I used to love wearing fancy dresses as a kid. I mean, seriously loved. I tried wearing super fancy dresses everywhere. To school? You bet! The park? For sure! The supermarket? Why not!
...I even tried to sleep in one once before my mum stopped me (don't ask, I was a strange kid).

My favourites were the ones in bright colours, with puffy sleeves and the skirts that spread out like a record when you span around and around.

Well then one day life happened and I grew out all of my most favourite dresses and that was that. Talk about a crushing experience for me when I found out cute formal dresses stopped actually being cute after you turned seven and no matter how much you love them, you have to let them go eventually. I was terribly sad.

Now I've began to slowly pick up the pieces again and move on. It's been tough, but I've come to except that nobody sells puffy sleeved, bushy skirted, pastel coloured dresses for fifteen year olds. Thus goodbye went my childhood, I'm officially a teenager (though no one can take away my dolls...at least not yet).

So recently when brainstorming some new CC I thought, I why not make puffy sleeved, bushy skirted, pastel coloured dresses for my sims? Voila, three hours later and you get these!

Ta dah! Now your little girls can enjoy the warm spring weather in these cute little dresses!
Unless you live in Canada like me, and are still waiting for more spring like temperatures...

I think this has to be one of my favourite uploads so far, mainly because it took me so long just to get the base textures right. Which reminds me, sorry Skell, I stole your skirt and collar textures...oh wait, nevermind your policy says I can use them? Great! :D
