for $719L, and are available at the Mushashi-Do mainstore or on XStreet.
