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.
I really admire animera's capri and babydoll outfits. They inspired me to make capri pants separates for girls. (I'll make *cuffed* capris later too...) They go well with my babydoll tops for girls, as well as many other tops. If you like Maxis matchy clothing like these capris, check out oepu's Maxis Dreams project.
Package files compressed with jfade's awesome Compressorizer.

You need both the MESH and RECOLORS to see this clothing in game

yellow striped polo by fakepeeps7
purple tee recolor by jadedicara, based on migamoo's shirts
purple and orange geometric halters by me
white and aqua babydoll by me

pink babydoll, burgundy with orange trim babydoll, and green stripe babydoll by me
aqua tee and striped halter by Maxis

Here's a closeup of the grey sparkle capri pants. They are studded with "gemstones" in swirly starburst patterns and have aqua trim at the bottom hem. Note the slit at the bottom of the pant leg. All these capris have it.

- mesh has fat morph
- recolors are bump mapped

Thanks to animera for inspiration.
Thanks to the creators of SimPE and MilkShape.
Thanks to Wes and demon for MilkShape plugins.

You do so much awesome stuff for girls and so many cute recolors of your meshes! You should be a top creator.

Thank you everyone for the compliments.

blueberrybruises That is so nice of you, thank you. Picked and featured content, however, is up to the mods, we're not supposed to vote for it, so shhhhh....

Hey, um...I think these are really great and I wanted to have my Sims wear them, but they don't work. :/ When I go to buy them in-game, or to wear them, the whole lower part of the Sim comes out completely invisible. This does not happen in Body Shop, nor does it happen in Create-a-Sim - but every time I tried to load the family I had made with the Sim girl wearing them, it crashed. I have the mesh and the recolors all downloaded, and I even redownloaded them to be sure, but it won't work. Is this a file problem, or does my game just not like them as much as I do?

Tymaporer What version of the game do you have? Which expansion packs? Which stuff packs? I can try to recreate your setup with AnyGame Starter and see if I get a crash too, but they've always worked for me. If you have AnyGame Starter, can you create a new, clean neighborhood with no CC except those pants and tell me if you still get a crash?

I only have the base game. (I run out of disk space when I try to install EPs/stuff packs. ) I'll try that when I have time, hopefully tomorrow.

Hi, I love these capris, but I too am having a problem with how I see them. The color of the pants end at knee level but the pants them self go all the way to the shoe and are cuffed. It's really weird. I have BV so that may be the prob. I've had them before and saw them with no prob but my computer died. Then I got BV that's why I think it's the problem.

Mynxtres You have your graphics set to "low". Set them to "high" and everything will look fine.
