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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I was thinking to myself that there just aren't enough recolours for this mesh floating around...so I decided to make a few. These are TOPS that can be worn with any close-fitting pants shorts or skirts (looser fitting bottoms bleed through a little bit)

You will NEED to download the mesh made by HystericalParoxysm you can get it HERE


Also...as it shows in the 2nd pic....if you can find a short enough skirt.....these tops can also be worn as mini-dresses! To save everyone the time it would take to hunt down such a short skirt...you can get the one I used (made by Mr.Bill) HERE

i *think* that the hair was an xmsims recolour by lyriclee, Im not sure where you would find it now.


and Im glad you all like them! I fell in love with this mesh and will probably create some more tops in a different style at some point. I also want to create some more options for close-fitting bottoms. This mesh alone is what makes me actually like dressing my sims in seperates.

If you have an Object request Feel free to send it to me. I may or may not do it however I am more likely to fulfill requests for items matching sets I have already uploaded. I'll respond either way.

The mesh crashes the game for a lot of people, myself included. So while I love to look at how pretty these are in the pictures, I can't download them because the mesh consitently crashes my game.

No, MY mesh doesn't cause crashes. My mesh was created as a solution to the crashing dress top problem, which flyingpigeon's dress tops have. I recoloured his dress tops but, because of the crashing, I looked for a solution to make my own. The mesh for these alpha dress tops will not cause crashes.

I love HP's mesh, but there really aren't enough recolors for it. I truly think it's more versatile than the new untuckable tops, since I've been able to pair the few of these I have with jeans, both skinny and wide leg, leggings, capris, bermudas, shorts, etc. I found some great capri leggings with cork bottom wedges on TSR a couple weeks ago that pair particularly well with this style top. My fav of yours is the knit blueberry. I can see that one working in a deep purple or burgundy as well.
