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.
I loved this top in TS4, and thought it would be really nice with TS3's powerful and versatile CAST system, so you could change the lace and shirt colours separately. Actually making it work like that, with all the lace cutouts and transparencies was trickier than I anticipated, but I got it working fairly well, though not quite perfectly. Two recolourable areas: The lace and the main shirt. Formal and everyday, tucks into bottoms so it shouldn't be midriffy except with all but the lowest cut bottoms. This is a recolour of a base game mesh, so no EPs or SPs or anything required.

Thanks to Delphy for CTU, Peter and Inge for S3PE, and the tool creators of the TS4 texture export bits. Also thanks to EA, for making lovely textures for me to snaffle bits of and convert to games I actually want to play.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
