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.
These are default replacements for yfbottomneohippiedress, the long YAF skirt from University. Rather than make replacement sets, I made individual replacements for each outfit. You can mix and match them as you choose, so long as you only use one replacement for each outfit. To make it easier to keep them separate, each outfit's replacements are in a separate rar file. While the Maxis originals are only for young adult females, the replacements are available to both YAF and AF. Shoe sounds have been adjusted so Sims wearing these will sound like they are wearing boots, and resources are compressed.

The replacements are taken from Cat's broomstick skirts, and the tie-dye patterns from iCad's recolors. For Cat's skirts, I've included tucked and untucked versions, but iCad's are only available as tucked. The mesh is Cat's fixed version of a mesh by Trapping. Per Cat's policy, the mesh is not included; if you don't already have the mesh, you will need to get it from that thread (it's a separate download).

The default packages replace individual outfits from University, and require University to work properly. While you can only have one default for any given outfit, you should be able to use my individual default packages with any default that replaces all the yfbottomneohippiedress outfits, so long as my packages load after it. This is not a mesh replacement, so if you have a replacement mesh for yfbottomneohippiedress, you can keep it. If you are using a category mod to make the University neohippie outfits available to adults as well as young adults, make sure that the default packages load after the category mod, or the replacement outfits will not appear properly. If the category mod is placed in the Bins or Skins folder of your latest EP, you should not have any problem.

Click the buttons to see the available replacements for each of the Maxis skirts.
