This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description 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.
UPDATE : 9/1/08 Tweaked the mesh bone weights so the bottom hem
will move better when the sim moves. Please redownload the mesh.
The new mesh will overwrite the old. Recolors are unchanged and still work.

UPDATE : added a pink stripe sweater for boys in a separate zip file

Sim children have almost nothing to wear indoors during fall and winter, so I made them some sweaters (top only). You MUST get both the MESH and RECOLORS to see the sweaters in game.

* Untucked, works with ANY MAXIS BOTTOMS (pants, skirts)
* for Boys and Girls
* has a Fat Morph

Look in the Related Pages Tab at the top of this page!
LOTS more long sleeve shirts, not just sweaters, in there!

Here's four top + bottom combos you could make (black tights here in NEW package)

Here's the same top with all the different Maxis bottoms. I checked that it works from the front, back, and sides.

Here's the 19 different recolors (pink stripes for girls only).

There are a few small glitches when wearing the pleated skirt or mini skirt, when the sim moves. I could have made the top even wider at the bottom, but it would have looked like a bell, so I didn't.

Usage Policy

- Do not put my work, in whole or in part, on paysites, including the Exchange.

- You may recolor this, in fact, please do! Do NOT include the mesh with recolors, link back here instead. This is so folks can see ALL the recolors in the recolor box, not because I want to sit on it going mine, mine! The UV map is in the zip file with the mesh.

- If you upload sims wearing this top, you may include the mesh with uploaded sims, but link back here for credit.

- You may modify my mesh, but please link back here for credit.

- You may use/modify my textures, with credit and a link back here, but you're really better off using the Maxis textures I started from.

It's ironic that I came on MTS2 today to look specifically for longsleeved untucked kid's shirts. Yay!

longsleeves as separates i have searched for for ever it feels like. and finally a hit! wonderful. :D

but why discriminate against boys? pink for girls only? at least i have a cousins child (boy) who simply love pink clothes
only 4 years old grant you but he still loves the colour.

gulhare I'll add a "pink for boys", no problem. I just thought people wouldn't want it, but you at least do. --- ok, there it is

I too searched a long time for longsleeve children's separates. Didn't find them. That's why I ended up making this. XD Don't understand why Maxis didn't make them for release with Seasons.

This is a great mesh. Any chance you might work on a short sleeve or 3/4 sleeve version of this? I don't have nearly enough seperates for my Sim kids, and these are perfect.

Sapnish Thank you. I was going to do tucked in longsleeves and turtlenecks next, but 3/4 sleeves is a good idea too, I'll see what I can do, no promises at this point though, in case it doesn't turn out nice.
