Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
UPDATE: It appears I made a stupid mistake when assembling the mesh file. The now-uploaded version shouldn't replace Maxis sundress mesh. The new file is named CoalTarAndGold-1.01.zip Please make sure the old mesh and recolours are deleted.
My attempt to "modernize" a Victorian formal dress. Its shape is roughly early 1880s, but its colours are simpler and real Victorian dresses definitely never were this revealing. Colours are mauve and crimson, the first two synthetic dyes that became widely used, hence the name.
Enabled for YA/A formalwear.
Other CC used in screenshots:
Skin tone is a default replacement I had since forever and I'm not really sure who made it since I've lost the original archive, but I think it's a modified Louis skin by Jwilson5 at SXS.

Feel free to do whatever you want (recolour, convert, re-mesh, redistribute, etc.) as long as it's kept off paysites of any kind and proper credit is given.
UVs are almost exactly the same as Celebration Stuff "ball wedding" dress, they're good enough for most part, but parts of the back of the skirt near the line that joins the front are more distorted than I'm comfortable with. Most recolours of that dress should work on this one too with minimal changes (mainly, removing the necklace.) Also, unlike the original, this dress is bump-mappable.
Texture made in Paint.Net, mesh in Milkshape, IrfanView was used for minor image edits.
