Loved them! I think I like the green too, but the grey will be good for one of my sims who is a bit of a colour-prude, only wears black, grey and white.

Absolutely love them all! But I have to say, I agree with you, I really like the green one the best. And the shoes you made to go with the dress' and they match perfectly!!! So awesome.

You're apparently super-talented But it'd be fair (and positively patriotic) to give credit to Marimekko for the pattern Agree with the others, the shoes are supercool!

Thanks for the idea, Annikainen. I never thought of that, but now I'll add Marimekko to the list of additional credits.

My favorite is the red. The shoes are the "kicker" for these snazzy outfits!
