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 MTS - check below the description for more information.
Hi everyone!

I decided to challenge myself and follow a wonderful turtorial written by the lovely serenity-fall.
I picked one of my favorite dresses from the sims 3 store - The homecoming dress, only I decided to make it for adult females in the sims 2.

The dress is colorful, wide and full of details and comes with flat shoes. I decided not to go for heels this time, since that would make it a bit too sweet for my taste. However, feel free to do whatever you want; convert to other ages, add or remove parts of shoeswap all you like

As you might have noticed: The actual dress shape is not ''glued'' to the body, since Ts3 Meshes are a little thicker, and otherwise Ts2 body would clip right through the dress while walking or moving. I had to fix this a few times before all the problems were gone and it was good to go

The fat morph and normal body morph look a lot alike, since the skirt is pretty wide, multiple body types would fit underneath that. I wanted to keep it that way because it's just like that in real life with wider outfits. The chest and waist part however, are a little wider on the fat morph.
Comes in six lovely colors:

The dress poly is 2112 which is a little tiny bit higher than EAxis normal outfits.
I thought I fixed all the clipping and animation problems, and tried the mesh out in my game with almost every animation. Ofcourse there will be hands clipping through the dress when the sim is sitting down or just standing - This is a common 'issue' and comes with all wider dresses. If there are still some issues, let me know.

Enjoy and happy simming!
