"Dress Me Correctly" Mod
Fixed error in school clothes changing - see section below
So I have designed a global mod that controls which outfit the Sim puts on when they get out of the shower/bath, instead of it always being the Sims everyday outfit. Now when your Sim has finished their shower/bath they will get dressed into an appropriate outfit based on how close they are to starting any of the following 'tasks':-
- Going to work
Some jobs have special uniforms, and some the Sim goes wearing their Everyday outfit. Bear this mind if you see your Sim change into Everyday clothes when you are expecting Work clothes. The easy way to tell is if your Sim owns a Dresser; there will be a separate menu option "Dress for Work" if this Sim has a special outfit to wear to work.
- Going to school
Private School has a uniform, but for Public School your Sim goes wearing their Everyday outfit. Bear this mind if you see your Sim change into Everyday clothes when you are expecting School clothes.
- Going to bed
Bedtime is calculated based off School Start time for Children and Teens and off Work Start Time for Adults and Elders. This means that bedtime moves for Adults and Elders.
If by any chance your Sim does end up changing into the wrong outfit, no harm will come to them as they will still change into the correct attire when attending to this 'task'.
Please note that your Sim only changes clothes if they take a shower or a bath - it's not going to direct them to change just because it's two hours before Work/School/Bedtime.
I have done a lot of testing of this mod, with various different job start times crossing various time boundaries, but I shouldn't pretend that this is perfect, so if you do find an issue where you think the Sim is getting dressed into the wrong outfit the following section tells you the information I will need.
- Fixed a problem where children changed into school uniforms (only apparent when children attend Private School) on Saturday. Thanks to myokichoccy and Sadie79 for reporting this issue.
- Fixed a problem where children changed into school uniforms on Snow Days. Thanks to Sadie79 for reporting this issue.

There is another related mod by another Modder which if you don't like this mod, may suit you better. Sims spin into a towel after taking a shower/bath. Find it here.
There is a toddler version of this mod here.
