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.
No EP required.*

For your conservative elderly ladies: A bunch of recolours of the Maxis twinset that came with the base game, in non-lollipop colours and with plain t-shirts instead of the pullover. The twinsets go well with a lot of the Maxis bottoms and also with a set of skirt recolours I made a long long time ago (available here ); they're also very nice with more colourful bottoms (flower print skirts and the like).

The jacket comes in six colours, each with a couple of different shirts underneath; the ones with regular t-shirts are sorted by color of jacket, the v-neck ones are all in one bundle:

EF_T_twinsets_with_tshirt_blue.zip -- blue jacket, 8 versions
EF_T_twinsets_with_tshirt_brown.zip -- dark brown jacket, 12 versions
EF_T_twinsets_with_tshirt_green.zip -- green jacket, 8 versions
EF_T_twinsets_with_tshirt_grey.zip -- grey jacket, 13 versions
EF_T_twinsets_with_tshirt_lightbrown.zip -- light brown jacket, 10 versions
EF_T_twinsets_with_tshirt_red.zip -- red jacket, 7 versions
EF_T_twinsets_with_vneck.zip -- mixed colours, 11 versions

("red" is actually more dark purple-bordeaux-ish, see screenshots)

Thanks to akatonbo for reminding me of this. Enjoy!


* At least I hope so .. I made these with Base+NL; as far as I recall there were no Bodyshop issues at that time (like with the Pets-non-backwards-compatibility mess, whatever it was exactly, I haven't paid too much attention to that). Please let me know if you do run into problems and I'll update this post accordingly. Thanks.

Very nice! Our poor elders are so neglected!
Have you thought about doing some basic recolours for our older men?

TheSilverLining: Don't hold your breath. These files are more than a year old, I only made them because I needed something for my own game and then I couldn't stop doing more and more variations .. I have no intention of touching BodyShop again anytime soon. I'm happy to see you like them, though =)

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I've always disliked Maxis/EA's versions of elderly female clothing. (and some of the elderly men's clothing.) These are very much appreciated!

Thanks! I've been looking around for these ever since I saw them on some elder sims that were modelling seperate bottoms. Thanks again!
