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.

What could be more fun than a whole set of separates inspired by your favourite ice cream flavours? These frothy, ruffly pieces are perfect for your prim girly girls (but they're practical enough to play in, too).

There are twenty pieces in all, with five colours of each of the four distinct pieces of clothing.



First, there's a short zippered jacket that'll ward off the winter chill. It has a half-belt around the back, just above three rows of flirty ruffles.

The other top is a long-sleeved t-shirt with a faux-layered look. Two coordinating buttons adorn the front.

The skirt has two layers of ruffled goodness over a pair of cute pantalettes (just in case your Sim likes to do cartwheels).

And, finally, there are the shorts with their button trim and ruffled hems. Both the skirt and the shorts come with striped tights and brown pull-on leather boots.



The five colours are as follows: mint (green), strawberry (pink), chocolate (brown), vanilla (off-white), and spumoni (brown with pink & green accents). Your Sims can mix and match to their hearts' content.

These pieces all use new meshes, which are included in the respective zip files.

Polygon Counts:
ruffled jacket = 1290
long-sleeve t-shirt = 1138
ruffled skirt = 996
shorts = 798

Oh my god! These look so nice and yummy. The spumoni makes me think of Rocky Road... You're making me hungry now! These are perfect for my upper-middle class girls. Thank you!!

ETA: I was just wondering if you could make similar shorts for the boys? Goodness knows we need some more Victorian-ish clothes for boys

O wow, those are adorable!
You did a fantastic job creating meshes (I *love* the ruffles at the back of the jacket <3) and the textures are so beautiful. I like all the recolours, all of them are gorgeous.
Last but not least, the cherry on top - those are separates *loves*

Thank you!

Brilliant! More clothes for my Sim Kids! My Sims Thank You!

I don't get why so many Simmers hate Marsha Bruenig. She actually grows up to be quite pretty if you allow her to.

Very, very cute. I look forward to more colors of these outfits!

Should you really be using the work flirty to describe a child's piece of clothing, though?

Should I?

flirt:

1. To make playfully romantic or sexual overtures.
2. To deal playfully, triflingly, or superficially with: flirt with danger.
3. To move abruptly or jerkily.

You should see some of the requests I've gotten. Maybe then a description of "flirty ruffles" wouldn't seem so offensive.

I never said I was offended. I know though that some forums are stricter than others and brought it to your attention just in case someone *did* get upset by it.

Adorable! I was in search of coordinating, but not identical, outfits for a set of quad girls and these were perfect!

These look absolutely great, they would be really nice for boys as well.. And they separates, that's always plus. But could you possibly make a bit more colourful version of these, colourful, but not very bright..?
