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.
A set of seven recolours for your conservative elderly sims. I removed the metal things (whatever they're called) on the belt to make them more "generic"/timeless, otherwise they're exactly the same as the Maxis texture. Hope this is useful.

The mesh came with the base game -> no expansion packs needed.

(The twinsets that the ladies wear on the pics are also a set of Maxis recolours; they're available here)

they are much nicer than the maxis version

Thank you so much for the nice muted colors. Why is it that most people who make elder outfits make them all in really bright colors? People don't necessarily lose their good taste with age, after all.

Just discovered these, and they look lovely. I'd love to see those sweater sets, since it doesn't look like they were ever posted.

Um, right, they're still collecting dust here. I'll see if I get around to uploading them in the next few days, thanks for the reminder!
