SLCP, or the most amazing software I own…

Yes, that’s right. Firefox is smexxy, but doesn’t make me happy like SLCP. Photoshop is a big pile of hotness, but SLCP rocks my socks.

You see, I’m making an 1860s day dress for a friend. It’s got this sweet neck ruffle that’s making my whole day (yes, I handpainted it… craziness!), and pretty little dropped shoulders. Wait… what? Dropped shoulders?? What have I gotten myself into!!

Well, SLCP has come to my rescue. I’m so damn finicky about seams, seriously. They have to match, HAVE to.  So, I have just saved about 100 versions of the day dress, with little red tick marks to see where seams line up. Woops, nope, that one didn’t work… save again, reload… closer, but not quite…

I’ve finally got the seams marked. Everything after this is just pure happy painting. But I could do it so easily because SLCP is so freaking amazing. Seriously. If you make clothes, you need this.  Once you have it, you get to make smexxy screengrabs like this:
