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.

Sorry about this, guys, but I realized today that the mesh was borked. It must've happened when I made the fat morph. My poor Sims had deformed ribcages. So I've fixed the problem and uploaded the mesh again. If you've already downloaded the big package of dresses, you can just replace the mesh. And if you haven't downloaded all the dresses yet, you can rest assured that I've put the fixed mesh in there. I'm really sorry about that!

I don't know if you're familiar with some of the boutique clothing that's been coming out for children (real children) lately. Bright colours, bold mixes of patterned fabric, full skirts, and ruffles are some of the hallmarks of this style of clothing. I couldn't resist trying to make at least one such outfit for my little girl Sims. This is the result. I'm not sure if my Sims are laughing because they're happy, or if they're laughing because they can't believe I dressed them in such crazy dresses.





I made eight different outfits. Each dress has a layered skirt and is worn over a pair of ruffled capri pants. A row of buttons decorates the neckline. All of the dresses also come with matching shoes.





Because the skirt is so full, I noticed a few issues with the mesh. If your Sim is standing still, her hands will sink into the skirt. The skirt will also push through chairs and couches. They're small issues, though; otherwise, the outfit looks really cute when your Sim is running, jumping, catching butterflies, having water balloon fights, etc.

I included a text file in the zip so you'll know which dress is which... although it may still be difficult to tell, due to all the colours! If in doubt, go by the colour of the shoes.

I was just thinking today that I want some Middle Eastern and Indian clothing. This mesh would work really well for that! I've seen pictures of little girls in the Middle East in dresses with leggins under them. (solid color dress, contrast color leggings, or white) No, no, not another kids clothing project! Must stop myself, list too long! Stop giving me ideas, you! ;p

Your recolors go really well with a lot of the fancy, artsy clothing from Free Time. If my grilled cheese sculptor has daughters, I'll bet they wear these.

The hands in skirt thing is not very noticeable actually, I've seen meshes where that was much, much worse. Nothing can be done about it though, and with your mesh, I don't think its really a big deal. Good of you to point it out though.

They look a lot like Oilily or Portofino, 2 trademarks that are very popular here in Germany.
When my girl was little, she wore dresses like that, too! I love them!
Thank you,

Oh my goodness, you did a fabulous job of recreating this style. They make me laugh, but I have a friend who sews clothes like this and sells them on eBay. My own daughters cringe at them but they're perfect for little Big Ha'red Beauty Pageant girls. :-D

Thanks so much!

These are SO cute! As verahenu said above, they look a lot like the Oilily style - which I adore. I would totally wear this kind of stuff myself if they made it in my size.

I am just laughing as I hit the download button. I was not getting anymore clothes, but how could I resist these? In the future, I have to ignore your posts, cause I am clogging up my download file everytime I see your creations. Either that or stop coming on MTS2! Haha, Nah won't happen! You are wonderful creative and I just love the colors here.

Now I must clean out the old files that I don't use anymore, since I use your clothes more often. LOL!!

Wow! I'm not sure if my daughters would have loved or hated this style - but my sims don't actually get a say, so yes, I'm downloading, and thank you very much!

I'm thinking these would be fairly easy to sew, so maybe I would have dressed my poor little darlings in something similar .... hard to lose them in a crowd, anyway. Well, I think they're really cute! And I'm NOT going to hide under a rock for saying that! (no room, Katy's already there )
